The Aeolus Assault Bomber was designed as a Black Ops bomber. It has a
Nav Computer and close to state of the art hyperdrive. It is designed to
drop into a system undetected, using stealth systems, and get into the
atmosphere. Once in the atmosphere it will drop into a terrain following
mode at high speeds. It has a cluster of Long-Reach missiles for use
against enemy fighter patrols, to take them down at long range with one
hit. Then it also has Hellfire incindiary missiles to obliterate ground
targets such as bunkers, garrisons, and factories. Also the ship can be
equipped with a tactical nuclear warhead for use on large scale targets
such as a city targeted for wiping out.
The ship was designed as a counter to the Scimitar Assault Bomber,
however the empire managed to hijack several shipments of the fighters
and they saw use on both sides during the time of the Reborn Emperor.
