if 4x He 111 get through to the attack phase, how many torpedo dice can be thrown using the "Comb Attack" ability?

I would read that as 3 for the first plane and 4 for each of the other planes for a total of 15 torpedo dice.

I'd read that the same as wolfpack. No matter how many make it through you only get +1 per plane. No matter how many subs with wolfpack you have you only ever get +1.

Yep. áThat's the way I interpret it.

Plane 1 3 dice
Plane 2 ability triggered, so 4 dice.
Plane 3 ability triggered by either plane so 4 dice
Plane 4 4 dice as well

4x3+3=15

My follow on question is if its 4 111s the first one doesnt get any bonus if it is the first plane to make a torp attack right? or does it since there are others also making attacks?

They have it right. The first plane "only" gets three dice.

I cannot remember why we went with Comb Attack versus "Golden Comb" but I think it was because it allowed the SA to be reused across nations if possible.

"Comb" is from the parallel torpedo attacks that went through the formation like a comb through hair.

Also, the same SA never stacks with itself, even when on other units. (2 CV's can't give "Expert Bomber" to the same unit giving a +2 dice attack.)
