I set up a game last night and had King George V attacked by 8 Vals with 250kg bombs, and 8 Kates with Torpedoes. All 8 bombs hit home as did 6 out of the 8 torps, and she just kept on going !!!! Man that's tough.

they certainly are... after someone tried the 5000kg. bomb from a PE8 on a carrier and said it didn't sink, i had to try it for myself...

the carrier will sink by a direct hit of a 5000 or 2000 kg. bomb or needs about 7 torps in it to go own

the BB's also need a good 8 torps and a couple of bombs for good measure..

see how many they take in my Pearl mission

That is a funny looking aircraft carrier.

The Yamato took over 10 1000lb bomb hits, plus rockets and strafing, and 9 torpedos and was still afloat until "several" more torps hit her and she went under. The Combinedfleet.com action report loses track after 7 specific bomb hits, but says on a couple different time points that "bombs" made a shambles of such and such".

BBs are tough.
