Got it. Flew it twice. Won 2. I had trouble flying it as you demonstrated. Kept falling back on old (bad) habits. But WHEN I did

as you had instructed it was deadly and a lot of fun.  :honoring:

Never let it be said that Magus does not have excellent taste in music (did you kickstart Christopher Tin's "To Shiver The Sky" by any chance? :P)

But a truce to this mournful story

For death is a distant friend

So here's to a life of glory

And a laurel to crown each end

Is this a premium plane? I came across a pair of them last night and they are a handful.  I'd love to get one.

They are gift planes and are not commonly available in the premium shop. Since they were introduced as mission rewards only about two months ago, I don't expect them to be on sale for another six months at least.

 

Dealing with them requires getting close and ripping them apart before they can disengage. High speed BnZs work best at this although anything with a good boost and a decent altitude can make mincemeat of them as long as they get the jump. Don't try to hunt them though - they have the speed and the altitude to keep you at a distance where they can pick you apart at leisure. The best approach is to wait until they're distracted then close in and murder them before they can get away.

Awesome input, thank you very much.
