    Imparting spin on torpedo

    Maybe of use in torpedo launchers

    Hmmm. perhaps if the weapon had no flutes, but with stabilization fins, as soon as they enter the water they'll arrest the spin unless you have them canted as well. I already went into this in detail a lot, but in general, as torps run on the surface, only two of the four fins are engaging water. If you have canted fins, they'll act as a rudder, giving a long arc, which is not desirable.

    Straight fins and a solid, straight launch is all you need....
