It seems that maverick lethality is inconsistent against warships. I am talking about the bigger version of the missile (G model? I forgot which letter). Last night I shot 2 missiles against 2 separate osca II patrol boats at about the same time. Both hit the targets squarely. The first missile sank the boat, but the second one merely damaged it.
Don’t see anything wrong with this….after all HMS Sheffield was sunk by a single Exocet missile (that didn’t explode) while HMS Glamorgan survived a hit (that did explode).
Ships are pretty complex inside. Compartments and bulkheads. It would be tough to simulate a missile strike without some level of abstraction. Maybe Sinking Ship Simulator 20XX would put that effort in, but for a flight sim I think a die roll is sufficient.
Nice references, Tiffy.
