The Bomber is the first Bomber Aircraft and becomes available in the Modern Age. Purchasable from an Airbase Bombers can be used to raze enemy structures, stationary ground vehicles or slow-moving targets with brutal results.

Bombers pack a lot of health than their faster cousins, the Fighter, but they travel slower as a result.

Another weakness laya to their vulnerability to enemy fighters and ground based anti-aircraft, the former capable of eating away a wing of bombers. Escorts of friendly Fighters are advised.

These Bombers are not as accurate aa its succeeding incarnations but that compensates their Area-of-Effect.

Like fighters, Bombers consume fuel whilst in the air. Once depleted, bombers automatically return to their designated Airbase to refuel.

HistoryEdit

Historically, the Germans used zeppelins as bombers, mainly in World War I. A bomb was first known to be dropped from a plane in 1911 by Italians in their campaign for Libya. Thus, the modern bomber grew out of the earliest fighter aircraft. As bombers evolved, however, their design began to look radically different from the fighter planes of the time. As aircraft engines were notoriously inefficient at the time, bombers required many more engines than the average fighter plane, leading to the classic four-engined bomber that is now a symbol of World War II.

The larger amount of engines allowed a bigger fusalage; allowing a larger bomb bay and even on-board defenses to protect themselves from agile fighters.

Over the years, scientists began refining the classic bomber to adjust it to the ever changing face of war.
