View Full Version : New damage Model for ships with AEP?

I am developing a campaign for the IL-2T torpedo bomber and my friend and I tested one of my missions last night. We both hit the same freighter with a torpedo, but it did not sink. I hit the bow and he hit the stern. Before AEP a freighter would always sink with 2 torpedo hits. Is there a new DM for ships or torpedoes?

Is the damage from torpedoes variable? Will a ship sometimes sink from 1 torpedo, sometimes from 2 torpedoes and sometimes from 3 torpedoes?

I want to know as I may need to go back and test all of my missions again.

Thank you.

Apparently they light on fire now too...so I think they did some upgrading! http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/infopop/emoticons/icon_biggrin.gif

yep they do light up http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/infopop/emoticons/icon_smile.gif yesterday i dropped a 1600pc right into the battleship marat, and not only did it turn the front of the ship into a wreckage, the bridge also caught on fire, it was such an amazing sight i forgot to look ahead and crashed my stuka into a mountain.

My question is, is it more difficult now to sink ships than before? Do they require more hits or will it vary from mission to mission? One torpedo this mission and two or three the next for the same ship?

This is important for mission objectives as I need to know how many planes to use to attack each type of ship and still have a reasonable chance of success.

Well, Tirpiz needs more than 8 torpedo hits http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/infopop/emoticons/icon_biggrin.gif

Go look at the two ship attack tracks that came with AEP. Topmast and Marat are in the names. maybe it depends on where you hit? I wonder if some countries had smaller warheads on airplane torpedoes too?
