Destroyable aircraft carriers?

Recommended Posts


Yes

 

However the only way to sink a USN Nimitz class carrier is with nuclear weapons.

 

All others can be sunk with conventional bombs, but it will take several to do so.

I've seen the Nimitz go down in like, two hits.

Well, in SF 2: North Atlantic, an A-7 Corsair II with a load of M117 bombs can sink pretty much anything that floats. ( US & URSS carriers included. )

 

Now, I don't know exactly what class is the stock game carrier's, but if they're stock, then they can be sunk.

( The Kuznetsov will go down it just 5 or 6 well placed M117 (750 lbs) bombs. )

I was trying out the Kitty Hawk's strenght the other time.

An A-6 Intruder load of 500 lb Mk 82 bombs could not sink her, but IIRC two 2000 lb bombs did the trick.
