This is just like it's cousin the balsa. This plane is even slower though. If it did not have such great armor and armament, it would be the worst plane in the game. I would prefer this plane over the balsa because:
1. Better Armor and
2. Better Armament.
The only advantage that the balsa has over this plane is a slight speed advantege.
Overall, if you like turtle planes get this one over the balsa.
