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?

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.

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.

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