Ok, I know how hard it is to stump you guys, but I need about a day off before I can get back to this, so let's see if anyone can tell me what this image is from (they are inside a sub)

I'm going to throw up the next question for you (hmm, that sounded weird...)

If anyone gets the one above, I'll be surprised.

New question: What were the three causes of US torpedo failures in WWII?

Stubbornness, Incompetence and bad magnetic and contact exploder designs!

You got two of the three, quick--what was the third before someone beats you to it.

 
Most ships have keels that lie beneath the surface

On behalf of Halsey (I no longer play online)...

Faulty depth settings.....The torpedo tended to run some ten feet (3 meters) too deep for several reasons.

As Jimbuna said the faulty depth keeping of the things. Honestly can't believe I forgot about that.

Magnetic exploders, depth keeping (calculated for practice warheads which are much lighter than real warheads), contact detonator pins bending (fixed by switching out steel for aluminum), circle runners (mostly mk 18 due to cheap and quickly built versions, killed the Tang)

There you go, great timing, Jim.
So, you will have a SHO code shortly, Halsey, you are still on the field.

No and no. Nice try, though.

I swear, ain't nobody going to get that one without a lot of hints or a purebred pedigree on 60' s sitcoms.....
