Not quite. They fire at the torpedo GCD (about 1.5 seconds). You don't fire off five torpedoes simultaneously.

Unfortunately, most of it's utility is now destroyed since it was decoupled from projectile weapons doffs. It has a decent dot, but for the most part it can be, and is, outperformed by almost every other torpedo out there. The only time I'd recommend using it would be to get the Omega 2-piece ability if you (for some reason I can't fathom) would rather not use the KCB.
