Re: How they might destroy the Gargant
Why board to capture it? Board with the goal of inflicting damage, and if by chance you kill all the crew without destroying the ship, then capture it. Bring all the heavy weapons you want and use them prolifigately. Demolish anything that looks remotely important. Blow holes through the interior bulkheads to make your own doors. Heck, blast out enough of the bulkheads to give yourself decent fields of fire. If you can clear about a hundred meters, that'll swing the odds back in your favor. Even fifty meters would pose a big problem to the Shivans, who are close-combat specialists.

Re: How they might destroy the Gargant
I agree with ngtm1r, just blast the hell out of the hull, and use long range weapons to make spaces for the infantry to move in, it works, but it also leaves us with the problem of TOO open spaces. . .. .

However, I would love more suggestions, considering it's split roughly 50-50, I would prefer it if we could keep brainstorming (who knows, the Inferno creators might take a look at this thread. . . ) :mad: :mad: :mad:

Re: How they might destroy the Gargant
Well you could double the estimate for crew :)

 
In Wing Commander 4, there was the flashpak.

It's small, even stealth fighters carry it.

It's easy to operate.

1. Lock on target.

2. Launch at target.

3. Watch it hit target.

4. Laugh like a demented hyena as the target's internal atmosphere incinerates.

Re: How they might destroy the Gargant
The Shivans don't seem to mind no atmosphere situations, and any large ships would probably be able to seal breaches using bulkheads or shielding.

Spoiler:
Actually, there are two Gargants.  By a miraculous stroke of luck for the GTVA, they collide and explode after one exits subspace right behind the other one.

Why not just send the Volition Bravos with BFFFFUBERReds in place of the flak?  That should teach em, arrr'.

In reply to two posts ago:

Is that true? Or did you just make it up to confuse everybody? Hey, Woomeister can you confirm?

Don't belive him. That was posted before on "Gargant Killing Treat-How?", and it's fake spoiler. :p
If in your opinion there's no difference beetwen "Master Game" and "Game Master", I can only feel for you.

Re: How they might destroy the Gargant
No the Gargant was to show up in either chapter 3 or 4 of the old campaign, since there are no plans for those in the current one, we currently don't have plans to use it. Hence why I removed it from the tables for now.

It doesn't mean that we won't use it however.

I believe the Gargant was to come in during the Ancient attack, so no ancients=that story scrapped.

 
Re: How they might destroy the Gargant
Old campaign? I must be missing something here. :confused:

If ther's an "old" there must be a "new"....

Re: How they might destroy the Gargant
Here's a use for your Gargant!...  Find some way to convert the model to a D3 level map, find another way to make a Shivan "robot", and down we go!
Prepare for Descent...
Sorry... I do realize that this is not a D3 forum, but then again, it is an FS forum, and since the Gargant isn't going to be used in the Inferno campaign... well I guess a D3 mission is all it's good for, unless someone comes up with a plan for using it.  Hmm... it was going to be involved w/ the Ancients?  Someone should make Solar Wars Chapter 2.  (After they fix up Chapter 1, that is.)

Re: How they might destroy the Gargant
Some of the R1 stuff we still have is really leftovers from the old campaign. There's no plans on using the Notus right now either, but I've left that one in the tables for now. I've removed the Gargant as it won't be used in the first two chapters, and I don't want you lot getting your hands on it till we use it :D

Don't worry though if we actually didn't use it at all I'll make sure it's released.
