According to this source (http://www.historynet.com/type-95-torpedo-the-long-lance-of-japans-submarine-fleet.htm), and a few others, the 21" Type 95 Mark 2, introduced in 1944, had a warhead of 1,213 lbs, which is larger than that of the 24" Type 93 "Long Lance" at 1,080 lbs. There was also a different version introduced into service in 1942. The torpedo had a significantly smaller range than the "Long Lance," at about 6,000 yds. at 49-51 knots. Given that I-201 and number of other Japanese submarines were armed with these torpedoes and 21" tubes, I think it would be quite reasonable to give them an SA like Long Lance Torpedoes which would have their torpedoes deal three points of damage per hit. This would, of course, require an increase in cost and a change in range for the affected submarines. I would like to make a custom card for the I-201 with this torpedo, and I would really appreciate opinions on how the stats should look. Thanks.
