    Help with AP Bombers

    My best results are when I approach the ship from bow or stern. Set-up the attack run and click to get an aiming reticule. Approach the ship and drop the bomb when center of cross-hair is over the bow or first turret of a ship. The ship should sail forward and the bomb should land near the center of the ship, preferably just behind the superstructure and over the citadel. "Boom" - citadel hit, if all goes well. :-) The above assumes a cruiser or battleship is the target. AP bombs tend to over-penetrate DD's. They are effective on CV's, though. Gotta have a steady hand and be able to adjust your aim to account for a ship doing a turn (if the target is maneuvering).

    Since we have carriers

    We had the German version of them in the Operation Dynamo scenario whereby a flotilla of DD's would attempt to rescue survivors on the beaches of Dunkirk. That operation is "retired", as of this writing. https://wiki.wargaming.net/en/Ship:Operation_Dynamo

    CVs against DDs

    Yeah. The Tirpitz came into its' own with the 1 vs. 1 Ranked battles. :-) I did sink a few of them though, with a Chapayev and a Cossack. So, if they make a mistake that is big enough.... :-) But, it took 190 battles to rank out (achieve 40 wins), so one can be sure that I rotated through a variety of ships and that I didn't win every time. :-)

    WEB COMIC SERIES Iron & Blood

    I'm all caught up to the latest page. I figured out how to use the webpage as a bookmark for the page of the comic that I viewed last. Good story. I'm looking forward to future episodes. :-)

    CVs against DDs

    The maps are less than 30 km by 30 km. Planes have fuel for hundreds of miles in their tanks. Fuel is not a criteria, just as ships don't run out of fuel. In the RTS days, fighter ammunition was an item that a CV player had to keep an eye on. Getting planes re-armed in order for them to have ammo for dogfights or to provide cover for friendly ships was a logistical concern. Then along comes the "re-work". Maps are too small to worry about fuel. The CV's are flying "close air support" missions instead of long-range strike missions.

    CVs against DDs

    I'm not the best player. But, since you're curious and since I have a 1 vs. 1 Ranked Battle final statistics screen shot handy. I'm enclosing it. Others, in different posts, have mentioned websites that gather statistics and publish them for people to sort through and do research with. DD's did fairly well, in my opinion, versus CV's. Did they win all the time? No. Did they lose all the time? No. I'll speak just from a CV perspective for the moment. One of my opponents went to the center of the capture zones and set a smokescreen. They hid well enough in it to dodge ordnance and win the match on points before I could sail from the edge of the map and contest the zones. (I learned from that experience.) Other DD's I had to work hard to "sniff 'em out" with my CV planes because they took alternate routes in an attempt to avoid detection. Action became desperate for them once I found them, but the good ones were able to dodge a lot of ordnance and win. One was memorable for charging my CV and sinking me with torpedoes before I could sink them. A different one was memorable for charging my Graf Zeppelin and being sunk by secondary gunfire from over 5 km away. Anyway, my point is that in a 1 vs. 1 situation, the DD has a fighting chance. In a team vs. team situation, DD's are serious threats to CV's and should not be underestimated. Their detection radius vs. aircraft is favorable for the DD, often a CV's planes have to "stumble upon" a DD and then circle around. I had to use "detected" indications to triangulate on one DD's position in a 1 vs. 1 match, for example. Hope that helps. :-)

    Thanks for the laughs, O.P. :-D

    FINAL WEEK - Save USS Batfish

    Still waiting on my patch to arrive in my port's patch-locker. Glad to contribute to the rescue & restoration of a historic vessel, though.
