It is not bug report. I am interested in opinions of knowlegable people on this forum.
is hit probability of torpedo independent of target size? Is it as easy to hit 7m rhib, as VLCC?
Will need to check the code, but from memory target size is only taken into account for straight-runners.
is hit probability of torpedo independent of target speed? Is it as easy to hit target doing 30+ knots as stationary?
Can't remember but do not think so. It might be there for straight-runners, Dimitris spent a fair amount of time on that bit.
is hit probability of torpedo independent of target evasive action? Do last moment change of course/speed have no impact on probability?
Not currently, although we'd like to improve the torpedo model in the future.
is hit probability, especially for surface targets, not affected by sea state? Surface noice at high sea state don't complicate homing?
Some explanation/assumptions - I assume, that in all cases, launching platform was able to detect target (signature matters for detection), obtain and keep solution (again, signature matters). I asume that target was unable to outrun torpedo - if was able to outrun speed obviously matters. The questions are only about impact of various circumstances on endgame.
I am aware, that there is very little data (especially unclassified - one can wonder if classified data are much better on the subject) to form an opinion - not a lot torpedos were fired in anger since WWII. That is why I am asking this questions - if answer is obvious, there is no reason to ask.
