    Jet Planes vs Installation Bosses

    I didn't find any discussion about this between the release of jet planes until now. At least, on Himeuta, Wikia, or the Kancollewiki. It's possible I might have overlooked it and failed lurking class.

    So, uh, these jet planes function like fighter bombers, and because of gameplay mechanic (that doesn't make much sense), CVs with dive bombers cannot target installation bosses.

    Does that include opening airstrikes for jet planes? I just did 3-5 for that New Years questline, and, uh... my jet planes attacked Hoppou during the jet opening phase. For 1 damage, sure, but they still attacked Hoppou (Shoukaku and Zuikaku did not during the shelling phase, which makes sense. Not really, but yeah).

    Here, the replay. Download it and play it using this link. Should be obvious, but it's node F.

    isnt the reason that only Torpedo Bombers can attack Instalations because the japanese navy only ever equiped the anti-instalation bombs onto torpedo bombers Planes that became torpedo bombers in Kancolle

    dont remember where i heard it though

    @Fazel Dive bombers can damage installations in opening but not shelling. Torpedo bombers are the opposite.

    @Adraste Hmm, assuming it's true, why did they turn into torp bombers when something like anti-installation bombs are more of a dive bomber's role? Because of the success of torp bombers whereas the disappointment of dive bombers? Either way, interesting.

    @Leyana Okay, yeah. That was something I never knew. Thank you.

    @Fazel the torpedo bombers could carry a 800kg bomb load, vs the 500kg a suisei or 250kg a val could carry.
