Does an air unit (or air units) with Strategic Bombing fly to an enemy capital and roll a die for each combat value and destroy a factory for each one rolled? That is my understanding of 12.62. Is it really that easy and risk free?

Please let me know how Strategic Bombing works.

Certainly not easy and not risk free. First, you need to research the tech. Then, you need planes in range of a capital. Said capital will most likely be heavily defended so as your planes focus on trying to bombard the industry, they will be fought back by whatever is sitting in the capital and can hit air units. Enemy planes are especially hurtful, as they hit other planes on a 3 or less (And they will fire first unless this is the turn on which you declared war).

So, a viable strategy if you're playing the long game I guess, but certainly not overpowered.

So your opinion is that strategic bombing is treated as a Raid Battle, 12.63. If that is correct then all defending units that can fire at air units will fire at the strategic bombers. Do the strategic bombers get to fire at the capital defenders and make a bombing attack also? I don't see this in the rules and is type of clarification I am searching for in the rules and not finding.

The way to see it is that when you have the tech, Industry becomes a new viable "Hit on a 1" target. So instead of targeting planes, boats, infantry, etc., you target the Industry. Nothing changes otherwise, that's why the rules paragraph is so short I guess.
