1. Do bombs need to be dropped at the start of a turn "before revealing any maneuver card" or can they be dropped mid-turn?
The can be dropped in any phase. The player declares he is dropping bombs at the start of the phase prior to revealing the maneuer card
2. What does the next paragraph mean? "The player executes the maneuver card, and, before weapon fire is resolved, puts the bombs into play.
If the last maneuver card of the bomber was a stall, the player places a stall maneuver card in front of the airplane and then places the bomb card so that the arrow on its rear matches the one on teh rear of the stall maneuver card. If the last maneuver card was not a stall place a straight..." Does this mean the bomber moves, then places the bomb card, and then the bombs move also (either straight of stall distance)?
So after the maneaver is resolved, but before the firing is resolved, the bombs are placed.
To place the bombs use either a stall or straight (deopending on maneuver card used) in front of the bomber, and then place the bomb card lining up with this stall/straight.
So summary of the phase when including bombing:
1) Declare bombs
2) Reveal Maneuver Card
3) Resolve Maneuver Card
4) Resolve Bombs declared in (1) above:
(a) Place Straight/Stall in front of Bomber
(b) Place Bomb card in front of card placed in 4a)
(c) Score bombs is playing without altitude rules (so bombs hit immediatley)
5) Resolve Firing
Hope this has helped clear up, and not confused further.
