It is too bad that none of the bombs will penetrate any of the BBs armors.

That will mess up someone's plans for invasion support or a counter invasion response.

Nice.

Burn them enough and BB's sink or spend a looong time in the shop heh, as we all know from the wars first port attack . But yeah, alas, 10ish bomb hits isn't usually enough to do much to most BB's.

I'd be tempted to hang around another day or two and continue pounding the port, but I imagine you've taken a big risk just conducting this raid. The next days raid will encounter massed opposition and possible threat to your carriers.

Cause enough fires and the damage control officer will flood the ship to try and put the fires out.....
