Ok i have the ship wallpaper and i was about to shut off my com when i looked at the carreir. That big gap at the front that holds up tip of the Flight Deck, and i was think Well if i go in with a well aimed rocket strike or kamkazie hit shouldnt that destroy or pretty much cripple it or atleast take down the flight deck?

I doubt it would in the game unless the damage was repairable.

so your saying if i go in with a rocket strike and hit below on to the flight deck it would stay intact 0 damagae what so ever.

If the devs wanted to cool with details, they could say that both sides carriers are more apt to explode catastrophically late war. Japan's carriers, due to lack of fuel, were frequently forced to use crude oil straight out of the Dutch Indies. The American carriers were frequently packed beyond safety limits with bombs, torpedoes, and general explosives due to the time they would operating away from friendly resupply.

:rolleyes: No, I'm saying that it wouldn't cripple the CV( if thats all it took who would want to play as a CV?), especially with rockets, A 2000# bomb, well maybe that should but I have a feeling that its not going to. Maybe this is one of those things that will be cleared up for us pre-release:nut: .

On the subject of rockets, remember this game takes place in WW2 and these are not missiles. They wouldn't do much to an armoured ship(they probably would do little more than scratch the paint on a CA).

but i mean going in under the armor where the poles hold up the tip of the CV.

:rolleyes: Yes I know and I'm telling you that I seriously doubt they would put that into the game, if they did nobody would ever take that CV(or want to play any map its on). Also I think that would just make people ram bombers into the nose of it. Why waste resources to sink a cv if you can disable it with one plane?

Thats probably whats going to happen if you hit it with rockets then, givin they are far less powerfull than a 1000# bomb.
