The Punisher is an aircraft for the Substrate faction.
Precision bomber. Strong vs cruisers and buildings.
This bomber has deadly single target damage with moderate armor-piercing weaponry. The Punisher's Plasma Bombard is a heavy energy air-to-ground weapon that leaves nothing but devastation in its wake. The Punisher has lots of burst damage but has considerable delay before it can re-strafe its target, making it good for hit and run tactics.
- 67 DPS per unit
- 1200 meters range
- 40% armor-piercing
- While its flying pattern resembles that of a bomber, the Punisher weapon acts like a heavy-hitting gunship, making it ideal for hit and run on most targets but not for dealing with frigate or even cruiser swarms.
- Punishers are easier to amass than Air Harbinger or Air Rampager should it needs to be an emergency response to a Dreadnought or Juggernaut. Having very high armor-piercing as well as high speed makes it perform better than the Air Rampager vs big targets but overall weaker vs everything else.
