Stolen from BasetradeTV's TvT tournament: skip to 2:00:00

14 depot
15 gas
16 rax - 2x reaper
17 gas
20 orbital
20 factory - hellion then widowmine
20 depot
25 starport
26 depot
28 techlab on starport
34 banshee & cloak start @ 3:09
34 reactor on rax
35 cc

banshee arrives at enemy base and cloak finishes @ 4:26
third cc, double marines, tank, raven
standard marine tank-vac viking play as taking third

Keep in mind this was taken from a VOD and not a replay. I tried the build myself and my first banshee finished at 3:50 with arrival cross map and cloak finishing at 4:28

This is not the fastest possible banshee build, you're getting two reapers, hellions and mines to harass with while the banshees finish, I think you need to do *some* damage with the reapers and maintain solid map control with the hellion.

This makes for a very late natural expansion but you're taking a third almost immediately after. Hard to say what the breakeven damage is but it is clearly substantial.

For the flip side, particularly on Ulrena, here is an anti-banshee build. Has a raven and a cyclone ready at 3:55

In the replay the opponent's banshee gets slightly lost and hits w/ cloak at 4:37 but in any case this anti-banshee build should be safe even vs a dedicated gas first banshee build.
