Assessment
Compare the spread with e.g. Blitzer: Where Patriot has a wider spread of the bullet stream, Blitzer’s is more narrow. This is very important – Blitzer in this case would be the preferred weapon against fewer and tougher enemies, and you will want Patriot against massive waves of relatively fragile foes.

Powerful armor, which is further enhanced by the repair ability for every kill. Many have Patriot as (at least one of) their favorite plane, and it is certainly a top choice for long runs in Arcade. Possibly Patriot is mentioned as favorite plane by most people, after Laserbite.

A little note: Developers are said to be Russian, but the Patriot has a distinct American design.

In action on Level 134 Heroic with Musketeer and Legatus:
