If you drop a torpedo and then turn away in order to avoid flak or gun fire from the ship, is there a view you can use to watch the torpedo as it makes it's way toward the target?

In-game or real life?

Use Ctrl + F2, until you get a view of the enemy ship you launched the Torp at. Slew the angle of view around until you are looking back toward the oncoming torp.

Then hope you don't crash while your admiring your handy work. LOL

There is no "warhead view" for tracking released bombs/torpedoes. However the torp's wake is clearly visible, so you can either position your plane and watch from the cockpit or use an external view.

pressing f7 will padlock the external view to the nearest ground object, which will be the boat you're aiming for if you just let go and are flying over it...

just don't forget who is in the pilot seat whilst admiring your bomb/torp drop and explosion http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_biggrin.gif

Only if it's a carrier...no F2 views for other ship types.

Are you sure? While viewing a ntrk I used the Ctrl F2 to view destroyers that we had attacked.

Hmm, maybe it just works with tracks.

Ctrl F2 will cycle through enemy aircraft, carriers and static cameras - maybe there was a static camera near the destroyers in your mission.
