See item 4. Looks like a shell from the future

BOOM! The JFBs won't like this.

Although I would have expected to see more fires started from 16 nukes. Must be the small tactical ones....

BTW. I couldn't get the replay to produce the same results but I was also prompted to update the database when I loaded the file (I'll have to go back and see if I have the same Downfall release).

hi JohnD,
thx for the link, navweaps.com is a great bookmark.

& vonT,
thx for taking the time to play thru my savegame. i've just run the subsequent turn, 2 of 3 BB TFs scored a total of 11 'atomic' hits while bombarding Nagasaki/Sasebo. Both TFs were older BBs w/ 12" or 14" guns, so we can discount the 'shells from the future' idea! As you noted, the resulting damage just ain't what you'd suspect from an atomic shell - i suspect some kinda' glitch here.
The Downfall scenario's concept (that the atom-bombs fizzled, requiring the Allies to invade Japan) pointers me to believe that no atomic weapons are available.

best regards,
jM

Great ! jmalter,

Two USN battleships got better outcome that my all Battleline bombing at daytime Guadalcanal.. I got 2 USMC squads disabled after bombing with HIJMS YAMATO and another 4 Battleships. NO more hits, no more damages.
Obviously USN at ending stage of war is far ready than IJN with optimal and radar equipment, I know... But I think the damages are huge
best wishes

Ramón

Please attach the save where the combat happened.
Can't see why that happened as ABombs are part of air-combat.

What are those (bolded by me) hit reports? What was hit? Is this FOW, as attacker doesn't really know what suffers from nuclear blast in the neighbourhood?

hi michael,
the attached savegame includes my tasking orders (unlike my previous attached savegame, which was saved prior to tasking). When I executed this savegame, 2 of 3 Bombardment TFs got 'nukular' hits on Nagasaki/Sasebo, this is the 3rd consecutive turn where this has happened. I don't believe these are actual nuke attacks, i think they're a reporting glitch. I don't think they're due to the m6beta, i'd run previous turns in m6b w/ Bombardment TFs against Kurume w/o getting atomic hits.

Mebbe Nagasaki is a nuke-magnet! I'll run these TFs against another target to see if they continue to report atomic hits.

Ahhh. You mean I can't continually nuke all the Japanese ports and get a suntan?

Seriously, michaelm, you're doing a great job. This is customer service above and beyond the call of duty.

michaelm, you're a gem.

Bugger, I wanted the JFB to stay in fear of my ex Pearl harbor BB's!

They were actually hits to the aircraft factories in the base.
