Air Fleet is a stage in the game Shadow the Hedgehog. It is one of the five fifth stages and can be reached by completing the Hero mission of Central City, the Normal mission of The Doom, or the Dark mission of Sky Troops.

Story

Central City lies in ruins. The Eggman Fleet has been decimated, Black Doom has shown Shadow his past destroying one of GUN's most powerful machines. The future looks bleak for Sonic's world. High in the skies of Sonic's world, G.U.N.'s flying battleships are evacuating from Central City. At Central City, in the White House, The Commander urges the President to evacuate to a more fortified position to protect themselves from the advancing Black Arms, which the President reluctantly agrees to. Shadow and Black Doom stand outside the building. Black Doom orders Shadow to follow the President (which the player can choose to do or not). Shadow then skates off towards the ship where the escape pod is going.

Immediately upon starting the stage, Shadow runs into Tails, who asks for Shadow's help in protecting the President's shuttle from the Black Arms' boarding parties by defeating all the aliens. If Shadow chooses to side with Black Doom instead, he must destroy the shuttle, which is being conveyed on a monorail track through the ship. Shadow can switch the rails in places where the path forks to send the pod into dangerous Arms-controlled regions of the ship, but it is generally up to the hedgehog himself to deal massive damage to the vehicle; as such, the Shadow Rifle is a good choice of weapon for this mission.

Behind the Secret Door

Behind the door is a Black Arms Air Saucer. When mounted, it enables Shadow to grind along the electrified rails. The rails lead to a secret room filled with weapons (including a 'Shadow Crate'), extra lives and a health unit for the vehicle. The saucer can be used all the way through until the end of the level, but this will require some careful riding. A helpful tip: if you want to complete the level with the saucer or reach other electrified rails further along the level, double jump continuously when there is a steep slope to overcome them.

Trivia

  • Even after the escape pod is destroyed, in the GUN Fortress stage, it appears without a single dent or scratch from the mission.
  • When Doom's Eye says "This shall be the last time that the humans ever see the sun" during this stage, he might be foreshadowing how the Black Comet will be teleported down to Earth and launch its attack during the Last Story.
