The Rapier is a level 2 gunship aircraft; it has a unique way of engaging targets: swinging around them within a fixed distance like a pendulum while pelting them with rockets. It is effective against surface units that are not anti-air, and in high numbers can also destroy light anti-air defences such as missile towers; however due to its way of attack it is very prone to getting hit even by non-antiair weaponry, and is useless against other aircraft. Its ARM counterpart is the Brawler.

Commander's HandbookEdit

CORAPE OLD
Gunship “RAPIER”
This gunship carries rockets for shooting ground units. It is heavily armored.

Factional differencesEdit

In comparison to the ARM Brawler, the Rapier has a slower turn rate and acceleration, and hence a slower pendulum motion. This makes it slightly more vulnerable than the Brawler to non-Anti-Air units, such as tanks that may successfully land stray shots on the aircraft. However, this is compensated by the fact that Rapier's rockets do far more damage than the Brawler's EMG cannons. This makes the Rapier better suited for structural raids and hit-and-run attacks against slower and more armoured units than the Brawler.
