Corsair – Bomber

Corsair – BomberThe Corsair fills a very small niche: using your air superiority to kill ground units when you don’t yet need T3 strategic bombers. They’re more powerful than gunships, but their wide arc after dropping their cluster missiles means that they can only be relied on to make one pass, unlike gunships. While they’re OK against structures (you may have to build them to take out a critical point but otherwise don’t try it), they’re great for filling the friendly skies against ground units. This one won’t change the face of the war.

Cormorant – Torpedo Bomber

Cormorant – Torpedo BomberTorpedo bombers are all but useless. They cost a lot of mass for a unit that’s going on a suicide mission anyway (since most ships have decent air defenses), their torpedo can be shot down by enemy ships, and their bomber-like flight path makes them more likely to stray into the enemy base than a gunship. If you can’t get an ocean foothold and you need to clear out the sub hunting packs, build a dozen of these; otherwise, stick to gunships.

Renegade – Gunship

Renegade – GunshipThe Cybran gunship fires three rockets in a small area, which helps when trying to hit mobile units but won’t always ensure you get the full 60 damage. Gunships in general are a serious threat, although they’re very vulnerable to anti-air when they’re attacking. They’re the number one reason to build interceptors – so that your gunships can roam around, forcing the opponent to fight for every mass patch and defend his base.

Dragon Fly – Air Transport

Dragon Fly – Air TransportWhile it’s nice that the air transport can defend itself, its main method of defense is its “heavy” armor, allowing it to take a couple shots from air defenses and still drop its cargo. They carry twice the amount of units that a T1 transport does: 12 T1 guys, 6 T2 guys, 3 T3 guys, or an ACU/SCU. If your Commander is being transported, he won’t die with the air transport. The Cybran stun shot doesn’t really make a difference, but it’s nice to dream.
