We first saw the Avenger Strike Fighters in February 2020, which I did manage to blog about back then. I mentioned them again in my post about what I thought we might see next for Aeronautica Imperialis.
In this week’s preview from the Warhammer Community they are mentioned again, which means that they are going to be released imminently, I would have thought.
A new aircraft is swooping in for the Imperial Navy in the form of the Avenger Strike Fighter. Designed as a ground attack aircraft, the Strike Fighter’s main armament is its massive avenger bolt cannon – ideal for punching through the weaker top and side armour of enemy vehicles. Of course, such a big gun also makes it incredibly useful against enemy air targets too!
I thought one line of this was interesting…
So does the comment “ideal for punching through the weaker top and side armour of enemy vehicles” mean nothing more for a game which does not include ground vehicles…
But will it mean something more in the future?
