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

  • 300 DPS per unit
  • 1200 meter 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 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 before most likely going down to enemy anti-air and ASFs.
