Every time i play as the attacker in 'beneath the baleful eye' i lose.
Any Tactics or Strategy?
I am really confused about this!

You can let your guys pick up the bomb things near the attacker's start position; direct the carriers towards a wall and it will be breached (killing anyone around the explosion, so don't send your main army right away). Alternatively, the gun encampments can be overrun with the right tactic; attacking from several angles usually works.

Using the bombs comes with multiple problems:
  • They're slow. Really slow.
  • Their blast radius is generally inconvenient.
  • Making a breach that doesn't just expose you to turret fire anyway is pretty much impossible.
  • Your best best for killing a gun encampment is using two bombs and consumes manpower like you wouldn't believe.
  • A human player will have no problem whatsoever taking out a bomb, getting a series of free kills from MWs that drop everything to pick one up.
  • You have to defend the bombs from advancing greens who can just detonate the bombs, ruining your strategy completely.
    • Bear in mind that they start with well over 200 free MWs in their main base and 2 armours.
    • They can advance with MWs in each encampment.
    • Only the armours fail to respawn.
