Okay I do not know much about torpedo bombers during the second world war. I know a few types being the British Fairey Swordfish which delivered the paralyzing hit to the Bismarck and the American SBD destroyer which played a role in midway. What I want to ask is this, were torpedo bombers intentionally slow? I understand that slow aircraft were good in the dive bomber/ground attack role since when going in at a angle they need to sight their target, but was it necessary for a torpedo bomber? Slower speed can a play a role in stabilizing the aircraft but was it possible for there to be a land based aircraft that could go at fast speeds and delivers aerial torpedoes to ships? Wouldn't launching an aerial torpedo really be no harder from a fast aircraft than that of a slow aircraft since the ship is in sight and is a still target for a plane flying toward it? Would a fast aircraft be at an advantage since it could launch the torpedo and escape with a lower chance of it being shot down or would the faster speed lower the accuracy of the aerial torpedo?
