Yes, but my FALKEN's mobility is at 100% and so is its air-to-air. All I have to do is catch you in the laser beam for less than a second and I can destory your aircraft. I have also destroyed a few X-02's in "Operation X". I can also choose between having 19 lasers or 14 long range lasers(although I havn't unlocked the long range lasers, I will soon). Look forward to a challenge later on.
A properly upgraded FALKEN would be a lot better than anything but probably a Fenrir.
Perhaps in your hands, but I don't really care for the laser in air-to-air situations, and I can't stand the Falken's gun. I also love the XFA-27's ability to launch up to four standard missiles and two QAAMs at the same time. Furthermore, the Fenrir isn't exactly a good benchmark, as the LSWBM is relativly easy to evade, and missile-happy individuals are going to run out of ammo a long time before any Falken.
By the way, I've destroyed one of the X-02s in Operation X with a frikkin F-5E (before I got a missile up my six), so nyah.
