Hi! As I read rule 13.4.2 only qualify for evasion
* Bombers
* Alerted fighters not bounced

but they must always have same or greater speed rating.

So a P-40B (speed 5) attacking an unloaded Ki-21 (speed 3) don't qualify but a climbing P-40B attacking a diving Ki-21 do qualify?

Thanks.

Actually a reading of 13.4.2 should be:

* Bombers not bounced
* Alerted fighters not bounced

But yes, otherwise your example applies. Most bombers won’t be able to evade fighters, but there will be situations, particularly with fast bombers, where they can.

Yes. Mosquito speeds are in the region of 5 or 6, depending on Mark. And they are low drag too, so not slowed by bombs. Fighters are going to have fun catching those.
