I hope this is a bug or the Constellation is a piece of crap.

One torp from my kagero and a nearly full strength BB disintegrated. 

I suppose it could be a "detonation' but in all  my games, ive never seen a BB detonate from 1 torp

I guess... You're not a torp main...

Since I am assuming its a capt. and ship not fully spec'ed (on the red side). a torp will cause a detonation... Regardless if its the first or last torp...

It does happen... Dets are not restricted to solely to guns...

That was a fun and engaging detonation. It used to be you could kill a ship (including teammates) from full health with a 0 damage HE shell near miss.

Detonations can happen when a ship is at or below 75% hp and a sufficient hit - either straight AP or HE splash, which includes torpedoes - hits a magazine.

That was only (rather) recently lowered from 100%, IIRC....

Depends on your definition of 'recently', IIRC it was more than a year ago, if not closer to two. Not sure, time is weird over the past year and a half, eversince early 2020.

I could not recall exactly either as time certainly flies when you are having "fun"?????.....

I one torped a near full health Grosser Kurfurst  like that once with a Yoshino torpedo.  I must have dropped it just below the threshold before I rolled the 7.

Years ago there was no 75% limit. I once saw a 97200 torp damage by Ognevoi

Did that to a full health Yammy a long time ago. The salt was delicious.

At high tiers.... The torp main or torp play style I was refering too... Ends at tier 6 with the FUBUKI...

Many that you listed I consider imposters (Akizuki), IMO... The Shima can be labeled as a torp ship...However, in tier 10 meta... That is pushing it...

I have the OP one better.  One Z52 torp, 55K damage.  It does happen that a torp hits a magazine I guess.

In my experience w/o the detonation flag or other mitigating mods. This is the way BB's detonate the one stray asashio, shima or any other torp. That can strike BB's
