UD-6 Talon (EU)
Type 4 Doragon (PAC)
Gunships are used - mainly - against other flying objects and armored ground vehicles like tanks, battlewalkers or APCs. Talon and Doragon have crews composed of only two soldiers. The first one is the pilot. He's task is to steer the machine and fire anti-armor missiles from the rocket pods. The second crew member (second pilot) uses his anti-personnel machine gun and anti-armor guided rocket launcher.
Mentioned rocket pods used by the first pilot have got as many as ten missiles and it is the maximum amount of projectiles in one barrage. It may be a lethal weapon against heavy machinery and other flying objects. In addition, they can be used to destroy guns that Titan is equipped with. Performing efficient air strikes requires some practice, but well-trained pilot is able to support his teammates fighting on the ground with accurate fire.
Second pilot, using the anti-personnel machine gun and anti-armor guided rocket launcher, has a difficult task too. Fighting against enemy infantry with the machine gun is quite easy, by missile launcher is a toy or professionals only. It is an almost exact copy of TV Guided Missile from Battlefield 2. It works like that - you launch the projectile and then aim at the target by moving the mouse. While aiming, camera is placed on the top of the missile, so you know how it moves and what it hits to the last seconds. This weapon has been projected specially for destroying armored vehicles placed on the ground, but it doesn't mean that it is impossible to attack flying objects with it.
Rockets of both pilots should be always launched at the same time. Hardly ever missile barrage fired from the rocket pods completely destroys the target, so the second pilot has to use his own TV guided missile, aim and fire it at the same target as the first crewmember. Thanks to that, one air strike would be enough to destroy every land vehicle available in the game. However, such teamwork requires lots of hours spent on training.
Warning! Jet-propelled engines installed in these machines cannot turn upside down. As a result, air transport vehicles are unable to fly upside down for a longer period.
Gunships have got Active Defense system, which can be turned on by the first crewmember by pressing the button [X].
Second pilot activates his TV missile launcher view by pressing the right mouse button.
Strong and weak points:
1 - whole gunship. Armor of these vehicles is equal everywhere, so it doesn't matter what we're aiming at.
- Battlewalker takes 33% with one anti-armor bomb;
- Tank takes 100% of energy with one shot;
- One missile from the rocket launcher takes about 100%;
- Rosch Mk-S8 takes about 45%with one shot;
- Gunships take 15% with one rocket;
- About 2 seconds of constant and accurate fire needs an anti-aircraft gun Rosch Kz-27 to destroy an air transport vehicle.
