U-9 Raider

U-9 Raider:  Agility Class
Real name:  SU-27 Flanker

Current U-9 Raider



Old version of the Raider sans speed boost

The Raider is a lower end agility class plane that basically has slightly better performance than the C-101.  Agility has been bumped up but is still not as high as the Thresher, Talon or Marauder.  The Raider also got an unannounced speed boost somewhere along the way by Z2 (see smaller pict of previous version).   My recommendation would be to stick with the C-101 and use those 65 coins towards upgrades of the C-101 or save up for a Thresher or Reaper.   Investing much coins and effort into the Raider just doesn't seem to be a worthwhile endeavor in my opinion.  As always, if you have a different opinion, please chime in!  :-)

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

  1. Lol. This agility plane portrays Su-27 that carries eight tonns of weapons. The only one ingame plane that portrays more weapon oriented machine is Paladin.

    1. Wave 10? That's just sad. I only have the upgrades that cost credits and I got to wave 13.

    5. If the c101 is better than the u-9, and I got to wave 17 in the u-9 raider, I must have better skills than you since I got to a higher wave in a worse plane
