fighters:
FS1 Apollo ( ive fly in him all campaing ) and  Dragon
FS2 Tauret ( much better than herc 2 ) and my favorite Aserhoth:)
bombers:
sekhmet ( iv hasnt saw him in capmaning but in muli is the best )
and Seraphim ( 12 cannons that a real fire power )

 
The Bat isn't such a bad fighter... it steers nicely, carries enough missiles for its job, and besides, it's not easy to get a lock on it visually - it's a thin line in space. (as opposed to a Myrmidon, the next-in-line space superiority fighter which has a radar blip the size of a bowling ball - you can't NOT see it coming :drevil:)!
A Seth is a terrible thing to waste. The reverse applies for Shivans.

Yeah, the Myrm is a giant flying target isn't it.  It's only saving grace is the Helios capability, even if it is a typo.

It had better have high-poly debris, too. After all, that's virtually all you see of the Anubis. ;)

Yeah... Not exactly what you'd expect of a space superiority fighter. I could understand the old GTB/F Athena, that thing was more of a multirole ship than anything. Then again, to a degree, you could say the same for the GTB Zeus.

On the topic of Anubi, they aren't anything BUT flying debris. They were used as kamikaze craft, remember? :D

Even pre-shields, the Apollo could kick the ass of anything in space. Including Saths if you've got enough patience.

Best Ships Ever Used: Ares&Ursa
Worst Ship: Loki (And because i'm sadistic i place the player into one of them almost in every mission i design).
Basically, the more missiles it carries, the better.
The Best is Yet to Come

 
My favorite Terran fighter is a dead tie between the Apollo and the Enyeries (sp?) A close second for me is the Perseus. My least favorite has to be the Myrmidon. God damn, I hate flying that thing. For some reason, I am not that big a fan of flying Vasudan craft...... I don't know why or anything, their all good ships, but I just don't like flying them. (And for those of you who want to fly the Anubis in FS2, check out the Pandoras Box campaign...) And I agree with most everyone that the Dragon is the Shivans best fighter.... What I do whenever I see one of them is target it right away and send my wingmen all after it, as I'd rather deal with swarms of Shivan Basilisks and the like than one Dragon.

Dough with Fish... my feelings for the Dragon exactly!! ;)

To see how hard is to hit that bloody thing you only have to play the FS1 mission where you have to disable one on insane...

Best Vasudan Ship... Tauret anyone?

Terran... light bombers (athena and artemis) rule!! :rolleyes:

Best All-round fighter: Apollo, Mara
Best Multirole Bomber: Athena, the Zeus comes close
Best Lightning Bomber: Athena, Artemis DH, Hydra, Artemis
Best Interceptor: Valkyre, Horus comes close, Dragon (unless you're given one with Shivan statistics {sliding, correct ETS ect.}, than its on equal grounds with the Valkyre)
Best Assault Fighter: Hercules (it takes practice and a spin-capable joy to use it - it has massive firepower), Erynes (the ETS is unbalanced, you'll have to be a spider to keep it in rein), Herc 2 (I really miss my 4 primaries as one slot)

If they didn't **** up the stealth, it would've been a great fighter. But without stealth it's worthless.

The Aeshma is worse than the Basilisk by a long shot.

LOL @ highest blood pressure. You love it when you fly it and you hate it when you don't.

The Scorpion rules, the dragon has poor weaponry ('tis a bit like the serapis) - In FS2 the Erinyes (whee - I can spell) is pretty good, and the Perseus (it's a shame they took out my favourite, the Valkyrie). The best bomber is, and will always be the Ursa.

Worst vasudan ship ever made: The Bakha bomber. It can't carry assault weapons, it cant carry bombs. Its not a fighter. Its not a bomber. Its crap.

Worst terran ship ever: Zeus. No need to explain. Crap Hull, crap weapons, slow, easy to hit, ...

Worst shivan ship ever: the Aeshma (gotta love spelling!) fighter :D

Yeah. You'd think someone would do something about that. But the GTVA went down the road of making the pegasus instead so if you wanted an upgraded loki you'd need to look for someone cut off from the GTVA for at least 32 years. Hmmm. Now in which campaign would you find someone like that  :drevil:

Problem with that idea (upgraded Loki in Sol) is that the Loki didn't see action until Silent Threat which was post-Lucifer destruction. Unless Sol has the plans for the Loki, they would have never used it. One would assume that they would have the plans though, but that assumes that all fighters are designed and built in Sol. If a fighter was built by an non-Sol contractor, and the fighter only saw limited use with the GTI before Sol, it may have never really been used in the system.

It can't carry assault weapons, it cant carry bombs. Its not a fighter. Its not a bomber. Its crap.

     The Bakha carries Cyclops as standard, and also carried the Helios in Bear Baiting even though its not allowed it in the ships.tbl

Actually it can carry Helios, only in its primary bank. ;)

Wonder what they were smoking when they put that in...
