The Aeon T3 AA Gunship, nicknamed the Restorer, is an Aeon unit.

The Restorer is a very good gunship: significantly cheaper and quicker to build than either of the other two T3 gunships. It is equipped with extremely powerful AA capabilities, but it also bears air-to-ground guns that, although having little more than half the power of the Broadsword and Wailer, are still devastating against ground units. In light of how much cheaper the Restorer is than its counterparts, the lower air-to-ground DPS is practically a non-issue, while the fact that the Restorer is both by far the toughest (with 1200 HP more than the Broadsword) and the fastest gunship pushes it well over the line into "broken". Because of its powerful AA, the Restorer also needs far less support from T3 air-superiority fighters, allowing you to deploy even more Restorers in their place.

Aeon Restorers can be hard to counter, but there is a cost-effective way to do so. See the page Countering Aeon Restorers for more information.

Restorer Vs. T3 Ghetto GunshipEdit

The UEF Alternative to the Aeon Restorer is the T3 Ghetto Gunship. It is overall a far stronger craft, but also costs more. Here is the comparison:

A ghetto gunship may be a superior choice, when comparing stats below:

Comparison
Stat Restorer T3 Ghetto Gunship
Total Mass Cost 1200 2980
Total Energy Cost 20000 32045
Time Cost 4800 11420 (bots + carrier)
Direct Fire DPS 160 654
Anti-Air DPS 130 208
Mass/Ground DPS Ratio (lower is better) 7.5 4.55
Mass/Total DPS Ratio (air+ground) 4.14 3.46
Total Health 7200 7500
Speed 10 15


As you can see then, the Restorer and the T3 Ghetto Gunship are very similar in stats - with the Ghetto gunship being more efficient, but also more expensive. Also, as the T3 Ghetto Gunship is more susceptible to flak (as the T1 Light Assault Bots may be destroyed independently, once its shield is destroyed), the Restorer is arguably the most durable gunship of the two. The Restorer is slower, but quicker to build. Overall then, while the Restorer may be regarded as "broken" by some, there is at least one other equivalent unit out there, so do not believe that this gives Aeon an unbeatable edge in any conflict.
