Airstrike Concept
Airstrike is a new type of armament that first appears on Dutch cruisers. Due to the fact that this is a new mechanic, both the concept of ships and the concept of armament can change significantly during testing. At the moment, aircraft, called by the Air Strike armament, are equipped with HE bombs, will operate at a distance of 8-12 km and drop bombs on an area comparable to the size of two battleships. Bombs will take a long time to reach their target, so it's best to use them against large and low-mobility targets. At the same time, the aircraft do not detect opponents and unlike aircraft carrier squadrons, they are not directly controlled by the player.
This type of armament is based on the actually used method of low-altitude bombing with parachute-equipped bombs.
