Fighting upper tier bombers may require skills and strategies not normally used against other categories of planes.  Given the EF's particular strong points and weaknesses, how is it best fought?  Are there strategies to not only fight and kill it, but to offset its perceived OPness?

Well, I'm flattered and not insulted enough by WBB to not tell you my secrets.

 

1:  XF-90  slash and burn

 

2:  Gang up with 2 or 3 attackers at the same time

 

3:  Ignore except to sic bots on them until they is worn down, then destroy

 

Other than those ideas I don't know what can reliably take out an aware EF 131 or Su-10

 

Oh wait,

 

4:  Get real lucky

top tier GAs are tough and fast, but the bots are just red meat           human GAs at T10 are much harder to kill, but T10 human heavies don't even work up a sweat    well, not much

^^^This is correct.

 

Vertical attacks with the XF-90 is the way to do it.  Any of the other HFs at T10 will have a hard time, due to the raw speed of the EF-131.
