*Fire Control, target Woolie Wool.  Warm up the beam.  And... FIRE!*

Exits are to the sides and rear.  Personal flamethrowers are located beneath your seat in case of emergency or naughty disposition.  If you run into any Shivans while crawling through the ductwork, it's probably just Carl.  Give him your lunch, back away slowly, and you'll be fine.

Since you neglected to post any Vasudan ships, I'll go with the Herc II.

Vasudan ships?
/me rounds up Vasudans and hands them to a bunch of hungry Shivans.

For some reason I have a deep loathing of Vasudans and a desire to fight on the Shivan side (maybe because Shivan ships are so damn cool...).

My favorite playable ship is the GTF Ares, with the Mara a close second. You can actually keep shooting in an Ares for a while without running out of juice as opposed to an Erinyes. The Mara would be better had it more hull hitpoints and secondary weapons capacity. Speaking of secondary weapons capacity, the Erinyes could use a lot more.

But what I really want to fly is an SF Dragon. I've designed tables to make the Dragon playable, but I can't get weapons to work! Help!

The Vasudan Bomber "Sekhemet".

Ill fight anything in it, fighters, cruisers, corvettes, destroyers, transports you name it. I will kill it in a Sekhemet.

Same goes for the Terran Bomber GTB Ursa. Got to be the best Terran Bomber out there along with the Boanerges.

I wont fly the Herc II much, however i have a great amount of respect for it. Although its missile load capacity reaches no where near the Sekhemet (I know its a bomber, but its as good as any fighter out there, and if flown right is better), the Herc II makes up for it in speed and primary guns. Even tyhough all ships have different primary gun power drain, the power management makes this not a worry.

Fear The Sekhemet....

If you want to dogfight in a bomber, the Artemis D.H. is your ship. Those ****ers can outmaneuver a Herc II. But what really wins in the "pain in the ass" category is the SF Manticore. They are ridiculously hard to hit, and the Horus is no fun to dogfight either.

If you're really crazy, a Helios can be fitted to a GTF Myrmidon fighter, but the enemy ship's turrets can take you out easily while you're getting a lock. That is, if the enemy ship is not a piece of crap like an Orion or Aten.

You're kidding, right?

Right?

Seriously, if you're piloting a Pegasus or (even worse) a Ptah (that name is the sound I make when I have to fly one...), once you are sighted by an enemy ship you can kiss your ass goodbye as the enemy's primaries rip through your paper-thin hull.

Well, both my favorite fighter and bomber are vasudan (Tauret and Sekhmet), but out of those it is without a doubt the Mara. This thing is so good as to be unbalanced since it excels in almost every way, with great speed/maneuverability, very heavy armor, the biggest missile banks of any fighter and as a bonus, the ability to very slowly slide. :D The only problem is its terrible primary weapon compatibility, but it can still use the powerful Kayser. I suppose that the Mara is not really a standard ship though, so out of the more "normal" Terran fighters it would probably be the Ares for me.

That award I think should go to the Dragon. Very small and hard to hit, and incredibly maneuverable. The Horus can be annoying too, but it can't compare to that Dragon.

The Dragon is just a little bit less of a pain because there's less of them and they don't appear during the TAG mission (if there were Dragons in the TAG mission, it would have taken the pain in the ass award). Manticores, on the other hand, are ****ing EVERYWHERE,  and if you don't have any secondaries left over and have Prometheus on your ship (never EVER bring along. Prometheus when you'll be left missile-less against Manticores or Dragons!), you're pretty much ****ed. Plus, Dragons at least are the coolest-looking ships in the game and you have some eye candy to relieve the frustration with.

If only I could FLY a Dragon...

No, but I'm gonna download the FS-FS2 conversion and then I'll change my missions to work with the conversion (teach the last remaining Apollos [instead of Lokis] in the GTVA what Kaysers are!)

The Herc II is only worth flying if you have the six-gun mod.
Sod the Sekhmet, you can take down anything in a Herc II!

'cept capships, of course. Ok, I'll go with... THE ATHENA!!!

I liked flying Vasudan ships better than Terran ships, for some odd reason. When SA comes out, you will Ph34r Vasudan fighters :thepimp:

Anyway, my favorite Terran ship would be the Herc II.

Now for the welcome...

Welcome to HLPBB!

Exits are to the rear and left in case of emergency with shotguns, laser cannons, and mortars under the seats, in the cabinets, and near the exits, respectively. Watch out for any Shivans crawling around, and if any approach you, just give them your lunch and you'll be allright. Watch out for ZB when you have less than 200 posts. And watch out for me when I'm angry, cause I'll take your PIES! :D
Spoon - I stand in awe by your flawless fredding. Truely, never before have I witnessed such magnificant display of beamz.
Axem -  I don't know what I'll do with my life now. Maybe I'll become a Nun, or take up Macrame. But where ever I go... I will remember you!
Axem - Sorry to post again when I said I was leaving for good, but something was nagging me. I don't want to say it in a way that shames the campaign but I think we can all agree it is actually.. incomplete. It is missing... Voice Acting.
Quanto - I for one would love to lend my beautiful singing voice into this wholesome project.
Nuclear1 - I want a duet.
AndrewofDoom - Make it a trio!

I love the Herc2 fighter. Most of the time i load it with 2 Kayser banks. 1 Tornado bank and 1 bank of Harpoons. After that the perseus interceptor and atlast the Enrys.

Myrm.  6 gun points are better than 4, and it has no real weaknesses.  Zues can also be good fun, i like the long afterburner supply, but if only it was a tad bit faster. :sigh:

Peronally, my first place goes to the Apolllo for old style charm value. Second goes to the Sekhmet because it's so damn fine, and third goes to the Athena because of a combination of both.
