(Answered) Bombing questions
« on: 20 August 2019, 19:31:37 »
Apologies if this is the wrong place but as the questions cover several books I thought it'd be easier to ask here.

1) Can any aircraft unit mount Bomb Bays or just LAMs (IOpg114)? I know there's an Quirk  (SOpg195). I just wondered if there was actual equipment they could mount.
2) Can Airships carry bombs internally, externally, or both? I can't find rules that they can't but there is the rule for them dropping Remote Sensors using the bomb rules. (SOpg375)
3) Are External Consumables Pods (TMpg195) limited to Fighters only or can any aircraft that can carry bombs/cargo carry them? 
4) Can LAMs carry External Consumables Pods and Recon Cameras(TOerratapg65 in their bomb bays? I don't see either on the LAM's Bomb Bay Ordnance Table (IOpg390) but they can carry fuel and TAG. Is this an omission not an exclusion?
5) Does the answer to 3) also apply to ground units as they can carry cargo and may need the Pods to extend their operations in space/tainted atmospheres?


Thanks :)

1) LAMs only.

2) Airships can't bomb.

3) Any aircraft can use them provided they meet the appropriate engine and environmental sealing to be able to operate in hostile atmospheres as well.

4) Yes, and for Recon Cameras they can be used per p. 150 of TO:AUE.

5) Yes, as per answer 3 above.
