Should your base encounter hostiles, the Bomber Wing is equipped with Explosive damage, and launches directly from your fleet bay.
The Bomber Wing is a Bomber Squadron designed to be used in bases, popular amongst medium-level players.
It flies directly towards targets that enter its scramble range. In combat, it looks identical to the Bomber Squadron but has a stronger orange aura.
Strategy and Setup
Bomber Wings share the same advantages as Bomber Squadrons, with superior firepower and health. They are also great at depleting the shields of sniper decoys, which often use Repulsor Shields as they are mostly hit by Projectile turrets.
Bomber Wings are fairly massive, reducing the amount of armor and shields you could equip otherwise.
Bomber Wings can be easily exploited by a certain tactic: park a line of destroyers such that the Fleet Bay, Ship Factory or Bridge lies just outside their maximum range, allowing the wings to launch, then shoot through them and damage it and/or nearby modules. This allows snipers to destroy structures that are otherwise impossible to hit without return fire.
The Bomber Squadron is the first base squadron introduced to the game.
