Novus dervish

Novus Dervish

General Edit

The Dervish Jet is an elite Novus aircraft with blinding speed. Its antimatter shots stick to the target briefly before exploding, doing more damage if other antimatter shots are attached. It can attack ground and air. Its attack is stronger against aircraft and structures than infantry and heroes. Antimatter is devastating against Masari Dark Matter Armor. In design, the Humans' "Maverick" Jet resembles the Dervish, but can be recongized by their missiles.

When Advanced Flow is researched, vehicles will use the flow network.  However, they will only use the flow network if they will arrive at their destination faster via the network than normal movement.  The Dervish will often arive faster by simply flying to its destination, however because the flow network is stealthed, you may want to force a Dervish to use the flow network anyway.  This can be done just like any other unit, by double-ordering (double right clicking) the move twice in rapid succession.
