I was in a battle in my Furutaka and fired a round of torpedoes when suddenly a teammate goes steaming by in the opposite direction not 30ft away and all I have time to think is "Oh Carp" when all of my torps go straight into the side of him and ... vanish?

 

They did not appear on the other side of him so all I can figure is the warheads had not armed yet and so they must have impacted on his hull and were destroyed. 

 

A quick search on the wiki confirms there is an arming time but does not say how long it is. All I can say is that it's a little longer than the blink of an eye. 

 

Anyway, cool that they implemented that.This time it saved my bacon.Thank you WG.

Must be somewhere between the end of the launcher and 100ft because I've launched on ships from barely 2 ship widths away and they detonated.

I've seen that there is an "arming time", but is it safe to assume that time varies between different ships/torpedoes?

I believe I was watching a Jingles video and he commented that the arming distance was to the end of the green arc that appears when you're aiming torps.  So if a ship is inside that arc, torps will impact but not explode.
