The Strato Destroyer is a heavily-armored air unit, a combination of Fighter and Bomber. Its only vulnerability is the break in its armor on the rear of the plane, where its fuel tank is located. It is one of the few units that can successfully launch an attack against an enemy Battlestation, the others being the Gunship and Bomber. As the first-tier air unit, it is similar to the Battlestation and Dreadnought in terms of power. However, it can't move nearly as well as Fighters.
"Now obsolete due to erratic flight controls, the B-5000 Strato Destroyer was armed with both air-to-air missiles and the ability to deliver a heavy consignment of high-explosive bombs. The only chink in its armor was the lack of significant rear-facing armaments."
