It has been decades now since Q1 Air Weapons have been introduced and higher Qs announced.
What happened yet is nothing.
Q1 Air Weapons are not viable to produce or use, not for visa players, not for the strongest air fighters.
A Q1 Air weapon costs around 50cc now and gives you 20% more damage for one hit.
In other words: 50 Q1 Air Weapons equal 1 Energy Bar.
2500cc does this Energy Bar worth of air damage cost (without the 10 XP + 10 PP the EBs provide).
During Black Friday you could buy a Pack of, iirc, 750ish 2x EBs for 1.300.000cc - or 867cc per Energy Bar.
With Air Weapons of a higher Quality, scaling like ground weapons (Q5: 5x more hits AND 5x more damage for 5x the cost), the cost of an Energy Bar worth of air damage could be brought down to 500cc.
With Q6 Air Weapons it would be 417cc.
Still not viable for most players, but a nice addition for visa players and for dedicated air fighters.
Also it creates more diversity on the markets and a fresh incentive to spend gold on full priced company upgrades again.
