The Stormchild is the fighter jet used by the United States. It relies on its fast speed and laser guns to precisely strike threats and evade attackers.

Description

The Stormchild is an advanced air superiority fighter specifically equipped to efficiently deal with fast moving targets. With its high-tech lasers and powerful targeting systems, it is theoretically impossible for the fighter to miss its target. Its plentiful missiles benefit from the targeting systems as well, though they cause less damage individually than comparable warheads. Although the Stormchild is one of the fastest fighters in the Allied arsenal, it is rather fragile in the face of anti-aircraft fire. Due to a low radar cross-section, the fighter is invisible on radar, giving the Stormchild the element of surprise.

Overview

The Stormchild is an all-purpose aircraft, being the fastest (although lightly armored) of all the Allied fighter jets. Though its missiles are less effective against vehicles and buildings compared to its Allied counterparts, it is completely accurate, meaning not even the fastest vehicles (which are common in the mid game, where the Stormchild is also available) are able to evade its attacks and of course, the Stormchild itself.

Its other primary advantage is its laser guns, which are just as precise as its missiles. These laser guns are able to burn even the most durable of heroes, which makes a squadron of Stormchildren the deadliest aerial assassins in the Allied arsenal, if not the game. Combined with its radar invisibility, it ensures that Stormchildren can strike with lethality, then fleeing the scene with a very late reaction from the enemy commander.

American commanders should take note that using either of its weapons will both consume the Stormchild's ammo capacity, meaning it cannot fire both weapons twice in a single run.

Assessment

Pros

  • Invisible on radar.
  • Fastest of the three Allied fighter jets.
  • Able to accurately strike fast-moving targets.
  • Precision lasers are effective against infantry.
  • Can minimize AA damage if the commander micromanages well.

Cons

  • Very fragile.
  • Its missiles deal less damage compared to other warheads.
  • Has to return to airfields for rearming frequently.
