I'm consdering buying this plane, as I think it is really cool looking. I know it is a boom-n-zoom. How does it rate in the current patch? Is it worth getting or no? Thanks!

It used to suck, but after they buffed the guns its now around about what you would expect from a premium plane, slightly lower than a normal plane for its tier but adequate to the point of being dangerous in the right hands.  You just need to be aware that it is more zoom than boom.

I like it but it is definitely a gimmicky plane. With a full tank of boost you can outclimb and outrun many other folk... good for either spotting in the beginning of a match or kiting. (I love kiting in this thing)... the tradeoff is the weak guns and truck-like turning. It does at least have a cannon on it, but if you get on the tail of a heavy, the guns will overheat before you've killed it more often than not. ALSO: It is not easy to burn off speed in it, so... avoid pointing it at the ground.


Just think of it as a racing plane that happens to have some guns slapped on it. :P

I wouldn't pick it up. You might hurt your back.

If I had it to do all over again, would not buy this airplane. Perhaps in the right hands, it's capable enough. Mine are not the right hands.

My main problem with it are keeping the guns on target long enough to kill anything but the weakest, most damaged targets. It's plenty fast, lots of boost, but handles like a Mississippi River Boat. Takes what seems like forever to turn it around or otherwise maneuver. What you are left with is an airplane that can harass the heck out of the enemy but very little else.

Its quite the Heavy Fighter killer. You can essentially out speed and out boost any tier 5 in the game, and although it turns like a brick with rocket booster, it still can out turn the Heavies Fighters. That's where you can shine, high alt interceptor. Most Heavy fighters will think they are safe at 2000 - 2500 meters when you come bursting out of nowhere. And even though the guns are decent, remember your best weapon with this plane is its super high speeds, acceleration, and climb rate. Just don't get stuck in turn fights, that's where it will get chewed up. Its a very specific play style, but if you master it, its quite deadly.


So in a nut shell:


-Super Fast!! like really.. super fast

-Super accelleration

-Super Climb rate! Also like.. really, super fast



-Not so Super Turn Rate (can still out turn the heavies though)

-Medium Guns

-Average hitpoints


So if you like BnZ, this plane is a yes.


If you like Turn and Burn, there might be some other options out there that are also quite appealing :) such as the M20


Pew Pew Pew, ratatatata!
