So have any of you used bombs before?

I'm asking as I'm training only for Frig class ships first and wanted to see if they would be fun.

As it stands now bombs are 10 million per and can deal 8,000 per bomb with max skills.

So does that mean I can equip 3 bombs to a bomber?
24,000 alpha damage could be fun to use at a gate camp.

So any thoughts, and yes I'm really looking at this as fun as isk sitting in wallet is not fun to look at.

I'm dreaming of a red mining op YARRRR!!

Only one bomb launcher per bomber.
Only usable in 0.0

the fun potential is there if you teamup :)

Are you 100% sure or is this an old wives tale and you don't have personal experience on the subject matter?

1. One launcher per bomber and a long reuse time.

2. Bombs take damage from other bombs.

3. Bombs are only resistant to their own damage, so you can't use different bomb types at the same time as the first one blows up the other ones.

4. A bomb can only survive 3 hits by bombs of its own damage type, so the max number of bombs that can be used simultaneously is 4.

5. Bomb damage is reduced by velocity and sig radius, so you don't even pop fast moving frigates.

6. Bombs cost millions approx 10 Mill ISK each, so 4 bombs costs 40 million ISK. The cost Vs reward for bombs isn't worth it.

Poor man's doomsday device. Can be useful in some situations.

ECM bomb and Void bomb are only cost effective bombs.

If a buddy is scrammed and can't warp. ECM BOMB.

If there is a cap ships trying to jump. VOID BOMB

The damage bombs are MEH, good for killing fighters/drones.

totally useless piece of "feature" by CCP. Why? cause you would only wanna use it against blobs as a strategic maneuver, not single ships or small gangs. Problem? When there is blob there is lag, when there is lag, you will die before you get to activate your bomb launcher.

Had this a few times to my fleet. Bombs are ****in useless crap.
