dazoline II -> Collisions (5/28/2009 4:40:51 PM)

Hi,

Posted this in Andies AAR but it quickly became buried. I don't remember if any details surrounding collisions (other than with torpedos, bombs and shells) has been a topic before so here's some questions. My apologies if this has been mentioned.

I noticed a collision in the reports on March 19th.
"xAK Shikano Maru collides with xAK Sensan Maru at 55 , 102"

Both ships are mentioned after said collision and neither have heavy damage at the later time. So I'm guessing the damage is variable for a collision.

Is the damage rated as both system and float damage?
Is there potential to sink a ship from it?
Does a smaller ship take more damage when colliding with a large one?

Sort of, Engine damage is also in the mix.

Yes

Probably, but random chance is in there.

I am glad this is in collisions seemed quite common

This also raises the question of storm ( Hurricane ) loss and say random strange loss like Mutsu ???

Visibility and speed are factors. There is no "it just happened" loss, like Mutsu. There is a slight chance of "events" during repair, rearming, and loading.

Thanks for the answers Don.

Interesting all this sounds encouraging

Dare I ask is there a chance of collision during surface action ???

Yes (there are collisions during combat, not that you should dare).

Surface combat in a minefield is not a good idea, either.

For both side? Or does the owner of the minefield have an advantage?

Owner of the minefield always has an advantage, but still can get tagged when maneuvering during combat.

Good to know...thanks Don.
