Hornet Unit Overpowered
The bomber is too powerful, it can shrug off an entire line of AA turrets and Stingers and complete it's bombing run. Not even a whole fleet of Hummingbirds can properly take down these things because all they would do was miss. My commander was the only thing that was taking them down before they could reach the factories. It's pretty game breaking consider how someone can just speed build Hornets and win a game in 10 minutes like I did on an AI match.

It's really not as bad as you make it out to be, currently air is best countered by air. In other words, try building peregrines and hummingbirds until balance changes are made. They do not miss if you micro them properly.

I had about 30 Hummingbirds(my Orb Fab was still in production) and they were having troubles taking down the Hornets. They would take down one or two but allowed the others to destroy their targets.

Well, you have to realise that a hornet is a tier 2 unit, and a hummingbird is only tier 1. You should either build more hummingbirds to compensate, or actually use those peregrines for a change.

30 hummingbirds really aren't that much.

It's pretty much impossible to build peregrines if you're going against the AI since they get Hornets in very very early in and considering how they one hit AA turrets and Adv Fab Robots there is no option but to mass build hummingbirds.

Well seeing as the "AI" has yet to be created into something with intelligence it doesnt surprise me that you can take one down in 10 minutes. I dare you to try the same thing in a versus against a human and if you try to rush them out you will be utterly destroyed. Also they are still working on adding units and the orbital part of the game and they have said that beta is when they will be focusing on balance more so than the alpha.
