not necessarily the case that a HB raid will cause constant direct hits on small vessels; debris, shrapnel, etc. can damage such small crafts considerably, too. However, how many small crafts per se are being sunk by direct hits? Any indication in the combat report files or the messages?

Over past few turns I've had Forts out of Espiritu Santo successfully bombing ships in Tulagi, some as high as 17000ft. Three I lost in port attacks but three including a very small AMc from (17000), a DD (17000), and a CA (7000), were at sea. I thought the accuracy of HB attacking ships had been reduced or is it a house rule that is used to restrict HB attacking ships?
No code changes have been introduced.
Many PBEM players demand a HR limiting operational use of HB against ships. Not everyone agrees with that approach.
Four sunk in port attack, all at Tulagi, AMC, AG, AMc and anther one in a TF not docked as was the CA hit last turn. Its the later two at sea and the earlier DD hit at sea that is the problem. I can live with it against the AI.
That's what I thought but I'm playing the AI so I'll just have to put up with it for the time being, but will send some better fighters. Once I've sorted his carriers out in my current op I'll go and blat him.
