Follow-up Comment #2, bug #17918 (project freeciv):
> Units with "Bombarder" flag are able to kill sea units and are
> damaged by return fire of such units.
This appears to be deliberate. From the original discussion in RT#8455
<http://bugs.freeciv.org/Ticket/Display.html?id=8455> (which you might not be
able to see): "Only land can be bombarded. If an attack is against a unit in
the sea, it reverts to a normal attack." (Note that the test is for the
terrain, not the unit type.)
If your bombarder is a land unit, the issue doesn't arise, because they can't
attack units at sea.
If it's a sea unit, then it can bombard units on land, and will fight
normally with units at/over the sea, which was I think the original intention
(for e.g. Ironclads). (I think there may be something a bit fishy with trying
to bombard air units over land, but haven't tested it.)
If it's an air unit, then I suspect the behaviour becomes quite fishy indeed
(especially it it's attacking/bombarding another air unit). The discussion in
the original ticket mentioned some trouble with air bombarders which I think
was never fully resolved.
> also, units with "Bombarder" flag damage all unit in the stack.
> Is it intended?
That's also deliberate, going by the above-mentioned discussion.
