Can't damage AI in air sim

I’ve just flown out the Jaguar IS in simulator battles with its laser guided bombs, and have hit two ships which were part of a convoy, their carrier, a tank on the ground and a ship at a port, and it was only the ship at the port that I was able to damage and destroy. All the others I watched the bomb hit them and explode, but I could see in the hit cam that they did no damage, not one crewmember was killed. Why is this? Am I missing something?

Broken sim battles moment

Yes you are missing something. If a bomb impacts a modeled vehicle directly, you will get the hit camera for the damage the bomb dealt by physically impacting the vehicle (usually none) instead of the real damage from the explosion. This is just a bug related to the hit camera. You have dealt the damage, likely not enough to sink it though.
