The Beast class of fighters is a main line of fighters in the Raiden Fighters series.
Beast Arrow is the name of a ship that appears only in Raiden Fighters, but it was replaced by Beast Wing in the later games. This plane is slow, a large target, and looks like a Lockheed P-38 Lightning on steroids. The Beast Arrow has a powerful Laser (which is the Pulse Beam) and Homing Missiles. Its Laser Charge Attack is one of the best; in full power, it can destroy medium sized planes with one blast, which can give tons of scores, and blows out a huge path of small enemies.
Beast Wing is a powerful fighter that makes it's first debut in Raiden Fighters 2: Operation Hell Dive as an upgraded version of the Beast Arrow, but with several minor changes made. However, it is based on the Beast Arrow from the previous game. It is still slow, a large target, and looks like a Lockheed P-38 Lightning on steroids. The Beast Wing has a wicked flamethrower which is extremely similar to that of the Miclus' bomb. The Stinger Missiles home in on an enemy, but they do not explode immediately upon contact with an enemy. The Stinger Missiles latch onto the enemy, exploding moments after contact. The Charged Missile special unleashes a swarm of these lethal missiles.
