The Type 93 Torpedo was a Japanese torpedo put into service in 1933. It is an oxygen-propelled torpedo that was given to surface ships to use against enemy battleships, and was used to deadly effect in the Pacific. In-game, it is mounted on the later Japanese warships, such as the [[IJN Yugumo]] destroyer and [[IJN Furutaka]] cruiser. Compared to most other torpedoes, these torpedoes have exceptionally long range that can reach as far as 20km, move very fast at 93km/h, and packing a very deadly warhead that is capable of sending even the toughest cruisers to the bottom of the ocean with one well-placed hit.  
+
Mounted on various Japanese destroyers and cruisers, the Type 93 Torpedo is one of the best ship-launched torpedoes in the game. Combining an unrivaled 20 km range, excellent 91 km/h top speed, and large 627.2 kg equivalent warhead, this powerful torpedo can allow even light ships to effectively damage or even sink the largest ships in the game.

The Type 93 Torpedo is possibly the best ship-launched torpedo in the game with an unrivaled range of 20km, 93km/h speed and 627kg of TNT equivalent explosive power. This gives it the longest range and fastest speed of any ship-launched torpedo in the game, and the second largest torpedo warhead. This will allow you to destroy any ship in the game with a torpedo strike. Destroyers are no match for the Type 93 and even cruisers will have a hard time holding up to a single torpedo strike.
+
One useful feature of the Type 93 torpedo is that on all ships to which they are mounted on as of [[Update 1.89 "Imperial Navy"]], extra torpedoes are stored on the ship and allows the torpedo launchers to be reloaded in battle, usually enough for one full reload of the torpedo launchers. While limiting the amount of torpedoes the ship can send at once, this feature is very useful and allows these ships to carry much more torpedoes than most other ships. This is particularly useful in [[Realistic Battles]] as a single ship can launch multiple salvos of torpedoes without having to visit a capture point to reload. In [[Arcade Battles]], this will allow you to have a faster rate of fire for your torpedoes, since the torpedoes will replenish faster than the standard Arcade reload, allowing you to launch waves of torpedoes very quickly.

This feature is very useful in [[Realistic Battles]], as it allows your ship to carry more torpedoes than most other ships which do not sport the ability to reload their torpedoes.

The Type 93 is a very useful weapon in the Encounter gamemode, as their long range and fast speed will allow it to strike at the enemy convoy immediately from spawn. They can also be used against players by firing a large spread in an area where one would expect many ships to pass through, such as a narrow pass. They can catch an enemy ships off-guard at a distance where most conventional torpedoes will not be able to reach and effectively shut down sections of the map where they are launched.

Description

Mounted on various Japanese destroyers and cruisers, the Type 93 Torpedo is one of the best ship-launched torpedoes in the game. Combining an unrivaled 20 km range, excellent 91 km/h top speed, and large 627.2 kg equivalent warhead, this powerful torpedo can allow even light ships to effectively damage or even sink the largest ships in the game.

2700 91 20.00 1 50 Type 97 490 627.2

Effective damage

The Type 93 Model 1, mod 2 torpedo carries a warhead with a TNT equivalence of 627.2 kg, making it one of the most deadly torpedoes in the game, behind only the Type 93 Model 3 and Mk.16. A single hit is usually enough to severely cripple large ships such as heavy and light cruisers, if not outright sink them.

Comparison with analogues

Give a comparative description of torpedoes that have firepower equal to this weapon.

Usage in battles

One useful feature of the Type 93 torpedo is that on all ships to which they are mounted on as of Update 1.89 "Imperial Navy", extra torpedoes are stored on the ship and allows the torpedo launchers to be reloaded in battle, usually enough for one full reload of the torpedo launchers. While limiting the amount of torpedoes the ship can send at once, this feature is very useful and allows these ships to carry much more torpedoes than most other ships. This is particularly useful in Realistic Battles as a single ship can launch multiple salvos of torpedoes without having to visit a capture point to reload. In Arcade Battles, this will allow you to have a faster rate of fire for your torpedoes, since the torpedoes will replenish faster than the standard Arcade reload, allowing you to launch waves of torpedoes very quickly.

The Type 93 is a very useful weapon in the Encounter gamemode, as their long range and fast speed will allow it to strike at the enemy convoy immediately from spawn. They can also be used against players by firing a large spread in an area where one would expect many ships to pass through, such as a narrow pass. They can catch an enemy ships off-guard at a distance where most conventional torpedoes will not be able to reach and effectively shut down sections of the map where they are launched.

Pros and cons

Pros:

  • Extremely powerful warhead
  • One of the fastest torpedoes in the game
  • Tied for longest range torpedo, at 20 km
  • Ships that carry Type 93 often carry a large amount

Cons:

  • Ships that carry Type 93 must reload in order to access entire load

History

Without the required number of capital warships, nor the industry to produce them, to match the United States in the Pacific, Japan would not be able to win a prolonged gun fight with as there would always be more US ships than Japanese. Instead, they opted for a strategy in which series of mass torpedo attacks would weaken the US fleet ahead of a major decisive battle. Thus, development for a stealthy, long range torpedo began in 1928.

The resulting torpedo was the Type 93 torpedo, referred to as Sanso Gyorai (酸素魚雷). The Type 93 torpedo has a diameter of 610 mm (24 inches), is 9 meters (29 feet, 6 inches) long, and weighs 2700 kg. It was rather large compared to its analogues in other nations, allowing it to carry a large 490 kg explosive charge. Many torpedoes of the time used combustion engines with compressed air oxidizers for propulsion. In contrast, the Type 93 torpedo utilized pure, compressed oxygen as the oxidizer. Air is composed of roughly 20% oxygen and 78% nitrogen, the latter of which was a waste product that manifested as long bubble trails.
