I'd love to say Fenrir but...

ADF-01 Falken
Can be "tuned" to get maximum performance
Can be equipped with the TLS or XLAA for air-to-air combat

Fenrir
Can be equipped with LSWM or XMAA for air-to-air combat
Has the most powerful cannon in ACX
Is the fastest aircraft in ACX
Has small standard missile load

The LSWM is without doubt the most powerfull player weapon in ACX but for air-to-air combat is pretty useless against fast, highly-manoeuvrable fighters.
The XLAA outperforms the XMAA for range, not sure about manoeuvrability.
The TLS is exceptional in air-to-air combat, no delay in firing and good range.

Would also depend HEAVILY on the pilot.
As it stands, I'd have to say the Falken might just have the edge but it would be VERY close.
...if Fenrir had the HPM and DOS though, it'd be a totally different story!

falken, cuz of my tweaking to it, it now has all stats max <_<


How did you do this?
What parts did you use?
I have tried all combinations of the parts but can't get all the stats to max.

Actually, I've been doing some tests, and there is no "max", the stats can go beyond the bar. Try running a MiG-31 vs Fenrir vs X-02 with every possible speed increasing part, even if it goes beyond the bar. Or putting Cariburn's/X-02 manouverability to the "max" in one, and go beyond it on the other. The differences are noticeable.

But saying "Max" implies that the bars are full at least. I cannot get this to happen with any combination of parts with the Falken.
I know that even though both the Falken and Fenrir can have "Max" for speed, for example, Fenrir is still the faster aircraft.

Sorry Fenrir fans, Falken is the best.

I vote for the Falken, since it has a laser. The LSWM is cool too, but the Fenrir only has 2 of them.

It doesn't have an OSL, but rather an 'LSWM' (Long Range Shockwave Missile?) which is pretty much a tactical nuke. The problem is that you only get 2, and there is a long recharge time.

The Falken has faster reload time for it's TLS and contains more missile pay-load. Although the true potential of the Fenrir was yet to be unveiled in Archelon fortress, however Gryphus 1 intervened destroying the prototype in the process. It's full potential included having Optical Camouflage (cloaking device), HPM (unrelenting ball of radiation that follows a plane until it explodes from the inside because of fuel combustion.) and the LSWM (I smaller version of an SWBM, it's size however forced the blast radius to be very limited only lasting thousands of feet, It was used by the aurelian version). Most of it's capabilities are still unknown although the Optical Camouflage and the HPM are operated through external Structures. I hope this helps ^_^ !

Falken for mostly air to air missions, Fenrir for missions that involve destroying bases.

Using LSWMs means you have to have good aim and get the enemies together with only one second chance to get it right... but if you DO get it right the the mission gets a lot shorter and the missiles you have left can be put to better use. Plus the Fenrir is a very good plane even without customisable stats.

TLS, a bigger ammo bay and interchangeable parts for the Falken, though... I can't decide!

Falken positives:


Falken gets more regular missiles then the Fenrir in any difficulty (not sure about multiplayer) Falken gets 92 on Easy and Fenrir gets 75 on Easy, Falken gets 84 on Normal, Hard and Ace and Fenrir gets 50 on Normal, Hard and Ace

Falken's TLS is harder to avoid (it's a non-delay weapon); and to avoid the Fenrir's LSWM, you just go in circles (vertically or horizontally)

Falken can be tuned

Falken can be tuned to 'Max' Speed, Mobility and Defence with low Stability, as Stability is relatively useless (ask me why if you need to)

Falken has more TLS's (19 TLS's) than the Fenrir has LSWM's (2 LSWM's)


Fenrir positives:


Fenrir has a better (faster, therefore, perceivably, more powerful) Machine Gun(s)

Fenrir is harder to unlock, and is harder to unlock all Paints for

Fenrir is faster



Based on the greater amount of positives, I believe that the Falken is better, although I use the Fenrir in Air-to-Surface missions (Armada etc.)

Now for a useless fact: the Fenrir is classified as a Multirole, whereas the description reads: 'An advanced fighter developed using tactical battle data gathered on the Gleipnir'

topic, not really anything else to say. I'm biased towards the FALKEN though


Falken every time-no ifs-no buts.
Although I normally play using the X-02-pisses the fenrir every single time. :rolleyes:

Fenrir can of course launch an LSWM at the ground, effectively killing any planes in hot pursuit, kind of nooby though (not something I would do in Multiplayer)

Let's see, firstly we should look at the choices, the plane that looks like a pancake or the plane that looks like thigh's with wings slapped on... No contest, the pancake wins. Mmmm... Pancakes...

The fenrir looks like it could at least fly. What's wrong with the falken is that it's upside-down and inside-out, that's what is wrong with it.

And fenrir has better color schemes. Woop for number 4.
