6 is safer as IIRC implants on 5 of the squad can pop 7 bombs, assuming max bomb skills.

I haven't checked lately so this may now be complete bollox. It was 6-7 last time I did the sums though.

do the maths calculate the resists to that bomb type and then you will know what damage it does and then divide the HP it has by the damage

Done: easy maths

Hmmm funny, i made it 27.45545, but then it all depends how thick the space is.

The light that burns twice as bright burns half as long - and you have burned so very, very brightly..........

6 is safer, but 7 works.

There's bombing implants? What, where?

The actual, correct answer is that the maximum number of bombs per wave is 8.

6 and 7 will work, but 8 bombs is the most you can shoot in a single wave without destroying each other. For reference, check out this vid.

The first wave of bombers performed poorly, so you only see 6 bombs, but the second wave around 1:10 into the vid shows perfect synchronization on 8 bombs that absolutely clusterfucked the TEST Drake fleet they were launched at.

8 If all bombers are using the wrong bomb type, 7 if they are all bonused. Only excess bombs are killed so its really only about efficiency.
