|I am intrigued by the coordinated pack-attack strategy programmed into some Russian Anti-Ship Missiles. Has a similar strategy been evaluated for torpedo attacks? Especially against high-value targets like carriers.
For massed firepower subs could be converted from the limitations of the 100 year old tube launch technology in favor of 'vertical launch cells' that can hold torpedoes as well as cruise, anti-aircraft and and anti-ship missiles and mines. Instead of being limited to six or so shots and lengthy, laborious re-loading a VLS boat could ripple-fire it's entire payload in rapid succession. Something that would be wise for an enemy sub to do if in range of a CBG: ripple 30 fish and a dozen decoys, make a helluva lot of racket and confusion while you try to slink away...
How would a Carrier Battle Group deal with 30 simultaneous in-bound fish? Or 60?
