the Basileus is the only ship capable of out-ranging the GVD Apothess with its missiles.
Next release will be interesting (despite player being on the receive end of Basileus)
It’s not about winning some kind of stupid crossover battle, you lummox. You can just type big numbers into a table to do that. It’s about building gameplay which supports a story and a fiction.
You can’t call a government which stockpiles a massive strategic antimatter stockpile pacifist.
1) I don't like typical Start Wars vs Star Trek comparison either, but it's perfectly resonable to compare tactical application of similar class of weapons, even if their actual power might be order of magnitude different.
2) I can stock huge amount of arrows, sticks and stones, but I won't be view as militaristic. Hell, I could stopile huge amount of nukes, but without actual delivery platform I could still be relatively harmless to outsider perspective.
3) From what I remember, UEF had a huge amount of anti-matter production plants near the Sun - possibly for industrial/civilian application. Actually this might answer why they put them on those outdated torpedos, coz they didn't really considered anti-matter for actual wide spread military deployment. This means their main torpedos are probably makeshift of good anti-matter warhead with every single old torpedo in UEF stockpile.
4) I'll omnit the beams as this is not in favor of UEF, but still EA has railgun turrets vs UEF gauss cannons. Here UEF is better, due to spinal mount gauss cannons, but the problem is that Gauss are primary weapon of UEF, while EA use railguns as secondary weapon.
5) This would probably be arguable within BP universe, but comparing to EA I think the UEF is clearly superior in Fighter/bomber design and deployment tactic. EA seems to tread their fighters/bombers like BP Tevs (aka typical villan style wave after wave quantity deployment). This might change when we see end-game EA fighters/bombers, but I think EA will at best close the gap, but won't be able to beat UEF in this area.
UEF - pacifist, caught off guard with the war they didn't prepared for.
EA - militaristic, actually start the war, for which they were preparing.
I find it ironic that UEF logo use the militaristic looking Eagle, while EA use more peaceful looking Phoenix (but this Phoenix is actually, one thing I unconditionally love from new EA style).
I don't want to driff off topic for too long, so I'll stop with UEF-EA comparison.
