tas damage to ground units calculations...?

I am curious if anyone knows how damage is calculated in relation to tactical bomber forces to ground units.

 

as an example ill use this battle report

 

--------------------------------------------------------------------------

General is the commander for Combat Bonuses for total +11%

The . inflicted the following damage:

 

 

ATTACKER STARTING FORCES

 

Air Div.

Air Group Name Experience Planes Air Group Name Experience Planes

1st Medium Bomber, IL-4 Green 60 2nd Medium Bomber, IL-4 Green 60

3rd Medium Bomber, IL-4 Green 60 4th Medium Bomber, IL-4 Line 60

5th Medium Bomber, IL-4 Line 60 6th Medium Bomber, IL-4 Green 59

7th Medium Bomber, IL-4 Line 60 8th Medium Bomber, IL-4 Green 60

9th Medium Bomber, IL-4 Green 60 10th Medium Bomber, IL-4 Green 60

11th Medium Bomber, IL-4 Green 60 12th Medium Bomber, IL-4 Line 60

13th Medium Bomber, IL-4 Line 59 14th Medium Bomber, IL-4 Line 60

15th Medium Bomber, IL-4 Green 59 16th Medium Bomber, IL-4 Green 60

17th Medium Bomber, IL-4 Green 60 18th Medium Bomber, IL-4 Green 59

19th Medium Bomber, IL-4 Green 58 20th Medium Bomber, IL-4 Green 60

21st Medium Bomber, IL-4 Green 60 22nd Medium Bomber, IL-4 Green 60

23rd Medium Bomber, IL-4 Green 60 24th Medium Bomber, IL-4 Green 60

 

 

DEFENDER'S DIVISIONS

Major General is the commander for

Corps (4 divisions)

Division Name Experience % Effective Division Name Experience % Effective

11th Armored, Crusader I Green 98% / 86% 12th Armored, Crusader I Green 98% / 86%

13th Armored, Crusader I Line 98% / 88% 14th Armored, Crusader I Green 98% / 84%

 

 

Flak reduced the effectiveness of this attack by 18%

 

---------------------------------------------------------------------

 

 

 

now the total tac strike rating of the force is 10,080 (420 per unit x 24)

not considering range/morale or any other modifiers for simplicity

 

what I am unclear is what factor does the ground force use in this scenario?

Total ARM points?

Total defense?

 

the 4 forces lost 10% 14% 12% 12% for an approx ave of 12% overall

which converts to 32 arm 44 arm 38 arm 38 arm in relation to 315 total arm for the individual units. (assuming arm has a factor in this, could be wrong though)

 

how does the damage done(unknown ground variable) relate to damage strength(tac rating)?

 

as well, would a larger or smaller force see the same 12% average?

 

I may be asking the unknown but am looking for a formula that I can roughly approximate into damage to ground units with tac air units.

I read over that post several times and did not see what I am looking for. that post was more of a relation between 2 bomber types, my question involves ground units and what determines the damage to them....for example:

 

is it tas rating of the air force vs the defensive rating of the ground?

does it use the same combat chart? Seems the chart is for ground battles.

 

My example shows defensive total of 2000 some compared to a tas rating of 10000 some, those odds are 5 to 1 and I lost alot less then the chart would indicate.

 

So mainly I am looking for how air to ground calculations occur and what variables are used. small modifiers such as commander bonuses, flak ect isnt neccessary, just a rough formula would be great.

 

thanks
