The Black Eagle is the fighter jet used by the Pacific Front. Being the strongest of the Allied fighters, its cryogenic missiles can make short work on most ground targets.

Official description

The Black Eagle is a status symbol for the Pacific Front, a testament to their undeniable superiority when it comes to aerospace technology.[1]

Overview

Pacific Front's Black Eagle's position as one of the best fighters in the world is uncontested to this day. Black Eagles is armed with a cryogenic missiles to freeze and destroy any target it can find. While Black Eagles don't have the speed, stealth and precision of the Stormchild or the special damage debuff and powerful anti-tank missiles of the Harrier, it makes up for being the most advanced and powerful aircraft in the game. It excels against any ground target, and not many units are able to outrun or dodge its missiles. Its weapon is also capable of dealing splash damage making them ideal against large number of units clumped together.

However, Black Eagle is much more expensive than the two other Allied jets. While tougher, they can't last too long in enemy fire, especially against heavy anti-aircraft defenses.
