The FB-98 "Missile" bombers are heavy assault ships generally used against land bases. The fighters always work in pairs, because the firing sequence uses up the ship's primary power supply for over a minute. While the power supply recharges, the other ship flies in defensive patterns around the other bomber fires. Combined with other starfighters and bombers, these ships can be absolutely devastating. The bombers are no longer made, as a new version was made that did not have the long recharge times.
