Lancasters are one of the newer ships to be added to the game. Their unique attribute is a bouncing bomb. When fired, the bomb will bounce off nearby walls for a certain number of times before detonating (the number of bounces depends on the zone). Bouncy bombs allow Lancasters to excel at close quarter fighting, and also offer it a great advantage in long range attacks. For this reason, the Lancaster is an extremely versatile ship. Unfortunately, its lack of maneuverability sometimes makes it a difficult to fly well.

The Lancaster has one remarkable feature. Its plasma bombs are timed and thus able to bounce off obstacles allowing the pilot to attack targets not normally available. Lancasters are very useful in closed areas and invaluable in WARZONE games.
