You have to crew the torpedo compartment (fore or aft). Depending on your realism setting, that process can take some time. Also, if you're using the H.sie's (or is it Stiebler's ), you can't reload in rough seas. But in stock SH III or SH III + GWX that should work.


Regards,


Reed

With H.sie not only you cannot in rough speed, but you must also slow down to Ahead slow or lower while remaining on the surface.

The process lasts between 1-2 hours. If caught with your pants down while reloading by an air patrol, forget crash diving or speeding up; you are screwed. So, I strongly recommend doing this only late at night.

And even if you have auto reloading on you have to click and drag the eternal torpedo to the a reserve slot for them to start moving it.

Yep, that's right, I had forgotten about the slow speed while reloading, thanks!
