Torpedo issues

The USN Submariners had a notoriously bad time in the first half of WW2 with "duds." These weapons are extremely complicated and malfunctions plagued not only the IJN and USN, but also the Germans, esp during WW1.

During WW2, German U-boaters disabled the tricky magnetic detonators, in favor of contact fuse. And used contact approach solutions to increase explosion rates.

The whole topic is a very interesting one. Well documented in the attached article.
