Question about Battleship's Special Abilities



  • Heavy Armor: Ignore the first hit on a battleship each turn (a roll of 1 or 2).

    Resilience: Damaged instead of destroyed on a hit roll of 2.

    Say for example sub does it’s torpedoes attack rolls a 1.
    " a unit damaged or destroyed by this attack will be removed from the zone before it can attack."
    Because of its Heavy armor it ignores its attack.

    A second sub then attacks rolls a 2. The battleship is now destroyed because of the subs special attack correct?

    –----------------------------------
    Second scenario

    A sub uses its torpedo attack hits and this attack is ignored.

    In the Naval combat a 2 is rolled. The Battleship is damaged it would take another hit to destroy it correct?

    No, the Battleship is only damaged and placed in the damaged area of the base card before proceeding to the combat phases. Rolls of two only damage battleships, cruisers, destroyers and aircraft carriers. Battleships ignore the first hit on them no matter the value of the roll. The subs special ability causes the damage or sinkings they do to be enforced before the combat phase.

    You need at least two subs and each need to hit in order to remove the battleship during the sub attack phase. The second hit needs to be a 1 in order to destroy the battleship and collect the victory point. Any hit by a sub will carryover to the combat phase. Remember also that each sub moves and rolls separately.

    Second scenario

    A sub uses its torpedo attack hits and this attack is ignored.

    Correct. Specifically another hit in the same combat.
