A large bomb obliterating almost any target close to impact. Make sure to clear the area. Big Booms!

— Ship Management Terminal

This Eagle stratagem drops a single large bomb that explodes and does massive damage in a vertical pillar within a very small AoE. When called, Eagle-1 will arrive in the direction you threw the stratagem ball (bouncing the stratagem ball may change the direction).
