Paddleship Pummel (Closed)

Another small tip on the component layout of the shell you use, Fox: try put Nose cone first, solid/sabot second, fuse next, only then the payload. Your shell would then be like 3GP, HE, pendepth, comp head. It gives a speed boost, resulting in slightly more AP and a bump in kinetic damage.

As for torps: turret-mounted is the way to go, as well as high speed. Luckily, the game shows drag per component. Torp props have lower drag than the fins so the fins should go way in the back, but without guidance you dont need those fins anyway. Unless you use 1turn, but when shot from a turret, I dont think you'd even need the 1turn anyway. If you plan on magnets, you want to put them in the front so that the torpedo tip will point towards the target, the torp prop thrust will make the torp then make a turn. But for a fast torp, dont put them in the very front: even a fuel tank has less drag than a magnet!

I once spent a whole evening on just 1 torpedo design, which I ended up refining further, later on. It was used in SE:LC HMS Belfast, and was the sole reason Belfast actually won a round. Tongue

In all honesty, I havent even started to build for this tournament yet... missing an idea to build on. :/
