    New rules v2.2 page 20 say flak hits on 5-6 and on page 30 for bomb runs hit only on 6 . Should it be 5-6 for all flak attacks.

    So to be clear

    1. Non-bombing flak hits on a 5 or 6

    2. Bombing run flak hits only on 6

    It would seem that bombers on the bombing run would be more vulnerable

    In reality flak was far more dangerous on the bomb run due to the inability of the aircraft to maneuver IP inbound. IMHO, I believe it should be reversed or, at worst, that 6 remain the only hit number fo ALL flak.

    I am in 100% agreement about flak being more dangerous from IP to target (bombers were again free to take evasive after bombs away. Thus, I'd say 5-6 on the bomb run, 6 everywhere else.
