S! All!

I wanted to make a scripted DF map (W) two
battleships. Does anyone know how many fish you have to put into a battle ship for her to go down?

Thank you in Advance,

Depends where you hit it. But if you're talking Tirpitz, then 6 - 10 http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/infopop/emoticons/icon_frown.gif

Any prove to that/those claim(s) Zeus-cat ?

10 Torps for Tirpitz - eh ? - Is that the only thing that hit it ?

LOL ROFLMAO Its worse even it depends WHERE you hit the Tirpitz e.g. hehe

But that's in-game for the real-deal (its a nice link):

Well my squadron did a lot of testing here and we got it to what "Zeus-cat" has there too, so i would say thats a pretty good rule to go by

Best Regards

lil_labbit,

I created a mission in the FMB where I put one ship on the map and used an IL-2 to torpedo it. I set unlimited ammo and invulnerable and just kept putting torpedoes into the ship one at a time until it sunk. Once I sunk the ship, I closed the mission and switched ships and then repeated the process.

It took me several hours to do every ship in the game. I repeated several ships to see if the results were consistant. The ships that went down in one hit seemed to always go down in one hit. On the ships that took multiple hits the results varied a little. As stated, bow and stern hits were the least effective and sometimes seemed to do almost no damage in terms of sinking the ship. The damage models vary by ship. The larger ships have fairly complex damage models and actually sink differently depending on where the torpedoes hit. Sometimes they sink bow first, other times they sink stern first.

Take my data as a good estimate of what it takes to sink a ship, not a guarantee. I did all of this as research for my IL-2T campaign. I should have that done in another 3-4 weeks.

I have 5 readme files compiled for my campaign and one of them contains the torpedo damage data shown above.
