I have never used bombs..

From what i see in EFT, you can fit a Bomb luancher and 3 siege luanchers to a Nemesis.

EFT says this should give a volley damage of 10,170 Damage ( With bad torp skills)

Is this correct?
And does anything stop you from firing the bomb, and missles at same time?

Bombs have a very large blast radius, you better make sure you're clear before it goes off.

Bombs are not like normal weapons. You can only carry a very limited number in a bomber and they have a fairly large blast radius (15km) and do that listed damage to everything inside the radius. They travel about 30km in a straight line from where you launch it until it detonates, so you would be best to GTFO after launching.

It's not something that you just shoot at a targeted ship like normal weapons.

Given the extremely limited ammo and unique properties, it's not typical to include bomb launcher DPS when looking at torp damage.

I was ready somewhere that the bombs are to become cheaper? Is this true? I can not find anything in the Dev blogs about this. 6mil+ per bomb is a lot when starting out.

Bomb blasts will pop any missiles you have in the air, so using both at the exact same time tends to be unpractical. Heavy bombers with 3x siege and 1x bomb launcher pretty nice, as it allows you to switch from a tactical dps roll to a strategic roll on the fly. Just watch the fitting restrictions it imposes.

Bombs got massively nerfed in price, they should be sub 1mil now or something along those lines.

Looking at the bomb prices i see that there around 6mil... so you recon I shop around and wait they should be 1mil'ish.

That's a negative. You must be decloaked and on grid for bombs, and torps for that mater, to detonate/hit tatget.

Stupid and somewhat related question: Can bombs be used in lowsec?

Sigh. Wrong.

Oddly common misconception. Once the bomb launches, it is totally independent.

I think there is one exception to this... I have not tried it thought so I am not sure...

The bomb will explode if you cloak and warp off. im not sure what happens if you die before the bomb does.

actually they do dmg just fine, its only your combat log that doesnt update with the damage done if you are not uncloaked and on grid.
