There are nine different planes you can fly in the World Destruction League. Each is unique, with its own performance characteristics and special weapons.
The Raider is the basic
training craft in the WDL. Medium speed, medium armor... it's a good balance of
characteristics. Its main weapon is a single barrel machine gun, and the craft is
backed up with the Shotgun Blaster, which can fire a spread of energy bolts out in
front of the plane. The Raider is also stocked with standard Iron Bombs.
The Crusher may be
large and slow, but it is heavily armored, and designed for carpet bombing of ground
targets. Its main cannon is a 100mm Flak Cannon which can do a decent amount of
damage, but its real power is the load of cluster bombs. At full weapon power, the
bomb launcher can send several sprays of 20 bomblets across the terrain per second.
The A-10 has been a
long-time favorite of military forces. Though slow, it can take a pounding and
still fly. Its main armourment is a 30mm Gatling Gun that fires depleted uranium
slugs. The Warthog's special weapon is quite unique... the Vampire Ray fires
out in front of the craft, sucking away the armor from any planes or guns the
beam touches. At full weapon power, the Vampire Ray is the most powerful
dogfighting tool in the WDL... it can take out an enemy plane in just seconds,
while replenishing your own armor at the same time. The Thunderbolt is also
stocked with standard Iron Bombs.
The Dragonfly helecopter
is the only craft in the WDL that is not a jet plane. Though slow and lightly armored,
the Dragonfly is highly manouverable. It can strafe from side to side, even
circling around a target while firing. It has a rapid fire 25mm chain gun, and is
backed up with a load of Swarmers, tiny missiles that swirl out to deal a lot of
damage. The Dragonfly is also stocked with standard Iron Bombs.
The massive ramjet and
rocket boosters on the Rocket Jet make this craft the fastest in the WDL. For weaponry,
the Jet has a medium firerate 25mm Flak Cannon and the Photon Flare. The Flare is
the ultimate close-in weapon... the Rocket Jet emits a blast of energy that damages
anything nearby. Combined with its speed, the Rocket Jet is perfect for fast flybys,
blasting ground targets before their guns can get a lock. It is also stocked with a
load of standard Iron Bombs.
Though lightly armored,
the Nighthawk is both fast and powerful. Its main weapons are the rapid-fire twin
wing-mounted 20mm Machine Guns. Add to the mix the Guided Missiles, which will home in
on an enemy plane or gun, exploding with devestating force. As with most of the WDL craft,
it also carrys a load of standard Iron Bombs.
No one is sure where the
technology behind the UFO came from, but it is the most manouverable craft in the
league. It can come to a complete hover and turn on a dime. It mounts a 5-gigawatt
Pulse Laser, and the powerful Antimatter Torpedo. The torpedo is a chargable but
slow moving energy effect that destroys anything in its path until it runs out of
energy... a fully charged torpedo can go through half a dozen buildings before
fading. Since the weapon is chargable, you can fire out a rapid-fire series of weak
torpedos, or wait for it to build up charge for a much more massive shot. Rounding
out the UFO weapons is a load of standard Iron Bombs.
The Rolling Thunder
originally began as a small bomber... its main weapon is the Hees Incendiary Cannon,
which, though slow on recharge, fires a powerful fireball. For bombing runs, it carries
a load of Napalm Bombs, which spray flaming gasoline jel across the terrain. The designers
of the Rolling Thunder were not satisfied with the crafts bombing capabilities, however,
and added what has become one of the favorite special weapons in the WDL. Officially
known as the Homing Fireball, the fans affectionately call these mini-missiles "Flaming
Homers." Though not very powerful, these fast missiles are constantly correcting their path
to their target, making it possible to even hit targets that have moved behind you after
you got the lock-on signal.
Without a doubt, the
Marauder can cause more raw destruction than any other craft in the league. It is
huge and heavily armored, with a massive 150mm Flak Cannon as its main weapon. Its
the Marauder's bombing capabilty that has made it famous, however. Carrying a supply
of Tactical Nuclear Bombs, it can destroy whole sections of a WDL flight arena in an
