Vote for your favorite, and post why.
Mine is the Cariburn because of how I tuned it. (Slyph wing FTW.)
It is off the chart for speed and mobility, almost for Air-to-Air.
The only prolbem is its Defense, which is about 1/3 - 1/2 half of the bar.
And, I got the gun upgrade that allows the guns to "lock on" the target, makes me use less missiles.
By far my best air to air aircraft; I had enough FALKEN from AC5. (I didn't get the Fenrir yet. XD)

I'm partial to the Forneus. C-Cycle, Adv Actuator, Light Armor, Extra Ammo, and Fenrir ECMS is the ticket for me, and does whatever I need. Maxes out the Mobility bar, and Speed is very close to it. It's also very stable, although this plane dies by a single missile on Normal. Which sucks. Despite that, I still love flying this YR-99.

XR-45 Cariburn :D !!

I tuned it for highest maneuverability and speed, then whatever Armor i use cannot make defense increase anymore(lowest defense)-.-"
Hence, I used ECCM type armor and Cockpit instead of defense-.-"(1 missile can kill me, so i try not to be shot-.-)

I like my Cariburn. Since I don't need maxed out everything I Tuned it to make it as maneuverable and stable as I could, then I added the "Raven" part for the cockpit, the C-Cycle engine, some wing part for stability, and the ridiculously strong armor. it takes 3 missiles to kill on hard and still can out-turn the Alect Squadron.

I like the XFA-27. It's very versatile and performs well in any given situation.

Fenrir. It's special weapon (forgot the abbreviation) helped me finish Mission 2 in one strike!.
XFA-27 for it's history in Scarface Mercenary Squadron.
X-02 for it's personal history in Ace Combat 04.
Anything else?

xfa-27 was a super plane in ac2 but it seems to have been downgraded same it was able to keep up with the falken and was the only plane that could fire 4 missles at once

I like the X-02. But I fail to see it as a 'Cheat Plane.'

Well, it was a cheat plane is AC4.
And, most people won't let you use it for contest in AC4 - 0.
So, still counts as one for me.

the XFA-27 is am awsome plane. four missiles at once and highly costomizable. what's not to love? (mine usually has manouverability, speed and defence close to maxed out. stability takes a big hit, but...)

as for my all-time favrioute plane, Fenrir. it is one of the best aircraft i've ever seen, riveling only the FALKEN. maybe the Morgan 02 as well.

The only thing special about the X-02 is its agility, manuverability, versatility, etc. It doesn't have any uber weapons (thank God).

I don't know, the QAAM was kinda cheap in AC04. But otherwise, I'm right there with ya.

I like the Forneus now. I tuned mine so it's like a Mig-31. Except, you know, it's maneuverable, unlike that brick with rockets on it.

Well, I voted for the Fenrir, but this was PURELY because of it's LSWM. It's awesome! However, the FALKEN beats it in every other way..... Have you ever tried using the TLS to destroy the radars without cutting the power on the 'In Pursuit' missions? It's an easy way to complete it quickly.

My favourite is the Forneus as well. However, I modified mine so that it's a slight step down from the S/MTD, my favourite plane above all else. :D

the Forneus is good, i must admit it, but the Caraburn is also pretty dammed effective. in fact, without having a full supply of parts for the final mission, the first time i tried End of Deception II (and the first time i ever beat the game) i had a Caraburn with only a handful of parts installed to it and i still managed to beat the mission.

My favorite fictional plane would be XFA-27 (good versatility and scarface colors for the win :lol: ) and the cheat plane I favor the most would be X-02.

Though I don't think X-02 is a cheat plane in this AC O_o
