WCCIC Review

I always thought those low Bombing values on Thunderbolts and Longbows were odd. There was no way a single generic ship could actually damage a Carrier. But those ships should be using torpedoes I suppose.. so we have the Torpedo card. That's nice, but other things may be better. Two craft with Torpedoes would kill a Carrier, but so could two craft with Bombing 3. A Bombing value of 3 isn't terribly hard to achive if you plan things a bit. A super bomber with a Bombing value of six isn't impossible either (although you're going to have to be working those pilots, medals, etc). I think with so many options available to TBolts and Longbows, the best use of the Torpedo is with the Torpedo Mount on a lesser fighter. Make the most of your assets.
