I don't know if this is the correct place to bring this up, but I would have thought that with version 0.9.0+ this would no longer occur, but today just a few minutes ago I saw a pair of my torpedoes churning off into the sunset, well off the battle area. They were launched by my CVs torpedo planes.  Is this something that is never going to be fixed? Admittedly it doesn't seem to be a pesky problem, but it is definitely odd!  See attachment.

Yep, some months ago I watched one of my torps keep going until it went into an island, apparently in a tunnel, out the other side, and was still chugging along until I couldn't even see it move any longer, when the battle ended. 

 

Are they able to hit a target and cause damage after exceeding their specified range?

It's very hard to reproduce. But as they dont' to damage it's not that big of a deal...

They continue because of a desync between client and server. (e.g. when there is packet loss or some other short interruption in the connection).

In this case the server tries to tell the client that a torpedo ran out, but that message never arrived, so your client just keeps going with showing said torpedo on its long journey out of the map.

As the server is responsible for calculating damage and collisions, they just pass through everything without ever causing damage or hitting an island.

Just another bug (among many) as a result of server instabilities and high pings..
