Alas - I did not scroll all the way to the bottom of the plane list last night to find this little sucker nestled down there. A new plane is now available once you reach level 50, the Sky Demon has arrived! Modeled after the beautiful lines of the B-2 Stealth Bomber.
Damage: 13%: 4th in class, in the middle of the pack. Tops is Sentinel at 17%
Agility: 14% Tied for First in Class with Cyclops
Speed: A whopping18% makes this First in Class by far (but still slower than agility class planes)
Evasion: 12% is 2nd in class behind Cyclops.
Similar to the Sparrow, the Sky Demon is a weapons class plane taking on agility class boosts in agility, speed and evasion. The agility is nice, the damage is ok, the speed is good and the evasion is good. I'm still not real sure what kind of fight you would wage with these "hybrids". Weapons class planes are typically best a slugging it out at long range. Agility class planes are typically best in close engagements. I guess that this gives you a little of both, but not the best of either. Curious what you all think on this topic!
The Sky Demon has been added to the Comparison Guide and also to the Fleet at a Glance - check it out!
