Curtain Fire: Rate of fire is increased by 50 % when armor is below 30 %.

OK plane overall. Strong boss killing ability.
Fun Fact: Katyusha was a Soviet rocket launcher during World War 2, also called “Stalin’s Organ” due to the sound produced, which set fear in the German forces on the Eastern Front.

The shots are very slow, causing me to use overdrive a ton of times during Katyusha combat tests.
Armor recovery +20% should mean that any armor recovery you have is increased by 20%.
This can be easily tested, I suppose, by using Katyusha, Kraken, and a Healing Bot (menace?). Do the Doom trick to get access to infinite time, then get killed. Kraken will restore you to 20% armor, and you can measure the change in pace as you go from 20% to 100%. It should take you marginally less time to max out (as each 100 points of healing should instead give you 120 points).
Katyusha has a very powerful counter attack. The 6 homing missiles can be used to easliy destroy bosses. Katyusha is best combined with legatus and its 100% damage buff after taking 300 damage.
