The Strategic Bomber is an aircraft unit for the Post-Human Coalition.

Heavy bomber with devastating area of effect damage.

Background

Incredibly tough and capable of dropping large infrastructure bombs, the Strategic Bomber is the terror of ground-units everywhere. With armor-piercing and area damage, this unit's Mega Bombs can devastate an army if it isn't dealt with quickly.

Weapon Specs

Mega Bombs

Destructive strategic bomb designed to obliterate groups of units or structures.

  • 300 DPS per unit
  • 1200 meters range
  • Area Effect Weapon
  • 40% armor-piercing

Game Usage

  • Strategic Bomber is slow but durable and does tremendous amount of AoE damage. This makes it effective vs large armies where in whatever off-position the bomb might drop, it is guaranteed to do significant damage. Clumped defenses are also very good targets.
  • It's most effective to protect the Strategic Bombers with Fury squads to escort them to their destination.
  • Unlike Air Harbinger, Strategic Bomber does not have good and precise single target damage and cannot deal with lone units below the size of dreadnoughts or juggernauts without wasting a lot bombing run to drop the bomb precisely, particularly targets that have moderately high movement speed. It's best used to attack clumped and large armies / groups of units for maximum value rather than chasing lone units before most likely going down to enemy anti-air and ASFs.
  • Strategic Bomber Mega Bombs can destroy drones (except for invincible anti-air drones). This makes them surprisingly effective at shutting down the Overmind dreadnought. However, the Overmind does have an anti-air drone swarm, thus, it needs to be finished quickly or the Strategic Bomber will get shot down.
