LOL

Naaa... the extra room is for smuggling out all those military secrets to their corporate masters ;)

Call me odd, but I like the Myrm more than most other fighters.  The only ones I'd take over it, are a Perseus or an Ares.

Erinyes comes in fourth.

The Myrmidon is out of question for me since it can't carry my beloved Harpoons...
How is a pilot supposed to survive without them?

6 gun banks and a supply of Tornadoes?  You can't loose!

Depends what you're attacking. For an assault run on light cruisers and bombers, I'd take a mix of both.

And who rated the clothes peg so lowly? Deathstorm! How can you not respect the 8 primary banks? :D

THE HARD LIGHT ARRAY. Always makes you say wow.

 
I think the Erinyes has low subsystem armor. Whenever you take a hit in that thing your subsystem damage lights up like a christmas three with three to four suddenly up there.
   The Erinyes is alright but its not my cup of tea. The Tauret owns 'em all.

No it doesn't, the primary reserves are entirely too small.  I mean really, toss off two volleys of Prometheus and their drained, two @#[email protected]#$ volleys.
So as through a glass, and darkly

Where I fought in many guises,
Many names, but always me.

There are only 10 types of people in the world , those that understand binary and those that don't.

 
I guess it depends on your combat style.  I like lots of gun banks over missiles.

The reason I put the Ares ahead of the Erinyes is that whenever possible I use heavy fighters like turrets.  Sit'n sting, let the enemy come to me.  Erinyes isn't tough enough for that, which is why I put it second.

myrmi is more like the fighter-bomber i think, it's the GTVA multi-purpose fighter.

i never liked the bat, handles good, but lack of banshee-carrying capability made it end up far below valkyrie in fs1.
we won't mention the ully in fs2.

next up: dragon and mara's, can both be a pain in the ass, though mara's are pretty big, especially from top/bottom.
dragon's are mean, i like it, i mean, hate it.

well, both, it's a cool fighter.

"Damn, Dragon-class fighters entering!"

Why is the Dragon so much easier in FS2? :mad: I remember my first contact with Dragons. "Hey, I survided the first real Scorpion/Basilisk attacks, these are just more cannon fodder. Oh sh---"

I mean, I loved them and hated them in the same time. They were a real pain in the ass, a wing of them could easily run over any GTA/PVN wing until you got Uly. Valkyrie had too light shields to stand against them. And with crappy Interceptor/Hornet loadouts I practically always had to use my primaries - unless picking them up at long range with Phoenixes, which only takes down one or two.

Nothing stands equal to FS1-era Dragon in FS2, not even their version of Dragon. They [FS2 Shivans] are "just cannon fodder".
lol wtf

Because someone thought that 3 small bays are better than 2 big ones, plus the myrm has a bigger reactor (i think)

Isn't most of the space it takes up actually empty, what with the spikes and ****?

Erinyes... feh. Overrated. Most dogfights come down to missiles anyway, if you're not flying an interceptor (at which point you can basically sit right on top of the other guy and pound his ass to dust with primaries).

Well, since it was never actually in FS2, you can't just rate the Osiris by fan campaigns, or even your own... (no offence)... The only way to see the dignity of the Osiris is in some of the FS1 missions (the shieldless ones mainly, but both), when they would jump in wih several wings of fighters, and you'd have a decision... either take out the bombers and take heavy damage because you lack shields, or let them get into bomb range while dealing with escorts, and either have the capital ships take moderate damage, or hurt yourself a good deal from bomb explosions...
