Is this "bombard" in the technical sense. Yes
Longturn is using the civ2civ3 ruleset which has the bombard flag for bombers and helicopters.
The helicopter can occupy the city. The bomber can't.
The error comes with bombers.

It is easy to replicate.
Start a game with the civ2civ3 ruleset.
enter edit mode
give yourself 10 bombers outside an empty enemy city.
attack the city
some of your bombers will now be veteran

Is this "bombard" in the technical sense (unit has "Bombarder" flag, and it's active, so unit can't kill defender but doesn't receive return fire)?
(No units in the default ruleset have the "Bombarder" flag.)

Depending on whether unit has CanOccupy -flag it should either occupy the city or get the error message that it cannot.

If you bombard an empty city the combat animation is shown and the bombarding unit may gain veterancy.
