Is it me, or do I think that the Shivan warheads in Blue Planet are very dangerous? I was flying the Vishnan Missionary just now when I got caught in the shockwave of an Unknown Megabomb. The explosion depleted my front shields completely and reduced my hull from 100% to 20%. :wtf:

Nobody's allowed out over here anyway.   I nominate E (as a fair and just overlord) to arrange a Zoom HLP Social.

be carefull... specially on "forced entry" the bombs used by bomber wings that attack the sanctuary and the temerarie (the last bomber wings I think) are quite over-powered and will blow you away if you stand close.

I'm in your boat too. In BP, just use your missiles to attack the bombs because the shockwaves are really dangerous in my opinion.

I never had that issue. Then again, I favor Maxims for that mission. They do very high hull damage and can hit from outside AAAf beam range, so they're great for those rotten little cruisers in Forced Entry.

The Maxim also happens to have a far greater range than an exploding bomb's blast radius. ;)

This is despite the fact that I don't use it.

Yeah, I knock the hell out of bombs way far away with maxims. Sadly their shield damage is quite poor.

Then you'll probably be quite stumped if you ever try shooting one down at close range. :drevil:

Normal bombs don't hurt you when you blow them up at close range, provided your shielding isn't breached in a region.

If you actually get hit by a bomb - even a Helios, it will barely make a difference to your shield level. 

Still, it is quite shocking being hit by a Helios on a head-on charge against Sekhmets.   ;)

Yeah, but only NORMAL bombs. The bombs in Blue Planet appear to be otherwise. ;)

Well, I guess that they had to be that powerful - seriously from what I read in the past, it is said that the Helios bomb is even more powerful than an atomic.

ORLY?

I swear, on more than one occasion, while trying to shoot down a bomb, I went a little too close and entered the bomb's hit region, after which I asploded in one hit.

Perhaps your shield quadrants were breached - with the enemy bombers shooting your fighter on all sides.

Well the Shivan megabombs are uberfied in damage, so while they gave nothing more than a blood nose before, they give enough damage now to be fatal.
