Other Weapons Class Planes

Here are a few additional weapons class planes that were either limited edition or fell off the selection list over time:


F-41 Viper
Real name: F-18 Superhornet

A lower mid-level weapons class plane. Not much to get excited about here. One reader on this blog has the notion that this is a green eagle killer and has some sort of special powers against the green turtle.  I don't see any evidence to support this, but who knows ;-)

F-41 Viper


S-03 Saber

This plane is equal to the Hawken on weapons stats plus has lock range of +5%, however Hawken has much greater agility.   If you think that lock range is more important than agility (which I don't personally), then get the Saber.

S-03 Saber

  1. Are you sure they have the same agility?

    2. I agree with DelOngest. The red widow looks terrible. I like the plane model of it though, just not it's paint job.

    1. Most likely the currency system used in metalstorm I believe, so either credits or coins :D

      Delete
    2. Pardon me, it costs 6.5k

    3. The viper isnot bad but has poor energy

      Delete
  8. New info, Viper and Saber are back!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Viper is at 30 coins :( (still bought it for collection purposes) and the saber at 205 coins. Both are featured and probably won't stay long. Now I'm wondering if I should get the saber.

    1. Now that the Saber and Viper have been re-released, there are no more discontinued planes.

    2. Green eagle

    3. Spectre (very good)

  9. I am considering purchasing it as my first Weapon class plane. I'm a fairly new pilot that only has a Tempest ATM, but I'm aiming to try the Annihilater and either the Wraith or Viper.

    Can someone please recommend a good plane for a new beginner to use for grinding exp and credits and for campaign and survival mode? I don't think I can ever be able to dogfight another human pilot.

    Many thanks :D

    Also, can I add some pilots so I can have a easier time in campaign mode? Tyvm.

    1. So... I just bought the Annihilater, ran it in the first mission and OMG... the PLANE is AWESOME! Much more than the Tempest. I just realized that speed and agility is all you need to stay alive. I think I will just stay in this plane for now and continue to upgrade it. However, I'm still considering purchasing the Viper. 8 more coins to go...

      Delete
    2. If you upgrade the viper than you won't need the Hawken or Sentinel.

      Delete
    3. GET THE BOBCAT OR RAIDER. if you like the tempest and annilator they will blow you away.

      Delete
  10. Good news for those of you who were deciding if you were going to buy the saber(not many) it is now at a deducted price! 160 coins!!!! I know fakethor and others will be pissed.

    ReplyDelete
  11. okay, for some strange reason the saber seems to have a 4 percent armor regen when i upgraded it even though it's a weapon class. lucky me.

    ReplyDelete
  12. I have both of them, both from the re-release, the viper, for it's stats amazed me, so I saved for the saber, it didn't so much, get it if you are in need of a weapons class, but my advice is, stick with the paladin, I have it and it's formidable

    ReplyDelete
  13. Seconded for the Paladin. My opinion ain't worth much - I am only in the high 4Ks in skill level; however my learning curve has been exponential since getting the Pal. My win-rate has improved too.

    ReplyDelete
  14. What? My viper is still a featured plane, in a red box, and it's July, I've had it for 2 months, and my saber is now blue?
    Z2 please fix this! :)

    1. I fly it, and if I ever come to verse you, man, you r toast.

  18. I fly this plane and it helped me beat attack on port crescent, not bad for a lower level weapons c. Then, again, I used Bisnovats and Zeus to help me complete this. Duh...

  19. The Viper is a damn good plane for campaign. I finished mission 5 with this thing using stock missiles and cannons :D

    ReplyDelete
  20. The Viper was always amongst my favorite and most admired aircraft. I have killed a Hurricane(fastest n most accurate gunslinger), and a sentinel(most lethal plane) with viper.I lost against defense eagle 4-3. But at least I koed him three times :).

    I finished all campaign with no ressurections with viper with pheonixes and Valkyrie.

    I also upgraded this sucker before I upgraded my defense eagle.

  21. I have this plane and it turns faster than the eagle x.

  22. Is the Saber really a F- 35 Lighting II? If so, I would like to buy one.

    1. The viper has a hidden 15% damage against the green eagle. The green eagle worst enemy is the viper. Planing to get it.
