"You'd think putting wings on a castle would result in disaster, but those rules don't apply to the Flying Fortress. With a payload of Skeleton Gliders, this aerial acropolis delivers punishing bombardments."

Level 1-5




  • Treat a Flying Fortress like how you would treat a Siege Machine in the Home Village. Although not containing any Clan Castle troops, the Flying Fortress can be used to wipe out most defenses alone.
  • Consider supporting a Flying Fortress with Rocket Balloons. The Flying Fortress can soak up defensive fire for the Balloons, allowing them to quickly devastate defenses and cover the Flying Fortress in return. This works especially well when tackling Air Defenses and Rapid Rockets, both specialized anti-air defenses that can deal significant damage to either when used on their own.
  • One should be wary when attacking an Inferno Tower, as the single-target damage can quickly destroy the Flying Fortress. Consider having a Lightning Spell or two on hand to stun the Inferno Tower and reset its damage; if Hog Raiders have been unlocked, they provide a situational (but longer-lasting) alternative in the Hog Glider's stun.
    • If the Flying Fortress is damaged beforehand and has released Skeleton Gliders, the Gliders and their spawned Skeletons can distract the Inferno Tower momentarily. Should the Flying Fortress continue to sustain damage via other sources (such as a nearby Air Defense) and release more Gliders, these spawns can continue to stall the Inferno Tower and possibly prevent it from locking on until they run out.


  • Inferno Towers can devastate a Flying Fortress easily; however the Skeletons that the fortress spawns can in return destroy Inferno Towers without a struggle. Be sure to keep splash defenses/traps (or a Super Wizard Tower) around to deal with the horde of Skeletons.
  • Space the anti-air defenses (Air Defenses and Rapid Rockets) evenly around the district; if an area is too light on such defenses while being too ground-heavy, it can prove inviting for a Flying Fortress-based attack.
