I got three 15% discount coupon and I decided to get an Orkhan. Outfitted and tested her. got a weird result

 

Spoiler

shot-20_11.19_20_43.47-0728.thumb.jpg.2f024af46f6e89db932013e7e6a6f22a.jpg

1 torp hit on an iowa for 53872. Ship killed

 

So:

 

1. This was a detonation, right?

2. Can WG make it a regular feature? A torpedo that can dev strike a BB?

99.9% chance it was a torp detonation. You can check the replay to confirm.

As for torps dev striking BBs, play the IJN DD line or get Paolo Emilio as they require few torpedoes to sink any target.

Was a detonation. I did same thing to a 90% health Yamato with one Gearing torp. RNG loved you for a moment!

Get enough coal for HMS Campbeltown & it becomes a regular feature!

You can check it on the team screen...the Iowa will (should anyway) have a detonation achievement for the battle.

Detonation, ability of both ship and aerial torpedoes to cause detonations of all ship types has been a feature for a long time. It just seems rarer as in most cases players can't necessarily 'aim' to cause one, unless your very good with a CV, point blank, and/or using a line that allows single torpedo launches. Generally speaking due to the way the detonation mechanic works, and the fact BB's take most of the damage on the bow near the turrets, it's easy especially with HE for their magazine HP pool to be reduced, and a torpedo hit near turrets 1 and 2 to cause detonations, seemingly quite often I find in USN BB's more than others but that could be confirmation bias or blind, silly, do-da, clueless luck.

It is a regular feature; a torpedo can detonate any ship with less than 75% of it's health left.

I've had it happen a few times in various BBs.

It almost always seems to result from taking a torp to the nose lol.
