The Bombers are an African-American gang situated in Empire Bay, mainly in Sand Island and Hunters Point. They deal mainly in drugs, but they are not as influential as the mafia families or the Triads, having to depend on them for their shipments.
They are first encountered the day after Vito Scaletta returns home, when he tries to steal the car for Mike Bruski. Vito can either knock out or kill a gang member that spots him when entering the back lot where the car is located. When stealing the car, fellow gang members spot him and attempt to kill him, and later also attempt a car chase with him.
Their headquarters are in Hunters Point. The Bombers are one of the least encountered gangs in missions, as there are only two missions that involve them. From 1950-51 a gang war had broken out between the Irish and the Bombers. The war weakened both gangs, while the three Italian mafia families profited by hiring members of the Irish and the Bombers to attack each other, effectively playing both sides against one another, while behind the scenes making thousands dollars from the event.
During regular gameplay, if the player robs or shoots up the Lone Star, a bar in the Bomber's territory, it is possible for gangsters from the Bombers to chase after you and shoot you even after you drive away.
