Sometime I'd like to get a look at those storylines...

I think Alpha 1 is just that good. I mean, if you think about it, Alpha 1's kill score by the end of the campaign is greater then that of many of the great aces of history.

Why compare WW2 air combat and space combat in 24th century?

Petrarch: Damn.

The Aquitane is damaged in the nebula remember, when it jumps to GD it then heads straight for capella and once there heads straight for vega, do you not remember this? it was heavily damaged i nthe nebula and in the mission they say the aquitane needs to be covered in its retreat and then the debrief says she will be heading to vega for repairs, so just before the supernova mission it jumps to vega but leaves its pilots behind to cover the transports/cruisers etc

It left at least its elite pilots behind to help. According to the Subspace tech entry, fighter-jump-drives are prohibitively expensive -- not all GTVA fighters have drives, damnit!! -- which means the Aquitaine likely hauled most of its fighters back to Vega with it.



Say, I wonder what would happen if someone made a campaign where the player and his squadron (and maybe a couple small capital ships) have to carry out guerrilla attacks in a hostile-held system because their fighters have no jump drives and no one can extract them. Twould be interesting, especially if you had to team up with pirates or rebels that you were fighting earlier in the campaign. (I'm not talking ITDOH level, just... what if a small unit got cut off in Regulus, during Warzone, or something?)

Don't look at me, I've already got 2 projects going here. :nervous:

I released all the Reci storylines when we shut down and publicised the internal, y'know.

" when an orange or apple comes into view this should be easy to kill, just point and shoot with a Subach HL-7 thats simple enough. however, if you come across a kamikaze watermelon i suggest you get all of your wingmates to attack it because its just so powerful, one of these buggars crashed the aquitane's decomission ceremony and destroyed it...Petrach and a few other escaped in a pod but were covered in watermelon juice....it was horrible:eek2: :shaking: "

last message log of a kamikaze pilot:

Pilot: WWWAAAAUUUUGGGGGHHHH!
Command: Pilot, what the hell are you doing? You're going at the wrong target!
Pilot: I want to blast the Aquitane!!! I shall pilot my watermelon to the death!

To consider the Earth as the only populated world in infinite space is as absurd as to assert that in an entire field of millet, only one grain will grow. - Metrodorus of Chios
I wept. Mysterious forces beyond my ken had reached into my beautiful mission and energized its pilots with inhuman bomb-firing abilities. I could only imagine the GTVA warriors giving a mighty KIAAIIIIIII shout as they worked their triggers, their biceps bulging with sinew after years of Ivan Drago-esque steroid therapy and weight training. - General Battuta

lol, quite possibly we may need a mental isolation room at the HLP complex for us to go in when we have our spazy moments
