|“||Fight, win, prevail!||”|
|—A Swordfish crew's motto|
The Swordfish is the primary vessel of the Foehn navy.
Swordfishes form the cornerstone of every Foehn naval formation. These agile military boats have been armed with an enhanced version of the pressurizer lance, similar to the one used by the Lancers against the enemy tanks. With more space for charging equipment and the engine, the raw firepower of lances on Swordfishes vastly exceeds that of a single Lancer, making it capable of taking on the largest of enemy warships. Additionally, while Spinblades are still not as common at the shores and on islands as they are inland, the engine of a Swordfish can benefit from its air manipulation and reach higher speeds.
The Swordfish is the Foehn's main naval unit. Its main advantage compared to their counterparts is their raw firepower and enhanced speed from Spinblades. Their pressure lances are powerful enough to crush any ships, tanks and buildings within their range.
However, they also have weaknesses that a Foehn naval commander should be wary of. While its pressure lance is strong, it has a short range so the Swordfish won't have the first strike against its rivals. Their weapon is also ineffective against infantry, a flaw shared by Lancers and Pteranodons.
- Swordfishes (Xiphias gladius) are a family of large migratory and predatory fishes known for their long, flat bill akin to that of a sword.
- Before 3.3.3, the Swordfish is able to deploy a Shrike Drone similar to that of Shrike Nest’s, but this was since then removed due to balance reasons and since Whipray takes its place.
