If a thunderbolt buys the 'bombs' weapon load, can it make bombing runs?

no, it may only attempt to drop bombs on other aircraft.

But the bombing runs arent bombing runs, they are strafing- ie, you can only drop your bombs at alt1, not any higher.

Only planes classed as 'Bombers' can do proper bombing runs from alt3+

thats what I meant.

So i still have to strafe at Alt. 1 to drop the bombs.

I.e they can't make bombing runs - didnt htink so but wanted to check!

yeah they can only be dropped on ground targets from altitude 1 hitting on the normal 5. They also don't get bomb creep.
