I used an IL-2T with the Type 45 torpedo and recorded the number of hits required to sink the ship. I also noted the number fo hits required to set the ship on fire.

Ship Sink On Fire
Russian Torpedo Boat G-5 1 n/a
Russian Hunter MO-4 2 n/a
Russian Armored Boat BBK-1/1942 1 n/a
Russian Armored Boat BBK-1/1943 1 n/a
Russian Destroyer Type 7 3 n/a
Russian Destroyer Type 7/1944 3 n/a
Russian 'Aurora' (Cruiser) 2-4 3
Russian 'Marat' (Battleship) 4-6 3-5
Russian 'Kirov' (Light Cruiser) 5 3
Russian 'Tashkent' (Destroyer) 2 n/a
Russian Trawler (Transport) 1 n/a
Russian Dry Cargo Ship 2 1
Russian Liquid Cargo Carrier 4 1
Russian Submarine 'Tshuka' 1 n/a
Italian torpedo boat MAS 501 1 n/a
German torpedo boat S-80 1 n/a
German MFP Type I 1 n/a
German MFP Type II 1 n/a
Roman. "Amiral Murgesku" 2 n/a
German M-boat 2 n/a
German 'Niobe' (AA Cruiser) 3 n/a
German "Illmarine" (Coastal Defence Ship) 6 4
German "Vainamoinen" (Coastal Defence Ship) 5 4
Tirpitz 10 7
German Type IIB Submarine 1 n/a
German Type VIIC Submarine 2 1

Some of the bigger ships have damage models that don't always require the same number of torpedo hits to sink. Iwill go back and test all the ships that needed multiple hits to sink to see if the number I reported is consitant. For now, tis is a good reference.

Hey thanks alot, this will definetly come in handy. I was always trying to sink the Tirpitz and I would put 4 trops into that thing and nothing. I am going to print this out.

Looks like the formatting got all screwed up when I posted this. Read the first line as Russian Torpedo Boat G-5, 1 torpedo hit required to sink the ship, n/a means the ship does not burn before sinking.

Russian 'Aurora' (Cruiser) takes from 2-4 hits to sink and caught fire after teh third torpedo hit.

the he 111 takes less. I sank tirpitz with 4. while as stated, 4 from il2 has little effect. good stuff to know though.

With 4 torpedoes? Really?
Not 4 loads of torpedoes? (8)Maybe the Tirpitz feels some sort of solidarity for the German torpedo and will die easier.....

On average, you will forget 80% of everything you read today, within 24 hours.

Torps are nice but 4 hvars in the right spot will bring just about anything down

Yeah. Also 2 SC500s can sink one of the German Coastal Defence Ships or either of the Cargo Ships, sometimes destroyers too if you hit them right.

A pair of 2500's will sink anything. http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/images/smiley/784.gif
