If the Ulysses Space Superiority fighter was a joint design by Vasudan and Terran engineers, why didn't Vasudans fly it?

They had a version with similar flight characteristics called the Thoth.

And a much better version it is, if you ask me...

Then again, I consider the Seth the best fighter of them all, so I should probably shut up :D
A Seth is a terrible thing to waste. The reverse applies for Shivans.

Bah, the Herc is the best ever.

And Liberator's right, after the Hammer of Light was removed from the Altair shipyards, the Thoth was what they used.  Tthough I'm sure a few squadrons of Vasudan Ulysses made it onto the battle field until they did.

I thought the Vasudan equivalent was the Tauret...

Tauret = FS2 & Herc 2 counterpart.

I think I saw Vasudans flying the Ulysses in Operation Templar.   I can't remember which mission exactly.

Best shivan fighter: Basilisk.

Its not the best stat wise, but i'd rather go up against 20 basilisks than 2 dragons.

i always liked the Uly, beat FS1 with it.

Scorpion? What's so great about the Scorpion? Always seemed to be easy pickings to me.

The Thoth was awesome. I remembered crying tears of joy when a wing of them came out of the Pinnacle and hauled my 4%-hull-integrity ass out of the fire from a squadron of Shivans after all my wingmen had been minced (ahhhh, I love Insane). :yes:

All of the Vasudan fighters were good. Even the Anubis was fun to an extent. ;)

Meh, the only Shivan fighter I fear is the Dragon.  All other Shivan fighters tend to die quickly even in Insane (where I usually drown in the sheer number of enemies and the utter uselessness [even as fodder] of my wingman).

It's actually hard to hit dragons until you get the trebuchet and can sit back and pick them off at long range.

... yeah, and picking them [Dragons] up at long range is also fun, because they tend to close in so fast that you can shoot one down, lock onto another and perhaps even launch until rest of the goddamn pack is already overwhelming you.

The mission I actually hated the most in FS1 was Enter the Dragon.
lol wtf
