Ice Dragon is the best attack plane available in AMS in my opinion, however you must spend a lot of money and put a lot of work in to take it to its' full potential. The Lord of Winter gear set pairs with Ice Dragon and has specific matching abilities that enhance some of Ice Dragon's Attributes, making it much more powerful.
Ice Dragon is the best attack plane, and if you are willing to put in the money and work it will pay off. You will need to work the Secret Treasure Event to get all of the Lord of Winter gears, and you will want to find the deals on getting as many Ice Dragon Spare Parts as you can.
While all of the Deployment Gear Sets work on Ice Dragon, the Lord of Winter gear set is what you should strive for:
- Lord of Winter
- Superalloy Slug
- Blade of Champion
- Wild Roar
- Nature Force
- Christmas Gold Bell
- Christmas Silver Bell (Gold)
Where to get Ice Dragon Spare Parts:
Ice Dragon is occasionally available from Recharge for $50 US for 5 whole planes, which is a very good deal if you can be patient. You can buy an Ice Dragon from the Plane Store in the Air Force Command Center for $50 US.
You need 1 of each Spare Part to make a whole plane:
|Ice Dragon - Claws|
|Ice Dragon - Head|
|Ice Dragon - Torso|
|Ice Dragon - Wings|

Plane Special Skills:
Plane Special Skills are buffs that can be activated manually and last for a limited time. They have a "cool-off" period (which is usually 24 hours, but might be less) such that they can only be used once until the cooldown period expires. Many of these are quite powerful, one-time buffs that can be activated for the next attack. These skills are only available when you have maxed out the specific Plane's Attribute. To activate the Special Skill, go to the Battlefield Screen and click the icon in the lower-left corner with an officer hat and a plane:
Ice Dragon has the Frost Breath Special Skill which, when activated, increases your units' damage done for the next attack.
Ice Dragon's Frost Breath skill can be enhanced by improving your Chairman of the Joint Staff Command Department.
NOTE: You do not have to use the Plane that has the Special Skill in your march in order to reap the benefits of that skill, you only need to activate it. Put another way, you can activate the Special Skill for one plane and use a different plane and still get the benefit of that Special Skill. I have verified this.
EXP needed to upgrade level:
Both the Ice Dragon and Arctic Sleigh require more EXP to upgrade their levels than all the other planes:
New Energy Cost
Total EXP to max:
General Plane Promotion Material can be used to Promote Planes (increase their star level). Ice Dragon requires the following General Plane Promotion Material:
Air Force Cultivation Card Cost:
Planes can be promoted by purchasing Air Force Cultivation Cards from the Premium Gift Card Event. The cost for 1 star for Ice Dragon is $100 US, and believe it or not that's a good deal.
Plane Specific Pilots?
