Just as a note, it should be known that bombing was an inexact science in World War II. On about half the missions in this game, the bombs will completely miss the target (scoring 0%), and a 30% bomb run is considered a success. Anything over 50% is rare and cause for celebration.

I just wanted to let everyone know so we don't have a bunch of artificially depressed bombardiers after the first few missions.

Man, I have an evil dead eye for Pheasants, quail, dove, etc. One would think a city would be a piece of cake !

I know it's tough to decode for you bombardiers, but I put them in other threads marked, "Some rules and background, Part X." :p

In that case, I volunteer our flight for the fire-bombing of Dresden.

What's up with the Dead Heads being the ones that drop the bombs?
