fighters are always better.
fighters
10X3=30
attack: 3X3=9
defend: 4X3=12

bombers:
15X2=30
attack: 4X2= 8
defend: 1X2= 2

fighters are mathematically always better on attack and defense. but if you need range or have a few extra ipcs. and you need to do a large attack next turn then you would buy bombers. bombers are for the range and sbr and not anything else

I agree with the math. My biggest deal though with extended range on bombers, is i really hate to send bombers someplace without escorts (usually FTR's), so their range becomes less of a bonus cause i really dont want to send them further than my FTR's can escort them.

About the only thing i really see a use for bombers is SBR's. Its basically a rocket attack that you dont have to roll to get, except theres a small chance you lose your bomber. Id rather not roll for a tech, and have a chance at loosing a bomber than the other way around. I hate rolling for tech's. I feel like i'm waisting money every time i do unless i get it the first time which isnt often.

I like to have at least 4 FTR's for each country, even russia when i play them. There just so usefull in so many ways. They open up so many options that straight land troops dont give you. With the other countries i like to have my FTR's on ACC's preferably if i can afford them.

I like buying fighters for russia. Anytime you take a territory from Germany, you're going to loose the troops. Keep the losses to a minimum by using fighters. The hard part is protecting from Japan if they are going strong.
