Does the fighter consumable no longer have any ship or torpedo spotting capability?

It can spot ships if the fighters enter the miniscule aerial spotting range of them, but no, they cannot spot torpedoes.

How does removing the ability of CV planes to spot all DD torps?

Or are you focussing on 1 CV not getting its (ridiculous) stealth torps spotted by cat fighters, and forgetting about all the other torps getting spotted?

If anything, it would be placating DD players.

I can't remember, didn't planes lose torp spotting before the rework?

This pro vs. anti CV thing is getting old. Nobody's even trying anymore, all we get are non sequiturs lol.

It came with 8.0, reworked mechanics for the spotter planes. I am of two minds on this; historically planes did spot torpedoes, and strafed them to detonate them, which apparently worked. On the other hand it's an incredible buff to CVs if they could spot torpedoes. Probably a plus that they nixed the spotting by planes.

Probably should have said nobody asked for this.Which is the case
