Torpedo hitting a turret?

I noticed after a game in my shima that I had finished a campaign mission to take out turrets. Which was odd, since I didn't fire my guns in that match.

Looking at the details, it turns out my single torp that hit the enemy Salem took out a turret and an AA gun....

 

How is this possible? :Smile_amazed:

Damage to the hull flooding the magazine for that turret.

The blast-radius of torps is massive, it's how they manage to dev-strike magazines despite being on the waterline and thus not impacting hull near to magazines.

I had a situation that my torp destroyed permanently one BB turret. This means he had detonation flag, so he didn't detonate, just the turret. It's very rare imo.

The barbette of the turret actualy goes under the waterline, atleast on a battleship. Dont know what it looks like on Des Moines since the guns are autoloaders, or were. But could be that all ships have barbettes in the game.
