T-18 Cyclone

T-18 Cyclone:  Weapons Class
Real name: Panavia Tornado

The T-18 Cyclone is a mid level weapons class plane.  I do not own a Cyclone but have been successful in defeating them with the Thresher, Hawken and Eagle.   I am not convinced that 145 coins is worth it for this plane.  There are really no outstanding performance features that I can see.  I would recommend the F-113 Eagle over the Cyclone any day.   If any readers have experience flying the Cyclone, please let us know your thoughts on its performance.

See PLANE COMPARISON TABLES for detailed assessment of all the planes performance ratings.

A real Panavia Tornado


  1. The plane handles like a three-legged elephant. It's good for fighting crappy Tempests and Annihilators and Wraiths but a bad seed overall. The lock range and speed helps a bit in versus battles but doesn't hold a candle to the top-tier planes.

  2. It gives me a challenge when i fly it. Just a wraith with a bit more punch

  3. As the proud owner of a Panavia Tornado, I can honestly say I only got it because it's among my favorite modern fighters.

    In terms of the T-18's performance... I upgraded it quite a bit, but probably won't go beyond getting the 40% damage reduction feature. This isn't going to be used much outside campaign or survival mode. It just doesn't have the reload speed or the agility I come to depend on from the Hawken. It really doesn't live up to my expectations.

    I'm glad I have it, but really paid more than it was worth.

    1. are you kidding? most European planes are crap. they have no stealth like the American F-22/F-35.

      the next best planes is the russian Su-47.

    2. Actually some European Planes are nice,like the eurofighter,rafale and the saab 39 grippen.

  4. I have the t18 fully upgraded I own a lot of weapons planes fully upgraded judged by the helix pladan saber cobalt and hawken the t18 isn't as bad as it looks I played vs with this plane my skill is 5700 and I was able to get draws and wins more times than I lost the only plane I had trouble with is the thresher but don't get me wrong this is a great plane

    I don't know, because I own a few weapons class planes, such as the Paladin, Hawken, Eagle, and those have never ended up failing my expectations. but I am curious if this is worth it like the M-11 Raven I got for also 145 coins.
    P.S., I personally think that the rest of the 145 coin planes are slight ripoffs because for the price they do not have anything that actually makes the high price worth it. so if you want a decent 145 coin plane, either wait for more to come out ( not so likely to happen) or just buy the Raven. It can actually get you somewhere in survival like the Dragon.

  6. I enjoy what you guys are usually up too. This sort of clever work and
    exposure! Keep up the awesome works guys I've incorporated you guys to our blogroll.
