The Death Header is a black plane (or red in Raiden Fighters Jet) that looks somewhat like the Flying Pancake from Strikers 1945 II, but differs in various ways.
The Electric Lock-On Beam behaves similarly to the RF1 Devastator's Electro-Zapper Beam, including the Charged Laser. The Heat-Seeking Missiles spin around in place for a while before homing into an enemy. Its defense is quite good.
Raiden Fighters series: The Death Header debuts in Raiden Fighters 2: Operation Hell Dive as one of the standard ships to choose from. It later reappears in Raiden Fighters Jet, and reprises it's role as in Raiden Fighters 2: Operation Hell Dive.
