Some day I way shooting at a liquid cargo ship with a Beaufighter and I noticed, that the lifeboats at the back of the ship were damaged. However no matter how long I was shooting at the ship, I couldn't make any more visible damage. No smoke, no scars, nothing.

So I am curious - can a freight ship in Il-2 be sunk by 20mm guns only?

You can just about sink a fishing boat with a Baufighter.

even landing craft seem immune to gunfire

this is one case where the difficulty setting Unrealistic ammo....is actually more realistic....

you can then sink small boats with guns and AP rockets can sink bigger ships

untrue! In planes with .50 caliber and up they go down rather easily.

You can kill those evil pinja infested fishing boats with 20mm fire

and the smallest landing craft with mg fire

torpedo boats (some) with 37mm fire

but not tankers or cargo ships

be sure http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/16x16_smiley-happy.gif

you'd think that 37 would create a pucker factor of 10 on the decks at least
