How do you actually do a bombardment? I mean apart from the obvious: setting the TF to bombardment. Do you need to do anything else? My BB in their Bombardment TF's seem to be floating around not doing much while the Amphib TF are getting slaughtered.

Thanks

Give the TF the Bombardment mission and destination of the target hex.
It arrives and bombards, and then reverts to a Surface mission.

A BB in an invasion force fires at enemy defenses initially, and then at the enemy defenses whenever they fire at the invading forces. They are also useful for soaking up some of the attacker's firepower.

Did you check ammo?  After a bombardment run or two, your BB's main guns are dry.
And as the previous post indicated... a BB that is part of the Amphibious TF will draw fire from the Coastal Defense and save your transports. They will also fire back.
The BB in a Bombardment TF stops doing anything after the bombardment run (actually it can chase surface ships).

I see . After the Bombardment TF has arrived, you need to place its ships into your Amphibious TF so that thye can help protect the transports. Thanks
