I seem to know all those you mentioned. That only 5 dive bombers and one zero (or thereabouts) came back from the first attack on the Yorktown. That the Yorktown survived the dive bombing attack but not the torpedoing. I also know that Dive bomb / torpedo attacks at the Yamato and Musashi were simultaneous (not necessarily coordinated). And that the Heie was attacked by high level bombers in addition to torpedo bombers after she got pounded by shells. All I'm saying is that torpedo planes appear to be most effective at sinking unarmed, or crippled, or distracted, or confused ships. So not mentioning certain things does not automatically mean you ignore them. It's called driving home one's point without wasting bandwidth.
