The Aegis class of fighters is the main line of fighters in the Raiden Fighters series. The first game has the Aegis, with the designation GD-1. The second and third games has the alternative fighter called Aegis IV, which the only difference is the color of its laser weapon and a gray-colored nose. The secret Aegis II-C appears only in Raiden Fighters 2: Operation Hell Dive, and has different capabilities from the other fighters in its class.

Aegis II-C

Aegis II-C is a camouflage-colored variant of Aegis IV, with different weapon plans. Occasionally, Aegis II-c is the plane that sometimes joins you in the Allied Airport Stage (sometimes two even), fighting alongside you as a CPU, but can get gunned down, but if it survives, you get a 1,000,000 points. It respectively appears first in Raiden Fighters 2: Operation Hell Dive as a hidden fighter, but reappears in Raiden Fighters Jet as one of Aegis IV's altered colors.

It is also an all-around fighter like it's counterpart, the Aegis IV, average in everything, for firepower and defense. Aegis II-C's Enhanced Rapid-Fire Homing Rays are faster and are shot out more rapidly than Aegis IV's, The Missile is shot out in a more rapid rate as well. But unlike the other standard ships, Aegis II-C does not have a charged special, but the rapid firing weapons make up for that and don't even need to charge.

Powers and abilities

The fighters in the Aegis class are well-balanced. Their Lasers are Homing Rays, and their Missile weapon is a group of simple Cruise Missiles that do an average amount of damage to enemies. The fighter class has no outstanding strengths and weaknesses, which makes this fighter class a great choice for beginners.
