A friend of mine and myself are planning to conduct a scenario from the Battle of the Bismarck Sea using WW2 Wings of Glory aircraft. The scenario depicts an Allied air attack on a Japanese convoy of six ships with fighter cover.
Attacking Allied aircraft included B17s, B25s, and Beaufighters. The Japanese convoy consisted of transports and destroyers sailing from Rabaul to Lae, New Guinea. The battle lasted three days with all of the Japanese ships being sunk.
Does anyone have a bombing procedure for attacking ships with B17s and B25s? What about bomb dispersal?

This was the battle in which the US introduced skip bombing, so you have pretty much picked the hardest thing.

EDIT: I incorrectly typed USN; obviously the airplanes in question were the Army's.

I'm a feder-allergic and I blame the Klingon for not having smashed the Federation in time to save us from Star Trek serials.

Brian replied first to present the ruling work to be done. My advice is to send a geekmail to the designer and ask his help. He's a kind person and will reply.
