The Torpedo Launcher is a major decrease in usefulness from the Rocket Launcher. Accuracy is down in both modes. While firing time is down in Snap mode (maybe just enough to get off a second snapshot for a soldier with 80 TUs!), it's up in Aimed mode. Power on the Small torpedo is up, but power on the Large Torpedo is down, to the point where they're nearly identical. Phosphor Torpedoes are a step back from Incendiary Rockets, and to boot, Phosphor works poorly underwater, making the use of the Phosphor Torpedo questionable. However, the biggest weakness is the underwater only restriction, meaning that it can't be used in early terror sites as a knockout punch against Terror Units.
