Sometimes tankers die hard

The US sub is diving & a Japanese Destroyer has turned to engage. Depending on how fast the sub can work out a firing solution & if any tubes are still loaded, they could try a "down the throat shot". This required two torpedos minimum. The two or more are launched down the track of the oncoming destroyer with basically a zero bearing rate. The spread of torpedos will cause the destroyer to turn if sighted, but by then at least one would hit due to the destroyer turning going across the spread.
