Torpedoes used to be very simple when they first saw widespread use, often only going on heat or sound sensors, and if the torpedo missed it's initial target, there was a chance of it turning around and picking up on the sound/heat of it's launching point. Happened to submarines a lot during WW2, and to surface ships as well in WW1.

Who knows, 2 years later another ship torpedoed themself.
1944: 74 men died when the US Submarine Tang (SS-306) accidentally torpedoed itself during a combat patrol off the coast of Taiwan.

Maybe they turned the torpedo rear end forward and fired... so the propeller motor would swim back at the ship and detonate...

But that's kinda retarded..
