The Blastwing does only a small amount of damage, suitable for taking out Metal Extractors, Lotus or Picket towers, Wind/Tidal Generators and Caretakers, though it can offer a more formidable punch en-masse.

Do not pack them too tightly, as a group of them can chain explode. Blastwings fly close to the ground and can be accidentally set off if they stick around for too long in flame left by other Blastwings.

It can be useful for scouting and laying traps for raiders, and it cloaks when landed.
