i was wondering if maybe in the next patch they could add visual damage to the ships when you hit em with bombs. i understand maybe the real ones didn't sink with just one bomb, but could we at least have holes and pieces of them breaking off or such? cause it would be really great to know you're actually doing something to a ship when you hit it, even if it didn't sink.

You can see damage to at least some of the ships. I have seen 3 or 4 levels of damage to the Russian battleship Marat. Each succesive torpedo hit adds more holes, blackened areas, etc. I have also destroyed one of the AA guns on the German type VII sub. Keep in mind that the damage doesn't always appear where you hit the ship. I've seen torpedo hits on the starboard side of the Marat cause holes in the port side!

The damage is difficult to see from the air. I usually record the action and am able to see the damage while playing back the track.
