The Smoke Bombs is a support power for the Latin Confederation accessible through the Battle Lab. It calls in a Sandstorm bomber that drops a series of smoke bombs in a carpet-bombing pattern on the target location for a long period of time, temporarily reducing the firepower of enemies caught in the smoke runs.
The AI will use Smoke Bombs on the largest enemy unit blob present. Ignores cloaked targets.
- Two Sandstorm bombers appear at airstrip in Killing Fields.
- The Smoke Bombs is first usable in the campaign in Exist to Exit.
- In Meltdown (except on Mental difficulty), with integrating Latin Confederation arsenal to use, the Smoke Bombs is usable by the player, even though the player's subfaction is Russia, without need of Battle Lab.
Behind the scenes
- In 3.0 Smoke Bombs used the default Soviet Cargo Plane instead of the current Sandstorm. It was also free of cost and had a 30 second shorter recharge time, giving Latin Confederation generals more liberty to use the said support power.
