So, just played Scenario 6. Tried to use SSM's to ding an airfield and it looks pretty hopeless....

You have to get a combat result of "5"
You have to subtract a base of 4 from your roll.
The defender typically gets an additional modifier of -X from the 15 or 21 column of the table...

So, assume I have 90 factors of SSM (the most possible) I have only 12% chance of doing 1 damage.

Are SSM's that bad against runways?

Maybe bombing in the only way to get the job done.....

I use tac cord 3+ which helps along with EW to improve the odds. Yes it is still hard to damage airfields. Bombing is far more effective, but the relative short range (soviet)limits you.
