Stormriders were standard Scrin multi-purpose aircraft during the Third Tiberium War.

Background[edit | edit source]

Stormriders were first encountered as they emerged from the ion storms that constantly linger over Red Zones across the world. Fast-attack aircraft armed with twin plasma autocannons, they are effective against both ground and air forces, and seem to benefit greatly from the unstable energy released by ion storms[1].

The Stormriders bear a striking resemblance to the now retired Nod Banshee, which was known to have been based on alien technology[2]. It is possible that the Banshee was directly based on the Stormrider.

Abilities[edit | edit source]

Stormrider The Stormrider is buffed upon entering an Ion Storm: adding 25% extra damage, 25% damage reduction and regenerating 5% of total hp per second whilst the effect is active. The effect is lost shortly after the Stormrider leaves the storm.
