What's the Plan for the soc fleet?
Hello , I like this mod and i looking forward for the next realese.

But for me as old freespace fanatic, have some question that i hope you will answer.

Its not about the progress.^^

Its more about the soc, a like the idea that they have his own fleet.
But its really strange when i read the tech for the ships, most terran capital and fighter class ships are equivalent to soc ships, that make them in my opinion not very special.
Will give you the entire soc fleet the ability to jump between unstable nodes?
And why you not use the cloaking,awacs technolgies for the capital and fighter class, they have access to the best technologies from both races?
Will you make a Vasudan equivalent to SOC?

Re: What's the Plan for the soc fleet?
The SOC having a seperate fleet was scrapped in INF V1.5.
The Vasudans had the VCI in R1.

There's some special ops ships in progress for additional download and I may port over some of the SOC capships for the archives.
Giving them unstable node use ablility would make the Odin and Neptune not very special.
Cloaking doesn't work fully so isn't usable right now.

Thx for the fast anwser.

Soc Fleet scrapped, hmm. What the soc will be, a elite strike group or hidden task force with minimal support?
The Vasudans had the VCI in R1. Will they be exist in the new realese with own ships?
Neptune the new socsd?

I really liked the Neptune in R1. Once I discovered its Geodess missiles, it seemed even more kickass in my eyes.

I'm guessing Solaris dreadnaught will be the extent of SOC capital ship representation. Even then, it might just be an elite superdestroyer within the GTVA fleet.

The Solaris and Neptune are the only ships kept from that model set.

Actually, the banshee is still in Inferno as an advanced interceptor (along with the Lyre as a bomber). Woomeister was only on about the capital ships.

LoL, I have overseen that the neptune is a corvette.

Solaris dreadnaught? I have no seen such a kind of ship.

The Solaris dreadnaught was to be the flagship of the SOC fleet.  About 4-5 km long, very powerful.  Now its a GTVA ship as far as I know.
