Bombardiers do not like to get hit. Not at all. To be hit is an affront that speaks poorly of their ability to anticipate and evade attacks, and is taken as a personal failing. Each hit spurs them to work harder; each evasion drives their focus to new heights of ferocity. Their watchwords are calculation and precision, but they also listen to their instincts.
Those instincts are useful when it’s their turn to take the offensive against ground targets. Indiscriminate bombing runs are for amateurs and dilettantes – the less damage to the goal, the less gold spent replacing ammunition and repairing the target, the more profit to be made. And as everyone knows, mercenaries are all about the profit.
