Hard to use if your opponent has a quad anti aircraft gun of course.
Bs3 you mean. Fighta Ace makes it bs3 against skimmers and fliers while strafing run makes the jet bs3 against ground targets that aren't skimmers. And it's st6. Just thought I'd clear it up WAAAAAGH

Dear Lord the IG has tons of Dakka

Mine gets blown off the board more often than not, and the one time I actually got to shoot it (on a WHAAAUGGHH no less) it was into the side armor of a Stormraven and it did nothing. So Ive been running more of a ground war lately. But bringing another would give another target to divide fire, and I feel like the Blitz would be the way to go, despite rolling on a chart to hit, the Pen is pretty decent.

I run a pair of dakka jets in a 1500 point list and they are great fun. They do tend to get brutalised by anything anti air but thats the ork way. They are not fantastic anti air but ground support they are immense. 9 shots if upgraded with an additional supper shoota or 18 in the waagh turn means lots of twin linked strength 6 goodness.

Thanks Jdojo18. My mistake, I don't play orks but play against them quite a lot, so was trying to recall from memory. Still, bs 3 twin linked is not bad for an Ork with that many str 6 shots. For me it would be useful against light vehicles and infantry. As I said, that is what my mate uses it for to good effect. It does always get destroyed but it is cheap points wise and more than one dakka jet on a waaagh turn would be very nasty against infantry and light vehicles.

I usually run two dakka jets and have tried the burna bomber and blitza bomber, i have a preferance for the dakka jets. But also a question if your runing the forge world dreadmob list as what I do sometime wasn't aware they could take the flyers... Oh well up to you and whoever you play in the end



Da Golden Waaagh!

Who needs Flyers when you can bring 11 Shokk Attack Guns and 3 Lifta-Droppas?

So the lifta droppa can target flying vehicles? It doesn't say it can't so I assume it can.

Wow, yeah, I guess it can - anything that auto-hits still auto-hits on Flyers.

That's really amusing.

I meant it in the spirit of 'Well, one of us is going to get tabled before Reserves come in, let me roll my Shokk Attack Guns', but Lifta Wagons make that a lot more awesome.

EDIT: Awww, now it has to Hit, which makes it bad

Well it doesn't make it bad, but it does do D3 glancing hits, or if you roll a 6 it goes BOOM!
So just a 5 followed by a 6 and its a dead flyer.
