I don't know how many of you use the bomber in later ages, I don't because 4-5 planes are more effective at suppression, but generally we all agree the bomber should either take less damage or do more damage per run. (both would be better)
I can live with the dps as is but I would like a boost to the HP. If that's not going to happen then how about an upgrade that gives the bombers chaff or flares to distract SAMs or towers? This could reduce the damage taken by the bombers and would have the same effect as a HP boost.
WW2 planes had this so why not introduce it in the global age? It should also give a nice visual effect.

I completely agree! It’s no coincidence that you never see top players using the bomber unit in MP and Wars.I can imagine a slightly buffed bomber being an effective tool against the silo. Who knows, it may very well be the buff that rebalances offence and defence!

How about death damage? The bombers can crash and hit whatever it was on top of when it dies. Something minor, yes, but something to consider.

Seems a little kamikaze-ish but should look good onscreen! :D
I'm glad this post is back though.

I want to keep this alive because I think the bomber is grossly underestimated as a late level troop BUT it needs something extra, like flying higher or more DPS or, better yet, some awesome flares!! :D

Or a library or Uni upgrade that adds a fighter escort that deals mini suppression of towers/antiaircraft and may absorb a SAM

I'd be on board with that but you could simulate that with the current fighters. Send the bomber out and a few secs later send out the planes so they hit the towers just as your bomber 'bombs'. Instant fighter escort/SAM fodder.
I did this all the time when I first got the bomber. :)

i also send out a fighter escort but sometimes the bomber still gets hit because the bomber is bigger and also turns wider and also sometimes just plain turns the other direction as the fighter turn

I wouldn't mind a buff for bombers. I have tested a strategy with one bomber / two fighters combination and was fairly pleased, but, in general, I prefer Transports to both of them!
