Hey on the Kamikaze I had a question about the Critical Hit (once again).

It was full strength so the hit would reduce it. I was assuming you could either place the hit there OR actually destroy the reduced air or other reduced naval unit. The critical hit would give that flexibility, I think. If the hit goes to the Kamikaze isn't it just reduced and that's it?

Okay, got a question. Does the intrinsic defense factors come into play with bombardment losses?

If they don't, then is the 10-12 unaffected since it is the last step?

943 11/8/2018 5:57:00 PM Sep-Dec 1944 Japanese Message Okay, I think I finally found what I was looking for concerning intrinsic strength. Intrinsic strength is considered the last defensive step in the hex. So based on that let's see what I can make of this past round of combats.

Bunker Hill vs Nagoya 14 A/N +3 1944

roll is....
==============================
US 4+3=7=1.0*14=14 hits

This has the same question as the Tokyo attack. Can the ground unit lose it's last step since there is intrinsic defense points in the hex.

936 11/5/2018 1:30:00 AM Sep-Dec 1944 Japanese Message Do all the naval units at Ominato have any affect of the intrinsic defense? I'm thinking it doesn't but wanted your thoughts before doing ground combat rolls.

Essesx vs Tokyo : 14 AN +3 1944

roll is....
====================
Essex *+3=11=1.0*14-14 hits

Okay, got a question. Does the intrinsic defense factors come into play with bombardment losses?

If they don't, then is the 10-12 unaffected since it is the last step?
