Yes, the Tali needs to be working for SQ42: in general the state of bombers is quite messed up atm.

The Harb lost the belt-fed reload system and it's stuck with 3 S5 torps due to size reasons ( what it's supposed to do, do deep space, long range strike missions to take down Caterpillars? because I can't see it destroying bigger ships),which leaves the Tali as the sole long range bomber but they need to work a lot on it.

Let's remember PVE is the biggest part of gameplay and since they're military ships for military targets those are the guys they're supposed to hunt

Good luck with 3S5 torps......

Not really - its primary role of the Harbinger was never a Bomber...... like a Tali / Eclipse and Gladiator.......... its primary role is Heavy Fighter (it is "still a Vanguard")....... so it will essentially be a "Warden" with heavier armor...... and 3 S5 Torps......... still not bad and if it were to do a 1v1 vs something like a Tali it would probably win.

Another thing to consider is that the Harbinger.... used to be a BUK (a cheap addition to the standard Warden)....... but now each BUK is actually a completely separate variant ship.......... so those that picked them up at the concept sale (all the BUKs) ended up with a lot of cheap variant ships (not just optional components)....... which also makes a it a better "deal" than the Tali from a cost perspective.

I don't know Voa... if I want to do fighter stuff, I use the Warden, if I take out the Harb I am bombing...

 

Besides on the store page it says "Vanguard Harbinger -Bomber", then you have " The Vanguard Harbinger is Earth’s standard fighter-bomber, converting the standard Warden model’s escape pod into a potent bomb bay. The extended range of the Vanguard and the relatively small profile mean that it can go where carrier-based planes or larger strategic bombers don’t… and then strike hard and make it back to frontier bases. The Vanguard Harbinger is a powerful bomber that can operate out of the roughest forward operating bases. "

It really looks like a bomber to me.

....eh..... well the Polaris and Javelin are "Bombers" as well right (with massive Torpedoes)......... but that doesn't mean that it is their "primary mission"

The way I see it is both the Gladiator and Harbinger are "Light Bombers"........ with the Harbinger being just as good as a Warden (perhaps better with the Heavy Armor) + a few extra Torpedoes to boot.

The Eclipse is more of a Medium / Stealth Bomber...... and is more maneuverable than the Tali.....

With the Tali being a Heavy Bomber.   I do hope they give the Tali the rotating torpedo launcher options (with more torps) like the Eclipse).

I ended up with Every Bomber they produced to date...... but ended up CCUing the crossed out Bombers below........ but it won't stop me from picking up a Volper Xian Bomber when they come out with that.....   - but you can see I have "too many" bomber still (even with CCUing my Gladiator and Tali)

  • Gladiator
  • Harbinger
  • Eclipse
  • Volper
  • Retaliator
  • Polaris
  • A-2 Starlifter
  • Javelin

So many bombers, but nothing to bomb.

I wish CIG would add some new missions to the PU with hostile NPC large ships, so players could finally use our bombers for something (other than griefing). There are plenty of large ships in the PU now and tons of possibilities. There could be mission to track down a hijacked Starfarer and the player could blow it up with torpedoes. Or a mission tracking down pirates and you find them flying a Pirate Caterpillar. And then there's the Vanduul. What about a multi-part mission involving S&D-ing Vanduul raiders that culminates in the appearance of a small Vanduul cap ship, which can only be destroyed using torpedoes.

If there were things to bomb in the PU, I'm certain there'd be much greater demand for the Tali rework.

      Updated with next batch of ships and prices.  
      When I started my Star Citizen journey in 2012 I was a single gamer.  In the years since I have become married and now about to have my second child in about 3 - 5 weeks.  Real life has Priorities and I have determined I just don't have the time to commit to this game that I once did.  All of these ships are Original Concept - LTI.  All sales will be done over PayPal and the buyer pays the 4.5% fee.  I have had a long history on these forums and have done a lot of trades on this forum,  Reddit with Kane, and Shroud of the Avatar Forums.  If you would like we can also use a third party middleman.  I would prefer Kane as I have worked with them in the past.  
      If you are interested please PM me.  I have confirmed that all ships listed are Original Concept - LTI and giftable. I can also post images if you would like.  Seems kind of tedious to do though for something that can be pulled from any unverified source.  On another note I do still plan on playing.  I have another dozen or so ships that I have purchased third party that are currently not giftable.  The math gets wonky though with having to factor in credit resell values after melting and buying back with new funds.  In any case.  I will continue to monitor game development and hope to see you all in the verse.

      I really, really don't want to do this, but I just found out we're expecting our first child and we need renovate our house.  My priorities have suddenly shifted     I am selling 15 different ships that I purchased, all with LTI (Lifetime Insurance). That means if you get blown up, your ship is replaced for free! This is so sought after because ships like the Vanduul Scythe are not available for purchase and must be captured to fly. This is essentially the completionist package ($15,000) without the Idris, and some of the other perks.  The big difference is these ships all come with LTI!    There is a 'gift' method within the RSI website.  I would gift each of these to your account.   Summary of what you get (15 ships, 5 skins, and more!): Rear Admiral Package - LTI Vanduul Scythe – LTI Hornet with F7C-M Super Hornet upgrade– LTI (Also Military Upgrade) Freelancer with DUR upgrade - LTI 5 skins (false colors, blackbeard stealth, military, exploration, electro hull) 350r – LTI Gladiator – LTI Starfarer – LTI M50 – LTI Pirate Pack (Cutlass) – LTI Avenger – LTI Caterpillar – LTI Retaliator – LTI Aurora LN – LTI Banu Merchantman – LTI Xi-An Khartu Scout – LTI   Included with the Rear Admiral Package: RSI Constellation Lifetime Insurance Signed Deluxe Silver Collector's Box Spaceship-shaped USB Drive CD of Game Soundtrack Glossy Fold-up Star Map 5 Spaceship Blueprints 3 Inch Model of Spaceship Hardback Making-of Star Citizen Beta Access Alpha Access Squadron 42 Digital Download Star Citizen Digital Download Starting Money:10,000 UEC Starting Hanger: Deluxe   Included with the Pirate Pack:  Drake Cutlass Docking Collar Tractor Beam Lifetime Insurance Skull and Crossbones Skin   Price is $12,000   I know the price is high, but it's something I have to do.  Feel free to pm me with any questions.
