By all means. I had hoped other people would latch onto my obsessive attempts to create some semblance of timeline :D

Ah, so you're porting it to 3.03? Are you also doing any modifications on it as well?

NB: is there any reason why the Vasudans couldn't have adopted a 'swarm' type tactic ala the Red Army (or perhaps Japanese Imperial Armies 'Banzai' style culture) in WW2 for their lighter classes, anyways?  The Vasudans are described as, IIRC, a race of artists and engineers rather than warriors, but I don't think it makes it impossible for them to take the massed-forces approach; particularly as it appears Terran weapons were superior, so they'd need to accept losses anyways (especially given the ****ness of the Anubis, for example).

(at the same time, it could explain having something like the Typhon being 'king'; fighters and cruisers could be disposable, but the fighter and bomber base not)

In any case, it might be that the Aten is **** because **** is cheaper to make.

@ Aldo, i think the HOL forces took the more "aggressive/disposable assets" approach as shown by the kamikaze fighters and cruisers in FS1...... :)

But i make ya right, The frail design and mass numbers appear to indicate a "pfft" approach to their war-style in general.

There's canon evidence that the Vasudans would sometimes use swarm tactics (and it happened in a mission against the HOL during FS1).


And I never knew that the chinese had curved swords. The word "dao" usually means knife.

You also forgot about the destruction of the GTD Goliath by kamikaze Anubis fighters.

No we didnt   :nervous:.........................................ok you got me at least.


Classic example of T vs V in tactics = look at the very first non training FS mission, Guard the Orff against X amount of Vas fighter wings, with 2!!! Apollos......... (man that fighter is sweet)

Those Anubis fighters were what remained of a damaged Vasudan convoy looking for revenge (or something).

No it doesn't, you don't have a position, all you have is a squalid hole in the ground where your arguement used to be.

Luckily for me my squalid hole is full of beer and porn.
Still the ZODS forgoing reason and withdrawing to a VAS bas and getting reinforced before smacking the orff show show they can swarm when logic dictates not swarming.........

They were low on supplies and had no base to run to. Go read through the FS1 Command Briefings.
