    April 1940 Germany discovered their magnetic torpedo detonators would not function properly north of the Arctic Circle. Several Allied ships got torpedoed without warhead detonation during that month.

    I should have added more detail. I meant torpedoes that exploded.

    What is the most torpedoes that ever hit a warship, and exploded, and the ship still made it home?
