One of most puzzling weapons is the circular torpedo Motobomba.FFF. I have only 2 notes of successes: HMS Derwent and the famous Bari bombardment that spread mustrag gas from the city and where 17 ships were sunk(unknown which were sunk by motobomba). But there are several instances where they might have been employed and had success just the causes are put toward others like mines. One is the night sunking of HMS Pozarica in Bougie Harbour. Any Ideas?

It says here that HMS Derwent was damaged by a circling torpedo:

Also here the reason for the loss of HMS Pozarica is given as torpedo hits:

All the best
