The jet armor at the loadout screen.

The jet armor is an armor type found in Earth Defense Force Insect Armageddon. While using the jet armor, the player can fly and use energy weapons. Both use up energy, so players must manage their energy use to prevent being unable to reload; not only this, but crashing to earth when your energy has depleted can cause a jet armor user to become stunned for a few precious seconds, which can be the matter between life and death. The jet has very little health, so his strength is with ranged combat; he has access to the best sniper rifles in the game. The armor is based on the Pale Wing class found in EDF 2 and is succeeded by the Wing Diver class found in Earth Defense Force 2025 and Earth Defense Force 4.1: The Shadow of New Despair.

DescriptionEdit

Although it offers the lightest protection of the three specialty armor types, Jet Armor is the fastest and most manueverable. The integrated Jet system allows the user of this armor to fly. The Jet Armor is also unique in that it utilizes energy weapons, which pull power from the Jet Armor's energy reserves. Flight is the Jet Armor's special ability, and most of its upgrades have to do with either enhancing flight characteristics or increasing energy output/reducing reload power consumption.

Should the Jet Armor's energy reserves be completely depleted they require a short period to fully recover, and during this recovery time the Jet Armor cannot fly or reload any weapons. Fortunately, the operator may still sprint, ground dodge, and any loaded weapons may still be fired. Careful flight management and extensive practice with the Active Reload System are essential to maintaining power reserves at optimal levels. One also must be careful, as running out of energy while in mid-flight can lead to a crash landing, that leaves the user temporarily stunned and more prone to attack.
