CV Note: If you use a factor of 2.2 to convert kg to lbs it's only 6,160 lbs to sink a CV. Therefore it's most likely the game code used the 2.4 figure to make the Axis bombs more powerful for CVs, no effect on other objects. Tests were done on a special terrain that allowed fast turnaround and repeated verification (i.e. stationary CV etc). If you test and have different results, make sure you are not testing your skill instead of the hardness. CA can be set in Object Hardness, at 4.0 = 11 torps.
