I chose a mixture of Wyvern and Dragon body VTOLs, armed with a rage of weapons including heavy lasers, bunker busters, scourge missiles, heap bombs, and my personal favourite... plasmite bombs.
Normally when you attack with bombs you're just hitting one target and they start flying back as soon as that target is destroyed. But when you set them to patrol, they hit dozens of targets and keep searching out new targets. In the first wave you can expect heavy losses on both sides, but due to heavy bombing an inferno breaks out in the enemy base causing massive destruction.
In the first screen shot, you can see the impressive attack formation caused by:
- Different payloads mean different speed of flight = multiple waves (indicated by red arrows)
- Lots of each type = they fan out in to an arc.
