    Definitely brings up a problem.

    Take AP bombs which are heavily specialized for BBs but markedly worse for Cruisers and DDs?
    Take regular HE bombs which work on everything as well as land fires. You just don't get that mega alpha strike on a BB.

    For as much as BBs get played over everything else at NA server, you still have some Cruisers and lots of DDs. Having bombs that are effective against, say, 1/3 or 1/4 of the enemy team is kind of weird. But then again, CVs already like nuking BBs to begin with. If AP bombs make that easier, well, another tool to use.

    @M.A.Mitscher I see it more as a CA/BB killer.

    @M.A.Mitscher I'm actually wondering if the turtle back is going to make AP bombs more like to citpen German BB's.

    What about these AP bombs max penetration? How thick armor can shatter them? I know most of deck&supertructure is not heavy armored, but some area has heavy armor (like turret sloped front). Those more then 350mm amor have to be shatter these bombs, but can't find the penetration value. Their falling distance is stable (?) therefore have to be a single penetration value.

    @Mobius listed them here: it's 250mm for the 1000lb AP bomb and 320mm for the 1600lb AP one

    Rangers nuking Fuso's is going to be a reality. Then there's also Saipan's Mega DB unit.
