Pfft, you want a real challenge, try attacking the Tirpitz with nothing but guns in an I-16.

You might be able to do that in the game but it's totally unrealistic. No aircraft canon could put a battleship out of action, esp. ONE a/c. A 75 or 88mm could do some damage but could not disable it. The planes that could carry those weapons would run out of ammo and probably be destroyed before they ran out. I doubt if even those calibers would penetrate turret armor. Torpedoes, bombs, 14-16 inch guns, maybe a plethora of 8"-er might finally put her down but planes? Pthtt.

Just my opinion, of course. Nothing personal.

the 262 killing the Tirpitz is tough, the Easy solution would be to take a Mustang III with the 4, 50's its well documented that they could penetrate 20" armor http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_biggrin.gif

No, correct procedure is same for killing Tiger tanks...skip the bullets to penetrate the softer armor underneath, in this case, skip the bullets off the different thermal layers under the water to penetrate the postage stamp sized achilles heal.

Actually, what physical item prevents bullets from traveling down the exhaust stack, penetrating the boilers, causing fuel oil explosions and eventual destruction of the ship?

Cuda, I'd like to know your source for a .50 cal. MG round penetrating 20" of armor. That doesn't sound right at all to me.

A quick web search of Armor piercing MGs yielded the following Wikipedia entry. Notice the energy & AP stats below.

"The KPV heavy machine gun is a Soviet designed 14.5×114 mm-caliber heavy machine gun, which first entered service as an infantry weapon (designated PKP) in 1949. It was later redesigned for anti-aircraft use,...Its size and power made it a useful light anti-armour weapon on the BTR series of vehicles and BRDM-2 scout car. The version for use in armoured vehicles is called the KPVT (tankoviy, 'tank').

Mechanics
The development of the machine gun began in 1944. The cartridge can be used with HEIT or API bullets, and they have approximately twice the energy as a normal 12.7 mm (.50 BMG) projectile. (snip)

Ammunition
B-32 - Armor-piercing incendiary full metal jacket round with a tungsten-carbide core. Projectile weight is 64.4 g and muzzle velocity is 976 m/s. Armour penetration at 500 m is 32 mm of RHA at 0 degrees." (end of article)

On my ruler, 300mm = about 12 inches. So I don't think a .50 cal. MG can go through 20" of armor.

Maybe you have different info? Respectfully, OneMug
