Lets take a look at the stats:
Damage +12%: This is Best in Class for Damage, overtaking the Sparrow by 2% and similar to the Sparrow, is comparable to lesser weapons class planes in the damage category.
Agility +13%: In the middle of the pack, but only 2% behind Reaper and Stilletto which are both tops in fleet for agility.
Speed +12%: Tied with 3 other planes for second in class behind Reaper which edges it out by 1%.
Armor +7%: 2nd in class behind Wasp and one of the few agility class planes to have armor upgrades.
Overall, once again, Z2 has pushed the envelope and produced a top agility class plane that is one of the best in class. Identical boost categories as the Reaper (which has been my favorite agility class plane), the Striker is slightly behind Reaper in agility and speed, but packs more damage and has better armor than Reaper. I think that I still like Reaper better since I value speed and agility the most for an agility class plane, but the Striker is a great plane also and has considerable more style than the boring F-4 based Reaper skin. A great new addition to the fleet, although kinda funny that the stealth fighter has no stealth.
The Striker has been added to the Comparison Guide and also to the Fleet at a Glance - check it out!
