Ahoy folks! I'm currently fighting a war UK vs USA in 1925, and have invaded Guantanamo Bay. During the initial landings, my capital ships tracked down and destroyed every single shore battery on Cuba, and almost destroyed the air station. Over the next few turns, I fought a number of battles in support of land combat, in which the USN was absolutely devastated. Furthermore, those same shore batteries were attacked and destroyed several more times. Despite now having a vast material superiority in the region and having blasted both shore batteries to smithereens three times, I am still getting messages about enemy coastal fortifications slowing down the invasion. How many more times must I bombard those guns to make them stay down?

I have extremely vague memories of it being mentioned somewhere that a shore battery is assumed to not only represent the gun battery itself, but also inland fortifications. It would also make sense seeing as how it's unlikely your forces would be held up on the beach for months. With that being said, it also doesn't make much sense that the gun batteries could be put back into action if your forces had moved inland, so I suspect an oversight in design or coding.
