Funny torpedo barge :)

Torps bad. Nerf torps 🤪

Or just don't get hit duh ...

I ran into another CMDR with a torp build in Shin with my hybrid Chally and though well what
could happen if I lose my shields. Too bad he had 3 pack hounds also :LOL:

Heck no! BUFF torps! ED is a WWII simulator, and torps are what let small ships (planes) pose a threat to large ships (battleships). Oh how I wish ED took the WWII emulation to its full conclusion, where large ships would need fighter escorts and flak screens to protect themselves from wings of small fighters with torpedoes. Instead, well... I've done enough grumbling for one day - you fill in the blanks.

BUFF TORPEDOES

Firstly, there are no battleships that a player could control in the game.
Secondly, fighters on ships do not pose any danger to attacking ships. They simply do not pay attention to them.
The game has already reached the point where the torpedoes from the Imperial Cutter remove the shield from the FDL, in your opinion, is this the correct simulation of World War II?

Unengineered torpedoes from my Eagle should remove the unengineered shields from a Cutter. That's my correct simulation of WWII ;)

Aircraft torpedo bombers could very rarely drown a battleship, but as a rule they perished themselves.
And so that they could do it, they were covered by a large number of other aircraft, diverting the fire on themselves.
There are no restrictions in the Elite, and therefore the interaction of torpedoes as weapons does not fully correspond to the Second World War.

As you say, none of our ships are battleships, and I don't expect torpedoes to "sink" a capital ship.

IIRC, torpedoes used to be much more devastating in ED, but people cried about this and they were nerfed to the point of being useless except for these niche G5 engineered builds. I'd love to see them restored to their previous glory. Until then, they are absolutely useless to me. I'd much rather have seekers or even dumbfires.
