If you go on a strategic bombing mission with 2 fighters and a bomber and you take a hit from an AA gun does the bomber take the first hit or can you loss a fighter and keep going to your target.And when you reach the territory with the IPC you are bombing can the ground forces in that territory defend or is it just the AA guns.
- Your fighters don’t “go on a strategic bombing mission”. They only participate in ground assault. This may seem counterintuitive, since it seems logical for the fighters to escort the bombers, but only bombers do strategic bombing.
- Any forces in the area attacked, whether tanks, infantry, planes, or artillery, have no affect on strategic bombing. Only the AA gun shoots back - once per bomber.
Has anyone figured the odds? Since you have a 1 in 6 chance of being shot down (thus losing 12 production points) and a 5 in 6 chance of doing 1d6 damage to the factory, what is the net gain or loss, on average? If I’m doing it right, you have a net gain of 0.91 points per run. Not a lot.
BTW, I’m new to this board, greetings all.
