Heavy Fighters

Jump to: navigation, search

These “hunters” offer the advantages of heavy armament and good airspeed. Heavy fighters feature poor maneuverability and dynamics, but prove deadly in diving attacks. They often carry a rear gunner for defensive purposes. Some heavy fighters can also be successfully used as fighter-bombers.

While they have poor maneuverability they usually boast an array of accurate nose-mounted heavy weaponry capable of shredding fighters in a few seconds. For the majority that have two engines the power output gives them great boost length, as such, using them for vertical combat (Boom and Zoom) is usually the best tactic. Their large hitpoint pool also makes them ideal for attacking enemy ground attack aircraft without being affected by the rear gunner fire as much as fragile light fighters. While many heavies are able to carry an impressive amount of external payloads rivaling even ground attackers, making the heavy fighter a true jack-of-all-trades, using these will hinder your flight performance.

Heavy Fighters appear as green or red rhombuses with a black dash through it at a 45 degree angle on the mini-map and over target marker.
