Carpet Bombing Extended is a mod for (vanilla) Supreme Commander that allows all Tier 1 and Tier 2 bombers to carpet bomb enemy units and structures by ordering them to fly over it. When told to patrol or to attack a target, they do it as normal, without dropping bombs along the way. Ordering them to assist a unit or structure also works.

When admiralzeech made the original Carpet Bombing mod, he did not give carpet bombing ability to the UEF’s Tier 1 Scorcher Attack Bomber, instead giving it to their Janus Tier 2 Fighter/Bomber.

I felt that this put the UEF at a disadvantage in Tier 1, because not only do they have terrible Tier 1 anti-air defences, but now also have less able bombers than the other factions. I have simply given Scorchers carpet bombing ability, and have changed nothing else. For balance, Scorchers now drop three bombs instead of five per salvo, and do very slightly more damage.

Note that Supreme Commander already allows T3 Strategic Bombers to attack targets of opportunity they are flying over with targeted strikes, not with a carpet bombing, and this was not changed.
