Good luck getting the only 4 remaining Aeoluses, and enough parts to keep those expensive puppies going. All the rest were wiped out in the course of the FS2 Main Campaign, or shortly before (NTF), and there aren't many parts for em lying about.

(MB p1mps GTC Peleus -- easier to maintain, with little to no loss of antifighter effectiveness, and minimal loss of speed. Only major drawback is a larger target and half the anticap power.)

The GVC Mycerinus, because it can never die, never (checks mission plans).....oh wait, I retract my last statement.
Terran Mara and supplies (I'd want to see whats behind that third Knossos-probably a pair of Freders arguing"but its not canon", "so what, it looks sooooo cool", "Oh what do you know", "I made the coolest mission in Freespace 2", "oh be quite, hey whats that?")

LOL

Okay fine, I'll get more realistic: I personally would go land on some planet somewhere in the middle of nowhere that supports life and rebuild society ... without space travel.

In other words, go back to 21st century life.

Live like we do today...in a future full of Dem Shivans.

And if i DIDNT have that option?

Why, a Satis, of course.

awesome, somoeone counted!

Though you never know if the NTF was producing aeouleses and the GTVA only purchased a dozen (or was it two dozen?)
actualy, mabye not.

Ehh...we counted Aeoluses in another thread, and came to the conclusion that we only saw thirteen in the game that can be proven to be Aeoluses, and only five of those were definitely destroyed.

The "cruiser" briefing icon means nothing, sorry folks. And all the GTVA ships save the Vigilant can be saved by a good player, so they don't necessarily die.

Harr! Chew on this!

GTC Vigilant: Destroyed
GTC Warwick: Unknown after SM2-04
GTC Agrippa: Unknown after SM3-05
GTC Stalwart: Presumably destroyed in the supernova
GTC Templar: Depends on how well you do
GTC Malta: Depends on how well you do
GTC Ertanax: Depends on how well you do
GTC Sparta: Destroyed by supernova
NTC Alexandria: Let's assume for argument's sake that it was an Aeolus -- a Fenris would have been shredded and a Leviathan wouldn't have been fast enough to make it through the portal. So there.
NTC Liberty: Destroyed
NTC Epigoni: Destroyed
NTC Loyola: Destroyed
NTC Mylae: Destroyed
NTC Hellespont: Destroyed
NTC Saharan: Destroyed
NTC Retribution: Presumably destroyed in Deneb
NTC Righteous: Destroyed
NTC Vindication: Presumably destroyed in Deneb
NTC Vengeance: Destroyed

I would have put the NTC Rapier up there but I'm not sure if it was identified as an Aeolus in canon, or whether I'm just remembering the Pandora's Box campaign.

Maybe the NTF did make its own Aeoluses. Doesn't mean the GTVA thought it was cost-effective to restart production. I still say the Aeolus is rare.
