Why can't LBFG direct target like BFGX?

With BFG-X you could hold down A and fire at the ground and let the splash do the killing.  Is this a level 10 power for LBFG or do we just not get this feature in the legendary version?

    Unfortunately, the Leg. BFG does not have the ground targeting ability which makes the unit more similar to the standard BFG compared to the BFG X.

    I do agree that it's a bit unfortunate that the Leg. BFG doesn't have the ground targeting ability unlike with the BFG X and a similar argument can also be made with the Gunship and Spectre/Archangel.

    No, the Judge has never had the ability to target a specific ground location. The only units with this ability are the Spectre, Archangel, Phantom and BFG X if units with certain types of limited use tactics are excluded.

    What we need  is a BFG-X Mk II with ground targeting and no pvp only restrictions.

    Thanks a lot for the info as it appears that my original assumptions were wrong.

    For a more correct list, the units that can target a given ground location are the Spectre, Archangel, BFG X, Phantom and Judge.

    I don't think this ability would improve this type of aircraft that much due to that this unit type is mainly used as a fast bomber to take down a very specific target and not to shoot ground and then hopefully damage the target. It would instead be much better if the Envoy or Herald had the ground targeting as a ability due to these units has either a relatively large AoE or long range.
