Prometheus is a jack-of-all-trades type weapon. It has good overall stats.

Personally I prefer the Herc fully loaded with 6 Banshees. They suck up your energy reserves in no time, but I never was the type to spray the battlefield with gunfire, I prefer to aim carefully and make every shot count.
Nothing beats the satifaction when you nail a Manticore that's just barely in weapons range with a single pull of the trigger :nod:

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

I think we can all agree on one thing though.  The prometheus R is a steaming pile of horse-crap

That HellBat looks like a Cylon ;)

Ulys tend to be good at tying up enemy fighters/bombers. Even if they don't have finishing power, a squadron of Ulysses can be a severe headache for defence fighters etc.

Avengers are actually better at hull damage than Prometheus O or R, in terms of damage-per-second. I prefer the Avenger.

(The S-variant owns, but it's an apples-and-oranges thing, since the S is 2367 tech and the other two came much earlier.)

Avenger
Pros: Good fire rate (0.25), good hull damage, small energy usage
Cons: Mediocre shield damage

Prom O
Pros: Good hull and shield damage
Cons: Mediocre fire rate (0.3)

Prom R
Pros: Slightly better shield damage than Prom O, with 300m more range
Cons: More energy usage, poor fire rate (0.40).

Banshee
Pros: Insane shield damage, good hull damage
Cons: High energy usage, poor fire rate (0.40), poor compatibility.


Oh, sorry. The Prom R I describe is from my TBLs, not the craptacular one that most people insist on not balancing. :p;)

I think everyne knows my perfect ship and loadout.

Ares
2 Maxim, 4 Kaysers
72 Tornadoes, 13 Trebuchets

Firecrack, the erinyes can't generate the energy to use that loadout, unless you play on Very Easy.

In my experience, Ulysses last longer than most other fighters when flown by the AI.

Sure it can. Learn to conserve your energy. You can fire a few full volleys in a row, and that's good enough for killing fighters and bombers.

My favorite weapon so far, though, is from Into the Depths of Hell. The Malcifer fires slow-moving shots, so they need a lot of lead, and the individual shots aren't all that great, but that thing's rate of fire will let you rip through a Seraphim in an eyeblink.

The Uly was my favorite ship in FS1, bar none.

I was very sad it wasn't worth much in FS2 :(

Drive by post, sorry :)
