Hell Diver is a fighter plane that first appears in Raiden Fighters 2: Operation Hell Dive and it's sequel, Raiden Fighters Jet. It is also the protagonist of the RF2. It is known for being an all around jet and easy-to-handle for all types of players, and is the first secret fighter you will see in the Fighter Select screen in the second installment. At the end of every level, it moves it's wings back before speeding off.
Powers and abilities
The Boomerang Laser is an excellent weapon against many types of foes. The Charged Laser special is very powerful, releasing a finishing blast. The missile weapon consists of run-of-the-mill pseudo-homing missiles in Raiden Fighters 2: Operation Hell Dive and splash bombs in Raiden Fighters Jet, both which charged attacks consist of a barrage of missile sent at the enemy. On some RF2 machines the Hell Diver is available for you to select. On others, you have to rely on pure luck to select it from the Random Ship Selector with question mark at the bottom right corner of the screen. This is the only secret fighter that behaves like the seven standard planes (can only use one type of weapon, carries two bombs on each new life, uses charged attacks, slaves assume formations during charged attacks). This is a popular plane among players of all skill levels.
