Real Name: SU-47 Berkut
I do not own a green eagle but have fought against many of them. These suckers just do not die. They have regenerative armor (jokingly called an Invincibility Rating in this altered graphic). Their health is constantly regenerating after you strike them. So much so that the only way you can really kill them is to hit them repeatedly and quickly with Bisnovats or possibly other high damage missiles. If you just have Phoenix, RAAMs or Sidewinders, forgetaboutit, you are going to have a hell of a time taking this green bastard down.
See PLANE COMPARISON TABLES for detailed assessment of all the planes performance ratings.
The youtube video link below will give you an idea as to just how fast this suckers health regnerates. Checkout the video at about the 1 minute 30 second mark - you'll see its health improving very quickly.

So... what to do when you are up against a green eagle??? The achilles heal of the green eagle is that they are as slow as friggin molasses. These tanks just chug along like a tired old turtle. If you are up against one, do not expose yourself by going head-to-head with it. If you have an agility class plane or even a weapons class plane, a close range engagement will stymie the green eagle. You will be able to easily circle around him and catch him from the side or from behind. He will likely attempt to do a run away from you to get out of the circling match, but increase your throttle and stay with him (see maneuvers section of this site). You should easily be able to stay on the rear of this sloth and obtain at least a 0-0 draw. If you can manage to get a kill on him with lower class missiles, let me know (I've never been able to do it). Good luck!!!

I am curious if Z2Live is going to bring back the green eagle - it has not shown up since the switch to the Wingman game.
