Seems a funny place to be firing torpedo's, but in the copy of ' Warships ' I coincidentally picked up today there's HMS Sutherland testing her onboard torpedo launcher ( it fires through the hangar side from a torpedo magazine on the Type 23's ) then picking up the non-running torpedo afterwards, seems they could be doing this sort of thing rather than let off a live running job then see if it ends up In Fowey or the Scillies ! :)
