The Fighter is the second Fighter Aircraft and an upgrade to the Biplane. It becomes available in the Modern Age. This aircraft is more effective and has a greater range than its predecessor making it a viable attack unit if its base airfield is close to the battle. It is also useful for destroying enemy bombers before they can reach your town but if there is a strong AA defence this may not be necessary. Although they have more fuel than their bi-plane predecessors, they still run out very quickly and therefore the airfield must be somewhat close to the desired target.
