(Answered) Altitude Bombing
« on: 02 May 2022, 14:44:38 »
Do the +2 "Air-to-Ground Attack Modifier" for bombing from the table on page 243 also affect "Altitude Bombing" ?

Reason i ask, is because our gaming group is debating this, and while the book seems to indicate that it does, when testing it out in Megamek it does not, so would just like to verify which is correct, and possibly report a bug in Megamek if the rules should include the +2.

My understanding:
Dive Bombing: Skill + 2
Altitude Bombing: Skill + 2 + Altitude

MegaMek:
Dive Bombing: Skill + 2
Altitude Bombing: Skill + Altitude

The +2 applies to all bombing attacks, including altitude bombing.  The mentions of to-hit modifiers will be adjusted to make the fact that the special altitude mod is cumulative clearer.
