I don't agree that DB should be buffed. It's good that we don't have DB. But we
should have the best TB. There should be some form of advantage to it specific to
RN; I'm not sure what.
I sank a Montana the other day with Swordfish. Repeated attacks. It took four waves
of four (i.e 16 planes); he was already wounded on SD but had full bulge either way.
I felt pretty good about actually being able to sink BB5 with Swordies; but it was
always a foregone conclusion because we had already lost the game by the time we
was close enough for me to reliably do that. It's just not really a feasible thing.
The problem I think is AA. AA just murders Swordfish like there's no tomorrow (I don't
mean AAW) and will kill Barracudas. Perhaps I'm just being stupid because I don't
have 3x Barracuda yet. TB and DB have to go through the same layers of enemy
defence; ftr, flak, SD, but for some reason TB has to deal with bulge too <i>to deal
the same amount of damage</i>. I'm not sure how this is supposed to be fair.
You have all these fucking Emden and Moltke's who just sit there firing flak into the
sky, but I think this is a general problem with bombing. It's just something that
pisses me off.
