Bombers are bird-shaped starfighters that were manufactured in the weapons labs on Macbeth and utilised by Andross's army on Titania during the Lylat Wars.


Bombers are red bird-like starfighters (not to be confused with Firebirds or Gores). They are fairly large, so they can be spotted in the distance, well before they come too close to the Landmaster.

Enemy Recon

Keep your sights fixed on these bird-like ships and be ready to swerves or hover, because they'll swoop across your path to dump land mines in front of you.

Medal Tips

As usual, bombs will help you take out clusters of enemies in this mission. Destroying the lead ships in attacking squadrons with a charged laser bolt will take out the followers with a single shot. Also, if you destroy the lead robot on the right hillside with a bomb, it will sometimes cause a chain reaction with the other robots on the hill.

Bombers were stationed on Titania during the Lylat Wars, when Fox McCloud drove the Landmaster in his search for Slippy Toad. The Bombers were spotted in advance by the avian ace pilot, Falco Lombardi, well before they came too close to make a surprise attack.
