The #1138 and #1602 VA-111 Shkval's acoustic signature is completely incorrect, even for an approximation. The Shkval uses a solid rocket motor to propel it through the water at high speed, creating a supercavitation effect (until it either detonates or switches over to a standard propeller in the newer -E model), this was known to be incredibly loud and would easily be picked up by sonar both passive and active.

However, in CMANO the values for it have been copied from the Mk48 series (making it unrealistically stealthy considering it's propulsion and supercavitation effect.)

All of its SIGNATURE values should be multiplied by a factor of at least three to approach a realistic value for what is quite literally a rocket propelled torpedo, but if possible the -E vairant should have some way to return to normal values once it switches to standard propulsion.

Ah OK, I always thought that was more for missing database items rather than errors. I'll post it and any other future issues like this there then.

I think you can still post bugs here that might be related to DB issues. For instance some DB issues can lead to freezing of the simulation - but those issues have to be investigated first, so I still think this is the right place for them.

Yeah, if Command freezes or anything like that, please make a new thread for it. But if a number in wrong in the database, please use the dedicated database thread.
