Fast and Agile, Lightning Strike Fighters are used to counter air raids and escort bomber squadrons. Armed with twin multi-lasers, the Lightning Strike Fighter is an excellent dogfighter, capable of holding its own against any other aircraft. The Lightning Fighter meanwhile, uses its powerful twin lascannons against lumbering bombers to devastating effect.
This kit allows you to build both Lightning Strike Fighters, armed with twin multi-lasers, and Lightning Fighters, carrying twin lascannons. Both of them operate best in squadrons, and this box gives you six! The kit also includes a selection of hellstrike missiles and skystrike missiles with which to upgrade your miniatures.
– 6 plastic Imperial Navy Lightning Strike Fighter miniatures (2 of which can be built as Lightning Fighters)
– 6 Aeronautica Imperialis bases (each of which designates the model’s front, rear and side arcs, speed and altitude dials, as well as a clear stand to connect the aircraft to the base)
– 1 Lightning Squadron transfer sheet
The rules for using these miniatures in games of Aeronautica Imperialis can be found in both Aeronautica Imperialis: Skies of Fire and the Taros Air War Campaign Book.
