Posted this in here as I think it could lead to some funny dits. BBC News - HMS Argyll navy torpedo fired into Devonport wharf I would believe that some touch drills were done a little too enthusiastically for this to happen. I have seen a Lynx drop a TVT during touch drills. By the time the cab was back on board I had a punch bag rigged up as a TVT in the hangar. It had the nose cap, parachute and other bits on it to look real. Hanging from the hangar gantry with the parachute fastened to railing behind it it looked quite good. The observer thought otherwise and was heard to mutter something under his breath at me.
