7.39.1 A fighter will make a Successive Attack if:

184.108.40.206 If the final result is “On Target (250 feet) roll on TZ-5a, On Target, 250 feet. If the final result is “On Target (500 feet) roll on TZ-5a, On Target, 500 feet. If the final result is “Off Target” roll on TZ-5a, Off Target. If TZ-5a, Off Target is 0 add %-age from Bombing by Boxes/Flight and Player (see bottom of TZ-5a).
Comment (not in the Flight Manual)
A superior result can only come from "On Target (250 feet)" on TZ-4a or b, plus modifications on TZ-5a. If you are "On Target (500 feet)" on TZ-4a or b the maximum result you can score is Excellent, even if you have modifications which give you 100% or more. In this case 100% of your bombs falls within 500 feet of the target. Some have also hit within 250 feet of the target, but not enough to score a superior result. A superior result can only come from 100% on target (where all bombs have hit within 250 feet). If the result on TZ-4a or b is On Target (250 feet), and the result is lower than 100% most of the bombs fall within 250 feet of the target, but if the final result is lower than 80% the result is only good or less.

11.3 Bomber Maintenance and Repair Time
The maintenance and repair procedure is simplified o an extreme in B-26. To keep it simple your bomber will be ready for the next mission unless it is irreparably damaged. For a more detailed procedure all superficial damage will be repaired on time for the next mission. All damage on one to two of the Damage Tables (DT-1 to 9) will take one day, or one mission, to repair (see Target Lists & Gazetteers, General Notes). Each wing is treated separately. If one wing (DT-6) and the tail (DT-9) are damaged it will take one day/mission. Both wings and the tail will take two days/two missions.
