The ARM T2 ground attack plane with its high intensity laser and bombs is a high end ground attack plane. With its high range it wide firearc it can skirmish very well for a ground attack plane. When you are using these you should try to preserve them and not sacrifice them. They are good against heavy armor as well. It got relatively low fuel so it is not that good at long range missions.
It got a rear mounted machine gun to provide some anti-air against fighters.
