An early heavy bomber aircraft of the sort that was historically fielded in 1915-1918 during the Great War. It is equipped with a pair of mounted machine guns, and it is also able to drop anti-vehicle bombs on targets below. One of the crew, the pilot, drives the plane and also mans a machine gun. A second crew member, referred to as the observer, also mans a machine gun and serves as the bomb dropper's eyes. The last member of the crew, when conditions are acceptable, drops the bombs themselves. A bomber has a range of 600 miles on a full tank of gasoline.

Multiattack. The WWI bomber aircraft makes two heavy machine gun attacks. It may then drop a bomb.

Heavy Machine Gun: Ranged Weapon Attack +8 to hit, range 400/1,200 ft., one target. Hit: 22 (5d8) piercing damage. The heavy machine gun has the burst fire and reload (100 shots) properties. A WWI bomber aircraft comes with 2,000 rounds of ammunition.

25 lb. Bomb: One of the bomber's crew drops a bomb beneath the plane. The area of the bomb as a projectile is a 5-foot wide cylinder originating from the center of the bomber, extending towards the ground. If the crew member wishes to directly strike a target within the cylinder, he may make a ranged weapon attack with +8 to hit against a creature or object within the area. On a hit, the bomb explodes on a point centered on the target. On a miss, or if no intermediate target was designated, the bomb falls to the ground and explodes. Each creature within 30 feet of an exploding bomb must make a Dexterity saving throw, taking 42 (12d6) bludgeoning damage on a failed save, or half as much damage on a successful one. Objects and structures take double damage from the bomb. A WWI bomber aircraft comes with 14 25 lb. bombs.
