Sorry guys, perhaps this topic  may annoy you but I don't understand formula of damage.

Because i played Tier 6 Independence ( Elite status- max upgrade of dive bomber), dropped accurately 5 bombs (manual control) on the BB Kongo but did about 6k damage on her.

Feeling some shit and stink with this damage and lost 4 aircraft after this attack.

So hope that you or any staff of WG could clarify the formula of damage by bombing, HE shell and all of damage type.


P/s: I love WOW ( world of warcraft, not world of warships) because of its clarification in PvP and PvE.

Damage formula for bombs is same as AP/HE shells. Penetration = x0.33 listed damage, citadel hit (very unlikely to happen with bombs) = x1.0 listed damage. No penetration = no damage, but HE shells and bombs can still damage modules and start fires via splash.
