Post subject: High level bomber in darkness  Reply with quote   (Liked by:0)  Like this post
Hello Everyone,

I have a question that's been bugging me for a long time now...

Does a high-level bomber suffer any penalties when making a bomb attack during darkness?

When making a high-level bomb attack hits are only scored on a 6. A 6 still counts as two hits. So, do 6's still count as two hits during darkness OR is there a -1 penalty applied to each 6 whereas they only count as 1 hit?

Would the 'Night Bomber' SA make any sense for a High-Level Bomber?

Feedback would be greatly appreciated, thanks!

This should be in the W@S Rules Clarification thread (i'll move it) but to answer your question:

Sixes would still count as two successes, so a HLB is oddly enough not impacted at all by darkness (except for having to make search checks).

Night Bomber would not make sense then, but Night Specialist would still!

NIGHT SPECIALIST: While in Darkness, this unit gets +1 on each search check and ignores darkness attack penalties.

Night Specialist applies to ASW attacks as well (which I am assuming are impacted by darkness--I would have to check), which some HLBs are able to make. So while bombs would always succeed only on 6+, this would open up the ability of ASW to do better.

Hey, thanks for the feedback. I didn't think Night Bomber made much sense either. I followed your suggestion and replaced it with Night Specialist, instead.
