Especially the side attack bonus. It’s pretty significant.

You could think like in real life, ships in front, just press fire, the ones in second, have some ships in front of them, so need to fire more carefull, and ships ships in last row… have a lot of ‘friendly’ targets in front, so cannot fire at full, not to hit the friendlys;)

What does SB distance damage bonus have anything to do with rows in a fleet?

@Lync, no, Place in fleet formation have nothing to do with SB distance bonus Damage.

The bonus for distance its calculated between fleets, not ships inside formation. The distance is the number of ‘map’ squares between you and target + 1;)
