Hi all , i have been looking around and was wondering, say you have a cruiser with heavy aa you need to take out in CV is it possible to drop torpedoes so that the CA cant detect the torpedoes. Like a distance drop. I could remember a cv doing this to me once i think...

 

What is a good range to this if it is possible or any video or guide on this 

 

oops wrong forum though meant to post in on EU forums

Use Alt drops to drop the torpedos right along the hull of the ship. Make sure to give the torpedos room to arm and lead the ship to account for it's speed. Or you can try and torp the ship with the very edge of the torpedo range to avoid AA as much as possible, but they would also have room to turn and avoid and leading the ship is very hard to do correctly.

Not really.  Even on a manual drop if the CA is watching you can see the torps after the drop; they don't become really highlited though until they armed.  If they are dropped that close the CV is running the risk of not having them arm in time if the ship turns into the drop.
