Damage: 10% Tied for best in class with Achilles
Agility: 14% Best in class by far with 4% over Nightwing and actually more agile than most weapons class planes. Even comes close to the Iron Fang in agility class!
Critical Strike: 5% Best in class and first defense class plane to add this boost
Speed: 14% 2nd in class but faster than most weapons class planes
So lets see, a defense class plane with tons of inherent armor and energy, now with good damage, more agile than most weapons class planes and faster than most weapons class planes. Throw in some critical strike and this looks like a tough SOB. I have a feeling that the weapons/defense crowd will like this one. Enjoy!
The Sphynx has been added to the Comparison Guide and also to the Fleet at a Glance - check it out!
Of note: From all of your comments, it sounds like the plane has been switched from defense class to agility class. Also hearing that upgrades from defense class have carried over and that it no longer works in vs. mode. Sounds like Z2 is smoking something. Maybe when they come down from their bad trip, they will resolve this. I am guessing that this switch was some type of mistake and that it will revert back to defense class, but we will see.
