Orks can have the best defence against incoming ordinance, if they would just time their bombers right, so they would collide with incoming threat. 1 usual bomber squadron has 6 attack against ordinance, while ork bomber squadron has 12. This can annihilate incoming bomber waves even before they reach ork ships.
You know its possible to trick fighter screens right? to use 1 wave of torpedoes to pull away the defensive fighter screen of a ships so that subsequent waves of torpedoes and ordinance have a much eaiser time reaching the target?
Secondly like you said the bomber screen only works properly IF you time the bombers properly, if you have no vision on the ship the you cant launch bombers like vs boarding torpedo ships so best efence is just theoretical not in practice, the best ordinance defense is eldar with defensive fighter screen and darkstar fighters
Lastly it dosnt change the fact that a factions bombers is nothing more than a scond glorified fighter screen that no other faction has to deal with, does any other faction have for example boarding pods that are just glorified bombers?
And still, you are wrong to say that orks should not have decent carriers
