What is the basis for computing it in tactical Bombers?

The Wellington, which was used as a strategic bomber, rates as a tactical AC. By strategic, the Wellington was 2/3 of Bomber Harris's first 1,000 plane raid on Berlin. Not exactly a Tac Bomber. Anyway, the Wellington rates 8 for initiative, while the US B26 Marauder rates a 3. The A-26 Invader has twice the horsepower, twice the speed, a HP to weight ratio, in a plane that was IMHO a clearly superior Tac bomber get a 7.

It's a very good question and I'd suggest you post it at the Slitherine forum, which is far more active. I'm interested to see the response.

Best,

Tim
