Strategy

  • Bombers are very powerful offensive air unit, having the ability to perform Strategic Bombing Raids on enemy factories. However, they are the most expensive air unit and have poor defensive capabilities.
  • Bombers cannot land on Carriers, so it is harder to use them in island conflicts (like the Pacific).
  • Bombers can perform Strategic Bombing Raids (SBR). In SBRs Bombers can drop bombs and deal damage to Industrial Complexes which hampers their ability to produce units until damage is repaired by spending IPCs. Before they drop their bombs they must get past enemy defenses, taking fire from AA and enemy fighters. SBRs do not involve most land units. This makes for interesting aerial combat, where you can lose quite expensive units- no infantry fodder here!
