When your aircraft perform a Port Attack mission, they have a chance to hit disbanded ships in the port. Does the same ever happen when your ships perform a Bombardment mission that hits a port with enemy ships disbanded in the port? Since the disbanded ships are anchored, they present a stationary target. Shouldn't they be hit by bombardemnt as well, at least sometimes?




Jorge_Stanbury -> RE: Port bombardment and anchored ships (8/16/2018 6:06:16 PM)

anchored ships get hit from time to time




HansBolter -> RE: Port bombardment and anchored ships (8/16/2018 8:06:43 PM)

Absolutely




obvert -> RE: Port bombardment and anchored ships (8/16/2018 8:16:25 PM)

Yep, had it happen a few turns ago.




LeeChard -> RE: Port bombardment and anchored ships (8/17/2018 2:02:01 PM)

The Japanese AI fleet hit me and did considerable damage to me one time but I think usually the damage
is spread over port facilities,men and supply.




Lokasenna -> RE: Port bombardment and anchored ships (8/17/2018 4:14:17 PM)

It depends on the number of ships in the port, and the size of the port. And luck.

Hits from bombardment TFs are usually rare.




Yaab -> RE: Port bombardment and anchored ships (8/18/2018 8:08:28 AM)

Thanks! I never paid attention to this issue until very recently.

Lowpe, you must have had a very good D/L on that base to get that many hits on ships in port!
