Real name: F-35X Lightning
The Marauder is a premiere choice for agility class planes - nice to see that it has been brought back. Simply put, the artwork is bad ass. When you are flying a Marauder, it is as if you are saying, "C'mon, sucker, try and mess with me!"
As for performance, the Thresher is actually slightly faster than the Marauder but the Marauder has better evasive characteristics when you are being shot at. The only other real difference from a Thresher is that the Marauder has a slightly higher critical strike rating.
Lets be serious though, you aren't really buying this plane over the Thresher for the slight performance differences - its all about that bad ass skull with those 2 crossed missiles in the background!
See PLANE COMPARISON TABLES for detailed assessment of all the planes performance ratings.
