Torpedo Salvos are fired using the right mouse button. You begin your mission with ammunition for three such salvos, additional ammunition can be collected by destroying torpedo transports. Your ship can carry enough ammunition for up to nine salvos, any extra ammunition is lost.
Torpedo salvos can be used in several ways to gain a tactical advantage over your enemies. A single salvo at close range can be used to destroy or seriously damage capital ships, such as carriers or bombers. A salvo fired from further away can be used to clear out several smaller enemies.
Some pilots use several salvos fired in close succession. The resulting wave of destruction is costly, but can reduce even larger swarms of enemy craft to space debris.
