Black Bombs are a unit. They make their first and only appearance in Advance Wars: Dual Strike. Black Bombs are remote controlled aerial weapons developed by the Black Hole army and built at an airport. Black bombs deal up to five damage to every unit within a three space radius. Like missiles launched from silos, black bombs are incapable of destroying units, instead leaving them on a minimum of 1 HP.

Fighting Black Bombs can be a difficult task, where possible it's best to shoot them down as soon as possible, as far away as possible. Missile Launchers are probably the best unit to use, given their likelihood to OHK them and their good range. Spreading out the troops much possible will reduce the amount of possible damage inflicted.
Using Black Bombs well can be also be difficult, as they have low fuel and a very high cost. It is more viable to go for a more permanent option (such as tanks and artillery) should potential users be low on funds. Black bombs are most effective when players possess airports close to the enemy, and has the enemy surrounded or at least concentrated in one place. A black bomb or two can instantly transform a difficult battle into a steamroll when used properly.
