How to make the bow of your ship torpedo proof? (Closed)
I have a fairly decent AC/BS hybrid, but due to the large bow area, I tend to take a ton of damage from torpedoes. I have experimented, and I have tried to double hull my ship or build sacrificial pieces, but nothing seems to make much of a difference. Ultimately, a few torpedo bombers totally ruin my hydrodynamics, and seems to take a lot of my HP. I have heard that there are ways to improve this. Please help!

To get rid if planes buy the spy1 radar and buy the gun for that and for subs place mines at the front of your boat and release them but dont go forwad becuase they can become a enemy to u too do reverse and keep placing

Try increasing the maneuverabilty of your ship. I know that is not your direct answer but I think the most you can do for that is increase the tier of armour.
Answer from: Zan
If you ONLY get attacked by torpedo bombers, the best thing to do would be using 600mm lightweight armor (using a small carrier), or using 400 3*2*1 armor (using a medium or large carrier to keep in the size limit) on the hull, and have 2 layers to have even more armor.

There's only one solution if you want to maintain a realistic enough look and hull design, and thus don't want to make a super barge (like me) or something:
The first option is a skinny bow, preferably quite long. These would be between 1-3 blocks wide. This is quite self explanatory really, buy the rip-off skeleton (100K resources) if you don't understand.
The second option, simply, is armor. When you have 7000 toughness (and thus weigh 300K tons), your only threat is multiple mines, and all manner of shells, torpedoes, and bombs will be brushed aside. The problem is, you might have to make a super barge or something to get a toughness and weight that high and maintain 194.4 knot speed

If you Often face torpedoes from planes and ships, perhaps you could make a catamaran. the torpedoes smply go between the two hulls. It also is (if you build it right) faster and more agile then a traditional monohull vessel.
