ok, we've all played FS2, we've all fredded... we all know the ships, we can tell what ship is more manuverable, fastest, strong, ect. We've all flown all the ships, we understand them. We don't use numbers for hull and shield, we use our experience

We are the ship gurus

From my experience, the Artemis D.H. is more maneuverable.

Then why does it exist, except for the fact that it looks cool?

Here's what it says

"The GTB Artemis D.H. is an experimental variant of the standard Artemis class. The most notable change is that the Artemis's factory-issued Han-Ronald engines have been replaced by the same Nankam NA-27f powerplant now found in the GTF Ares fightercraft. The D.H. variant is faster and more maneuverable than the standard Artemis bomber, at no cost to armor or armament.[/i] During the OpEval period, Artemis D.H. bombers are being deployed in only select squadrons in different theatres of the war. If the evaluation trials go well, wider deployment of the Artemis D.H. class is expected."

Didn't you say that the D.H. was not more maneuverable than it's normal counterpart? It is no faster than the standard Artemis (65 m/s, the same as the standard Artemis). So why is it there except for its tougher-looking appearance?

It is more manuverable (I'm quite sure. Check the tables) and I beleive it may have a larger amount of fuel. Again, check the tables.

Other than that, they are just meant to be cooler, 'bonus' ships.

I just checked the default tables; its turn times, speed, shields and hitpoints are exactly the same as the normal one, and I suspect the rest of the stats are identical as well.

The Apollo is stylish in appearance, but its specifications pale in comparison to many of the FS2 ships.


I can't handle the specifcations! :D I've got too add another playable ship to my favourites: the PVN/GVF Horus

Looks-wise, the Athena, then the Artemis DH, then the Apollo.
Flying-wise, the Serapis, then the Horus, then the Perseus.
Shooter-wise, the Ares, then the Tauret, then the Herc 2.

Best bomber = Artemis DH and Sekhmet.



Overall, though, it has to be the Mara. Fast, hard, and huge missile bays. If only you could take Prometheus and Maxims... I suppose a tbl fiddle is in order...
Any fool can pull a trigger...

"...The quintessential quality of our age is that of dreams coming true. Just think of it. For centuries we have dreamt of flying; recently we made that come true: we have always hankered for speed; now we have speeds greater than we can stand: we wanted to speak to far parts of the Earth; we can: we wanted to explore the sea bottom; we have: and so  on, and so on: and, too, we wanted the power to smash our enemies utterly; we have it. If we had truly wanted peace, we should have had that as well. But true peace has never been one of the genuine dreams - we have got little further than preaching against war in order to appease our consciences. The truly wishful dreams, the many-minded dreams are now irresistible - they become facts." - 'The Outward Urge' by John Wyndham

"The very essence of tolerance rests on the fact that we have to be intolerant of intolerance. Stretching right back to Kant, through the Frankfurt School and up to today, liberalism means that we can do anything we like as long as we don't hurt others. This means that if we are tolerant of others' intolerance - especially when that intolerance is a call for genocide - then all we are doing is allowing that intolerance to flourish, and allowing the violence that will spring from that intolerance to continue unabated." - Bren Carlill
