C-101 Annihilator

C-101 Annihilator:  Agility Class
Real name:  Chungdu J-10



Real life pict of a Chungdu J-10




When I started playing, the C-101 was the starter plane that beginners were supplied with.  I believe that this is still the case.  This agility class plane is quick and nimble.  My recommendation for beginners is as follows:

1.  If you like speed and agility, stick with this plane for awhile and make some upgrades.  This plane doesn't have very good armor but it is quick and nimble and difficult for your opponent to hit.  Upgrades are very important though.  Flying a non-upgraded plane will severely limit your planes performance and cost you alot of wins.  With the Annihilator, you will be faster than many of your opponents and be able to out-circle them and catch them from behind or to the side.   See PLANE COMPARISON TABLES for detailed assessment of all the planes performance ratings.

2.  If you like to weather attacks better with thicker armor and like to have your planes weapons be more lethal, upgrade to the F-7 Wraith.  The Wraith is a formidable plane when upgraded and can even take down much more expensive planes with the right pilot behind the stick.  The Wraith will be slower than the Annhilator though - it is a trade off - you can't have it all!  Either go with speed or go with weapons/armor!

If you choose the Annihilator,  try to avoid too many long distance engagements.  The Annhilator, like most agility class planes, is a better close quarters dogfighter than a long distance missile shooter.

The Annihilator has a special spot in many players hearts as it is the plane most of us learned to fly with.  Good luck pilot!

  1. I personally am only using this plane in VS mode. It is probably one of the more underestimated planes simply due to the fact that it only has +5% agility and is a starter plane, but if you see it in the hands of an ace, run and run fast!! Fully upgraded, it is surprisingly agile, and can take down higher ranked players in higher ranked agility planes (like the Mako/Thresher/Spectre) when it is in the right hands.

    This is the preferred plane of ace players who know what they are doing and want to boast "Hey, look here, I'm in a basic plane and can STILL whoop you!!". I use the C-101+stock in versus matches, and it seriously surprises people when I beat them when they have superior weapons and planes. This is also a great training plane for aspiring Agility aces. I actually started using this plane AFTER having purchased and fully upgraded the Eagle-X, Thresher, D-112, and Hawken, and I currently only use it (even though I plan to go back to using the Mako/Spectre later). And my C-101 is still missing two of the 20 coin upgrades on the bottom left of the tree.

    All in all, great little plane if you are super skilled and want to surprise the crap out of a person! And if you fly well in it against an ace, serious respect points are earned in your favor, the effect of which is multiplied tremendously if you are also using stock weapons.

  2. THANK YOU!!!!!!!!!! So many people underestimate the Annihilator. It is among the few planes that just really intrigue me. I agree with you that it really frustrates a person with better planes and weapons when you kick their butts. And people that use Bisnos and Zeus really tic me off. They are basically cheating, so I only use standard weapons or sometimes RAAMs. My name is {EA} Mercenary. Cuold I possibly friend you?

    1. Ya the Annihilator is a good plane for starters. It's quick good agility plane. I don't use it that much because i got the arbiter it is great but the annihilator is great too. Upgrade is very important .A very good plane with no upgrade is worse than a bad plane with upgrade.

  3. What do you think of the D-21 Falcon? I have one and I think it is a piece of crap. It is hardly more agile than a tempest and has no armor. Add me : Lonah 1 or lonah 1.

    1. yo! i only have 3k SR, but i've been looking to battle someone with an SR like yours. I know it'll most likely be no contest, but let me know if youre interested

  10. So... I bought this airplane recently and I must say it's much better than the Tempest. It has no armor but has amazing mobility! I'm hoping it's really worth the investment.

    Can I please add some pilots so I will have a better chance to win in the campaigns? Thanks :D

  13. Question: should I upgrade the annihilator all the way or what's the next best plane to purchase instead of wasting any credits and coins?

    1. The best choice is to buy the arbiter. Then upgrade it. when it's fully upgrade you could buy another one and do the same thing.

  16. C101 Annihilator- made in china. No wonder it's junk.

    After I got sick of it, I got a d21 falcon.

  17. Hey, you, the c-101 is a great plane, and if you think it's junk, try playing against this 24k SR guy named :(Pinker:(. He whooped my ass and I lost... In A DRAGON!!!!!!!!!!

  18. Actually, the plane we all learned to fly in was the FA/88 Hurricane. It was the tutorial plane.

    2. If you downloaded the game before the Hurricane was released, it was the thresher.

  19. They should have made the fa-88 hurricane the starter plane.
