Longbows will probably be the primary capship strike craft in many games.
With a Bombing of 2 however, you're going to need another strike craft or a
stat modifier to make a good hit. The easiest thing would be to send in two
Longbows, but that's not extremely safe. Longbows have very low Attack and
nonexistent Support values. Their Maneuver is only 1 and Defenses only 3.
They're not going to be good in a stand up fight. You could make a flight of
a Longbow and heavier ship. It's smart to take either a Thunderbolt or
Excalibur so that you can score a capship hit. Think about using the Taunt
card to make them shoot at the ship worth the leas to you.
To play it safe, send in a wing of more capable attack first to clear out the
defenses and hold the Longbows back. Use them to deliver the killing blow.
