So I am starting the WitP-AE Ironman 3 scenario. Pretty interesting scenario if I may say so...

AND THEN THE TYPICAL CODING ISSUES RESURFACE.

First in Pac War.
Then in UV.
Then in WitP.
Then in WitP-AE...

Come ON MATRIX...get it right! This crap should not happen in game since it would NEVER happen in real life!






AFTER ACTION REPORTS FOR Apr 18, 42
-------------------------------------
Afternoon Air attack on Yokosuka, at 113,61

Weather in hex: Partial cloud

Raid spotted at 5 NM, estimated altitude 1,300 feet.



Allied aircraft
B-25B Mitchell x 1


Japanese Ships
CVL Ryuho, Bomb hits 1


Japanese ground losses:
10 casualties reported
Squads: 0 destroyed, 0 disabled
Non Combat: 0 destroyed, 1 disabled
Engineers: 1 destroyed, 0 disabled



Port hits 4

Aircraft Attacking:
1 x B-25B Mitchell bombing from 1300 feet *
Port Attack: 4 x 500 lb GP Bomb

Black smoke over port.


Come ON..that is ridiculous. A single B-25 from the 37th Bomb Squadron bombing the the main Naval Station in Japan and hiting a carrier... without being shooting down...far away frome home base...this is absulutly silly!!!!!!!

This could never ever happend in real life...

But it wasn't a very big bomb. And it probably won't delay availabilty for Ryuho. Did you get the name of the pilot?

B25 not divebomber, Level Idiot bomber.
Never happen for real with bombsight on left eye only straight for hex 350x300 square mile I calculated.

You prove opposite? No.






Sorry, couldn´t resist.

Sounds realistic to me.

In Yokosuka, at least one bomb from the B-25 piloted by Lt. Edgar E. McElroy struck the nearly completed IJN aircraft carrier Ryūhō,[20] delaying her launch until November.

Not alone ship - so choosing target hard. Even so big target like CV. Bunch examples when pilots think that destroyer under their feet it battleship and merchant is fleet carrier.
You think thant not enough data point? Borked! Yes?
You No. Prove.

I believe in the Single Bomb Theory - it passed through one ship, changed course, and hit another.

@(*&$*&¨*# skip bombing shouldn't be allowed because there are to many hits.

how much have you played as allies? I rarely see ships in port hit by level bombers... BUT when you do... if this happened all the tie I could see a bitch wine and cheese session, but it is not my experience and I have 5 full pbem campeigns as allies under my wings...
or maybe you are right and everyone else is to stupid to understand >?
