"Your bombers are now heavy bombers. When attacking, whether in a battle or strategic bombing raid, roll two dice for each bomber and select the best result."

Does this apply to tactical and strategic bombers? Since there is nothing else that applies specifically to the tactical bombers, I have to assume that it does.

We play alpha +3.

Any ideas or references to rule clarifications would be appreciated.

I'd have thought that it doesn't apply to the tac bombers.

The rule states "bombers" Until there is something that specifically says strategic only I don't see how it could only apply to one and not the other.

We have always assumed it only applied to Strategic Bombers. I actually looked it up in the (obsolote) manual expecting to find the tactical bombers called "Tactical Bomber" and the strategic bombers as just "Bomber" as that would support our assumption. It turned out they were listed as "Strategic Bombers"...

It is intended to apply only to strategic bombers.

So, other than "Long Range", there is nothing that applies specifically to the tactical bombers (i.e. Jet fighters)?
