Cityscape Information

The Bomber is a craft that the Aliens will keep using until the Control Chamber is destroyed.

Battlescape Information

The bomber has a double door at the south side of the screen, and a single entry with ramp at the north side of the screen. You must have a squad on each side or else poppers and micronoids will flank you and surprise you outside the ship.

Other Notes

The Bomber is seen during the opening video, though it does not appear ingame until several weeks after the initial incursions.

Bombers are the only Alien ships that carry Micronoids as part of their crews.
