The Block Shooter is a Konami Legacy plane that only appears in Airforce Delta Strike. It was originally featured as the player's craft in Konami's 1989 hybrid puzzle/shoot 'em up arcade game Quarth, also known as Block Hole.
The Block Shooter is a very bizarre... Plane? The craft itself looks like a gigantic bullet with metallic detailing on it. It has a bright red light on the top of it, and has a massive booster inside of the back of it. It is seemingly being moved by two small cherub-like creatures. When firing weapons, the front of the craft opens up.
The Block Shooter's stats are all above average except for mobility which is very poor. It has rockets as its main weapon and lacks a machine gun. It only really has any sort of use because of its special weapon, the All Delete Block. When you use it, the mission you're playing is instantly completed. However, it also destroys the Block Shooter and you have to spend a large amount of money to repair it and re-purchase its special weapon if you wish to use it again. This is, overall, a very strange aircraft, in terms of both appearance and performance.
