Torpedo bombers are aircraft specifically designed to carry the anti-naval-units self-propelled warheads called torpedos or also know as "fish".

Torpedo bombers usually are multipurpose maritime planes which have the ability to carry more versatile payloads than just "fishes". Load-outs can include various bombs and rockets.

Their designs can widely vary. Typically features of torpedo bomber often include:

They may also include:

Challenges with using torpedoes can include:

  • Slow airspeed required to properly release torpedo
  • Best release distance is 1 km from target (adjust aim to compensate for moving targets)
  • Too steep of dive angle causes torpedo to sink
  • Torpedoes are "fire and forget", once released they will travel in the direction launched until they either hit something or run out of fuel

Fun facts:

  • Tanks positioned in the water on beaches or waterfront maps can be destroyed with torpedoes
  • When torpedoes were released, pilots or bombardiers would typically notify others by saying "Fish away!" or "Fish in the water!"
