Demolish the enemy with a Bomber Squadron carrier assault.
Bomber squadrons are an excellent all rounder squadron with a balance between firepower, flight time and range. They have highest amount of armor of any squadron. They are quite deadly and inflict high amounts of explosive type damage - as many players equip Spectral shields in combat, this is a desirable damage type. Bombers are the middle ground in range with 8,500 meters which is more range well beyond all other ship weapons.
