How is Darkstorm to be attacked?

Weird things happened when I tried.   Attacking units moved up close to unit instead of standing off at max range; and they did not fire at all.

Darkstorm killed my Bishop with one shot.

    Wow... If you had read the info for darkstorm you would have known it produces an aura that stops the units firing on it as they CANNOT see it until up close and personal.... to kill it you need to know the game and certain units.... I. E cerberus

    More correctly put: it reduces the range of your units by 75%... or more.

    I could not remember the actually reduction so said it as I did :)

    I had better luck with going around it.  Took Jugger, Sunder, my own darkstorm and 5 sharpshooters and went to the far left killed that side, then the far right.  Keep going back and forth avoiding the darkstorm.  I did use two maverick missles to take out the front watchtowers that have dracons in them.  There are also some good youtube videos on how to do it.

    What base were you hitting?   The one for Elite or Omega Darkstorm?     I was hitting the one to get Darkstorm parts.

    So how should it be attacked?      With four Cerebus to draw fire from it, and then something else to hit it with?    What is good?   Sunder and/or Vindicator?    Jugg?     Just target the Darkstorm and let the units get as close as they want?

    To kill the Darkstorm, send in about 3-5 Cerberus to lure the darkstorm away from reach of its base defenders. Then let all the Cerberus attack it. Then send in Romero to further kill it while it's busy shooting the cerberus drones.

    Then, you can try to add 1 or 2 additional Cerberus as a protection against the Darkstorm as that should increase the max amount of drones and the drone spawn rate.
