    Interesting. I've printed these and use them, they're mostly really great.

    However the -3vp per extra bomber is rather ridiculous. On many missions, especially vs sub pens (-2 bombing), just getting Light damage is difficult, so adding two bombers would put you at 0 or -1 mission VP, so what's the point of doing the mission? Likewise if you add just one bomber but want to wait out the "Heavy Clouds" you rolled. That's -7vp from the get go, and you're extremely unlikely to earn that back on a difficult target. So I'm not seeing any real "tactical decision" to add bombers, because you're choosing from a chance to inflict Light damage vs 0 vp for doing the mission. Basically the only added tactical decision is waiting out the weather.

    Sometmes you have to go on a mission that is most likely lost. You can still collect some points on destroyed Interceptors though. If you could add an extra bomber for just -1 VP, that would be just too easy way to withstand flak and hit the target. That woudl be broken. You can always check the attack table and see if the extra bomber may pay back or not at all.
