Nordera Bombardier

The Nordera Bombardier is a heavier version of the Nordera Pillager, which carries more weaponry.


Wings of Dawn Tech Room Description

The heavy Nordera fighter designated 'Bombardier' is essentially a Pillager with its ventral cannon emplacement replaced with a torpedo launcher. Lacking shielding, jump drives, or afterburners, and being even more sluggish than the Pillager, the Bombarier's sole role appears to be delivering high-explosive unguided rockets and torpedoes to capital ships. While these weapons are highly effective against the reflective armor commonly found of LSF warships, they are largely incapable of breaching warship-grade shield generators and are only dangerous if the targeted warship has been stripped of its shielding.

The Bombardier is plated with large slabs of solid steel which are highly resistant to solid projectiles, but are significantly more vulnerable to energy-based weaponry. The large amount of explosives carried onboard as propellant and ammunition causes a sizeable shockwave when the craft is destroyed.

Basically a Nordera Pillager with a different weapons setup. It does have a little more armor though, so best to use energy weapons on them or you might end up wasting your time.
