A pretty good single-seat fighter, the Gyr is one of the more exciting looking ships. If you fit a military drive, there's reasonable room for some decent weaponry. The biggest problem with the Gyr is that (due to a bug??) you can't see anything behind you! This problem can be partly solved by turning labels on.

I had a Gyr for a short time, and quite liked it. It's fast, handles well and you can put decent weapons in. However, you'll get sick of not having a back view, and will trade your Gyr in for something else.

Rating: ***

Test the ship!
