Also keep in mind that the bombardment shown in the videos for E3 was much more powerful than it will be in the final product (though it is still much more powerful than bombing runs).
Oh, that's great news. Thanks alot for answering!
I'm glad the rebellion one isn't a large-scale destruction, you seem like you've nailed it for each of the factions.
