Vaygr Bomber

Homeworld 2


Class: Fighter
Anti-Capital Ship
Cost: ? (6 craft)
Hit Points: 180
2 x Plasma Bomb Launchers (gimbal)

The Bomber is a deadly combination of maneuverability and destructive firepower. The twin fusion bomb launchers release highly volatile bottled plasma that burns through hull plating, ignites munitions stores, and overloads control systems.

"The story involves the Hiigarans and details their struggle against a raging warrior race, the Vaygr. ... Certainly, the new enemy is completely new, distinctive and menacing." - Dan Irish, Executive Producer

"The two sides are different in terms of technology so you won't even be able to research the other's type of tech. They share basic stuff like resourcing, but that's it. Hiigarans are more well rounded with their fleets where the Vaygr are much more specialized in their uses." - Josh Mosquiera, Lead Designer

"From the Inner Rim, the Hiigarans have to stand up to this bitter enemy that wields the power of the ancients." - Action Trip

This attack bomber operates in squadrons of 6 craft.

It appears to be armed with a new version of Homeworld's plasma bombs.

When I first saw this bomber on the second poster image, I was immediately reminded of the K3 Shark from the Terran Trade Authority books. Which is a good thing.
