A powerful Anthrax Beta bomb is dropped by plane into the designated area, instantly killing infantry and causing serious damage to vehicles in a wide radius.

Gen1 Anthrax Bomb Icons
The Anthrax Bomb was one of the GLA's most dangerous weapons. It was also highly expensive, and only highly experienced commanders were authorized to use it. The bomb was deployed by air, using one of the few transport aircraft that the GLA had at its disposal. The bomb would explode before reaching the ground, spreading lethal toxins and corrosive agents over a wide area. While causing little damage to buildings, this mix was extremely lethal for infantry and had a noteworthy effect on vehicles, especially those more lightly armored.

The payload of the bomb, regardless of the upgrade, would always be Anthrax Beta (or in Dr. Thrax's case, upgradeable to Anthrax Gamma to increase the lethality of the bomb).

When used by Dr. Thrax in conjunction with Anthrax Gamma, the damage the Anthrax Bomb was capable of doing was only surpassed by a very few weapons, notably the faction super weapons. All infantry would be killed instantly, and due to the incredibly large blast radius, almost all vehicles caught in the blast will eventually turn to slag. Even the mighty Overlord has a very slim chance of surviving if caught in a cramped base or at ground zero of the blast. The substance would also eat away at structures, weakening them and possibly destroying them.
