View Full Version : Do AI ships fire their TTs?

Subject kinda says it all. I made a surface action mission and parked my sub nearby to watch, and the IJN "long lancers" didn't fire their TTs. If the IJN ships are deprived of their excellent torpedos, they might as well not bother with AI to let surface units fight at all, IMO.
I still haven't had much confirmation as regards AI torpedoes.
That said, I think even if AI torpedoes work from torpedo bombers and subs, there may be a practical reason why the devs wouldn't have them enabled for surface ships - because they'd then be firing them at submarines, which I believe they wouldn't have done historically.
Surface combat in general, in both SHIII and IV, has been really abstracted. I wouldn't count on much correctness in that department.
