— In-Game Description
Bomber wings are most lethal, and given the very wide coverage area of Bomber wings, they are highly desirable and essential for adequate base defense. Their high range can quickly inflict damage to decoy cruisers at long range and debilitate incoming blitz attack fleets charging in. Like all squadron wings, they can be destroyed by any weapon, explosive weapons in particular are more suitable as they have an explosive radius.
They are as heavy a squadron wing, fleet bays housing maximum number of level III Bomber wings are relatively lightly armored and shielded.
