Thing is, I was reasonably sure it wasn't from Gothic.

There is exactly one ship in BFG (2 in the revised version I think?)* that can launch torpedoes out the sides.
 
These are the

  • Ork Hulk (essentially an Ork-held spacehulk), and those use in specialised launchers that only target the sides.
  • Planet Killer, a unique ship, which somehow is able to turn it's torp launchers 270 degrees.

Both of these are "post-battleships", meaning they are bigger than battleships. Chaos, Imperial, Eldar, Ork and Tau battleships are all limited to launching torpedoes only in the front arc.
Necrons just don't use torps.
 
For the BFG Revision project files, go here.
Oh, and thank you for the recommendation of BFK, I'm very fond of that book - I should have probably cut that bit out of the question.

 
* The revision-version of certain tyranid ships technically have launch tubes with a wider choice of angles, but they technically don't fire torpedoes, so meh.

 

 

Cardinal class Heavy cruiser from  battlefleet gothic magazine can fire torps f/p/s. 

 

Schismatic class light cruiser from BFG:R/BoN can also fire torpedos f/p/s

I'll have to look those up, since they aren't part of the BFG Core.
I suspect they are fan-made though.

So it is. I suspect it's a bug, but good find.

I've done a tiny bit of research on these, and it appears I must eat my own words.
Always a tasty treat.
The Schismatic class does indeed have torpedos that fire f/p/s.
Thank you for destroying my faith in the BFG:R.
