MAIN AND AFT BOMB BOMB BAYS IN B-26
As was mentioned above the B-26 until the B-26B/C-45 had two bomb bays, one main and one aft. The aft bomb bay was rarely used in the ETO and was deleted on the later B-26 models. In B-26 only the main bomb bay will be used, but as an option on short missions no longer than to Zone 3, roll 2D6. On “11-12” the aft bomb bay will be used and it will have slight extra effect on the bomb run, and will consume more fuel. (See Target Zone Table 4a & b and 5a for modification and The Fuel Consumption Chart.)

0-4: Off course. Stay one more turn in this Zone. If this is the second turn in the current zone, stay two turns in the next zone. The first turn is off course, the second is on course. Move forward then check MT-4 before moving into the next turn (after MT-2).
5-12: On course. Move forward then check MT-4 before moving into the next turn (after MT-2).

While working on B-25 I now realize that Hydraulic Failures are too complicated to use. I will revise it all.

Here's an idea I'm working on now while I am updating the expansions to FDD.CROSSFEED
As long as the Fuel Transfer pump is operating the first leak on two separate tanks are no effect. The second leak on one tank is Treated as a Leak on a third thank (Player’s choice). The first and second tanks will be considered empty from this point.
When the third tank is empty, the fourth tank is Treated as a Leak. If the third tank leaks before a second leak on another tank see 1st leak on main/outboard tank.
Should the fourth tank leak before the third tank is empty see first leak on main/outboard tank and keep track of how much fuel remains in each tank.
When the third tank is empty, fuel from the fourth tank supplies both engines. Divide the remaining fuel turns by 2 rounded up.

Mechanical Failures or combat damage can result in drag or slowing down your bomber. An unfeathered propeller, landing gear down, flaps down, cowl flaps open, BIP damage and Aft Bomb Bay Doors jammed open will cause drag.
7.42.1 The B-26 is out of formation (see 7.45.0 Out of Formation) immediately after the attack (Initial/Successive/FLAK/Mechanical Failure - see A.5.26) and after all actions are finished in the current Turn the B-26 must begin the next Turn returning to base. (See also 7.42.4 to 6.)
7.42.2 Bombs must be dropped. If the bombs cannot be dropped the B-26 must crash land or the crew bail out at the end of the second turn at the latest. Jettison ammunition and machine guns to gain one more turn.
7.42.3 With one engine out and drag the crew must bail out Table BO-1b. If at 2000ft or lower Table BO-1c or crash landing on LT-1a (Land) or LW-1 (Water). Bail out or land at the end of the Turn.
7.42.4 If DRAG damage in the Target Zone by Mechanical Failures/Fighters: The B-26 is out of formation and the bombs must be dropped. It will not go through FLAK nor bomb with the Formation. After all actions are finished in the current Turn the B-26 must begin the next Turn returning to base. (See 7.42.6.)
7.42.5 If DRAG damage in the Target Zone by FLAK: The B-26 is out of formation and the bombs must be dropped. It will not bomb with the Formation. After FLAK in the current Turn the B-26 must begin the next Turn returning to base. (See 7.42.6.)
7.42.6 When returning the B-26 must go through two Turns in the current Turn and two turns in each of the following zones.
7.42.61 If returning in the Target Zone after FLAK, the first Turn has first FLAK (TZ-2) then Fighters on MT-2. The second Turn has only Fighters on MT-2. (If Advanced Table MT-1a is used, roll on it first each Turn.)
7.42.62 If already returning from Target the B-26 is out of formation and must go through one more turn in the current zone.
7.42.4 The mission may be aborted.
7.42.5 No Evasive Action (7.46.0) is allowed.
7.42.6 Drag & Fuel Consumption. (MAY CHANGE!)
7.43 SLOWED has been deleted. ALL FOLLOWING SECTIONS WILL BE RENUMBERED.

Sorry. Seems I have been inactive. Both yes and no. Got stuck on rules tweaking trying to change rules to make them easier to understand and play - and so I can continue my mission.
