I keep getting 'missed' reports when I go for the under the keel shots. They are not missing, as they cause fires and such. Starting to seem that a very high % of the ones that do get detonated by magnetics are reported as misses.
Anyone else getting this?
I am talking zero winds, 400 meters from target, set 1 meter below the reported draft of the ship (from the recog manual).
Any thoughts or suggestions?

The crew says "Torpedo missed sir" because they think it exploded and didn't hit the ship, even though it did.

Yes, I get this too and it's a dumb little bug. If the torpedo causes damage to a ship then it didn't miss.

Figured as much, was just gettign concerned that my torp depth was not ideal. How deep do you people run them under the draft depth?

1-2 meters. This happens all the time. I assumed the weapons officer was listening for the sound of it hitting before exploding. He told me that last night, when I had two fish fired at a battleship.
