It depends on this: the beams are fired by the aeolus? If not, pray for that poor ship!

In fact when i was in my fellow Erynes, an aeolus was the last thing that could worry me. Well, after those ridicolous ships come  from the great war...

But if the aeolus are now equipped with those beams.. WOW!

I spoke about the beams, not about the Aeolus. It's just an insect...

I know, but if an Aeolus with those beams can worry me, i don't want to encounter anything morre than that!
Just try to imagine an Hecate with those beams. Or the ex-Colossus...
Well now put those beams on the new MT capships...

Maybe if u didn't play the game on very easy, you'd realize that the Aeolus could rip apart your little fighter with its heavy flak and AAAF in seconds!! The Aeolus kicks a$$!!!!

And they don't come from the great war they were built after the great war, just like a lot of the new ships in FS2 like the Sobek, Deimos, Hecate and Hatshepsut to name but a few.

Oh and Styxx EXCELLENT work on those new Electrobeams!! i'll be sure to nominate you for the Nobel prize this year!     they're pretty sweet.

I would MUCH rather go against an Orion in a fighter than an Aeolus. You go near that thing and the next thing you notice your shields are outpummeled and hull integrity is at 30% before you get out of reach

Exactly Jabu, I remember playing the mission "Kings Gambit" where you have to blockade the node and blow away all the NTF ships that come thru the Node. Well a whole wack of ships came thru like an orion a couple Deimos a leviathan, and 2 Aeolus, well the 2 most difficult ships to destroy were the Aeolus since u could barely get near them would being swatted down like a fly with flak!

My fave mission. The one with the Mjolnir's, right?

The Aeolus were real tough. I mean, they were so small the RBCs usually missed them and they were real tough to take out in a fighter...

Yep thats the one !   it's probably my fave mission too !   yep the RBCs did usually miss them Aeolus, or if they did hit them they only hit for like a second.

Yah but the Electrobeams are Anti Capital ship beams right? not anti fighter beams, so it would only be a pain if you had to defend a capital ship from another capital ship outfitted with these beams.

Aeolus is woefully underrated by most people. It's still my favorite cruiser.

Heh, the Electrobeams are much more than just anti-cap beams.

There is not a single type of electrobeam - last time I checked our internal docs there were around seven of them - ranging from anti-fighter to heavy anti-capship beams, and some other... unusual setups.
Probably away. Contact through email.

Well, i don't like this kind of attacks to my person...
Especially because you dn't know what i have or i haven't done.
Maybe i didn't played the game oon very extra mega ultra hard, but i have enough experience in Multi-player to say that with the right weapons with one or two passes i can rip apart an aeolus.
Obviously, in the single player campaign, everything is more deadly in multiplayer because you don't have respawn, but i can assure you that the aoelus still have the same firepower.

Have you ever tried to make some missions with FRED2? Well, if not, I tried once and i was thinking on sending the mission to SW...
But that's another story. What I want to say is that some type of beam cannons were either anti-cap and anti-fighter beams. Obviously against a fighter they weren't much usuful, but against a bomber they were deadly. For example, in the mission in multiplayer were you have to destroy an hatsepshut and another ship... Well, the same beams of the hatse that usually fired against cap ships, they were firing against fighters and hitting them...

Oh, and about the ships came from the great war, i was talking about the leviathan...
