History

Delivered at the same time as the Arrowhead Interceptors (around 2065), the Spearhead Bombers went into service at the same time. There are fifty total in service.

Aerohydromic Missiles

The three aerohydromic missiles that each craft is armed with were developed from the silo-based hydromic missiles that are stored at Marineville. Each missile is attached under the aircraft by electromagnetic clamps, and is much more controllable by the Spearhead's weaponry officer, compared to its land-based hydromic cousins. It can also be used as a torpedo if the need arises, and the head is interchangeable (high explosive, atomic, or chemical).
