..in PF to sink a carrier?? If not, no point of using torpedo and dive fighter/bombers...I hope it would be possible to sink a carrier...we could start with 2 vs 2 carriers in coops and victorious would be the side which would suceed to sink both carriers? Isnt that more historical approach to the game (also bringing more fun into the sim)? I heard here that ships would be (maybe) without DM..undestroyable..is that right?..if this is the case Im http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/images/smiley/16x16_smiley-sad.gif

Of course we will be able to sink the carriers. I just hope we can see the planes sliding off the deck when they're going down http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/images/smiley/59.gif

As to ships not having a damage model.. must have been a no-know who said that.. It will obviously not be as advanced as for the aircraft but it will be there.. with the ability to kill the gun crews http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/infopop/emoticons/icon_wink.gif

And.. we can already damage and sink ships in FB.

Where did you get that idea?
I don´t think they will be easy to sink (ej. a couple of 500 pnd and voila...) But I asume that they will be sinkable, if they recive the apropiate amount of damage....

The ships will not have a complex DM like the planes, but that doesn´t mean that they will have no DM at all....

For what we know, fires will not spread, there will be no special areas with DM caracteristics like ammo dumps or fuel tanks, or that kind of stuff, nor rudder damage.

Aside of that we don´t know how will the ships DM work. But they will sure be sinkable...

Ships are ALREADY sinkable in FB and have a modest damage model. I set up a battle for the hell of it between Marat, Tirpitz and some escort ships. By the end of the battle the Tirpitz was on fire (but still operational) and the right side was rather beaten up, it seemed.

Would be very cool to create single missions with moving carriers... Somebody told that it's not gonna be possible but looks so easy... Well, if they can move in coop missions, why not in single too...?
