A bombing run was a tactic used by many factions throughout history, wherein a bomber craft—such as a TIE/sa bomber, BTL Y-wing starfighter, or GAT-12 Skipray Blastboat—would lay a load of bombs across a large surface area. Despite being devastating against closely-grouped enemies, a bombing run could be thwarted by well-placed anti-aircraft defenses.
