- "Severe sacrifices have been made to speed and maneuverability to facilitate an unprecedented number of armaments. The Shark Mouth is one of the most recognized of all nose art. Lay waste to your enemies with more than enough ammo to spare!"
- ― XBL Marketplace description.
The THUNDER SHARK is a modified version of the traditional Republic of Emmeria Air Force Thunderbolt II model, as evidenced by the Emmerian emblems emblazoned on its body. The main difference, and its namesake, is the "sharksmouth" nose art in the frontal area of the aircraft, which is popular amongst A-10A pilots in the real world.
In performance, there are noticeable differences between it and the standard version. The THUNDER SHARK has greater air combat power and has a noticeably larger weapons arsenal, which has been increased two-fold. These upgrades however, come at the cost of a near-minimal mobility and lesser flight stability.
