I'm working on the mission for destroying three in an Attack Flight. When do these flights appear? I attack them often, but I can't predict them.

Bomber flights are spawned by Command Centers as long as there is at least one capture point controlled by the enemy team.

Thank you. I just had a battle in which their were two red bomber flight pathways and one blue one. It was easy to complete the mission with that game!

Something to keep in mind with bomber flights is that almost every map has different pathing for bomber flights. Attack priorities also vary from what I've seen, so don't expect them to always attack the most critical sectors right away.

I do fly Chinese aircraft a fair amount so... *ahem*

I even made a custom skin for my IL-10M!

my observation is the flights attack the bases in the order they were capped. The first base you cap is always their first target, and I believe that holds true for the rest

Some maps I've made the same observation, others seem to have a target list which seemingly changes from map to map. I haven't put a ton of time into getting exact information on how command centers work on every map, but there's no 100% guaranteed rule on their targeting unless you know the map layout itself.

Do bomber splashes count toward kills for Specialist? For kill total for battle? How about after they drop their payload and are no longer red?

That's a good question - I don't think they do but I could be mistaken. They still count as kills after they drop their load though

They don't count as enemies therefore don't count to spec
