Hey,Woo:why the Dallie is "ATT" now?Either it was a typo, or it means something like 'Tactical Transport'
Heh heh,I have a 5 months old dog,Dalia,and I nicknamed her "Dallie".
But if the Terrans did create flak guns, why were they not used in the V-T war?
I mean that it isn't a V invention but an adapting of a 40's weaponry to a space combat environment instead.
Tha Kahlan isn't canon....
I don't know why in Inferno the Shivans have developed new techs,the should use the same ships for thousands of years.
Also, when it said "A Moloch jumped in" instead of "A new Shivan warship of corvette size jumped in" was undoubtedly because the Alliance encountered some the Molochs early in the Nebula campaign before Alpha 1 encountered one in that mission.
Also, I assume that the Shivans have had beam and Flak cannons for thousands of years before the Great War but they didn't have them in FS1 because they only sent their scouting force (The Great War Shivans) against the GTA and PVN and were assuming that they would be enough to deter any threat, be it a Shivan force with or without beam weaponry. Also, they had the Lucifer with beams and I'm sure Volition could have put them on every Shivan cap ship (Ever played the FS1 campaign Black Horizon?) Also, they didn't for balance reasons but story-wise, it was because the Shivans were confident that the Lucifer with beams and a shield and other Shivan warships without flak or beam weaponry would be sufficient to destroy the Terrans and Vasudans. But Volition could have put beam weapons on every Shivan cap ship and had the Alliance steal their beam technology.
About the Moloch,it should be exact what you said.But originally only the Lucifer was supposed to bombard the planets,scouting force or not the Shivans were supposed to have them in the Great War,no matter of what we see in FS1.
Except for Sol:A History,I didn't know other fonts where the beam cannon research was based only on the Lucifer flux cannons.
Anyone remember the Taranis?I know it was destroyed too early,but maybe someone had sufficient time to gather important datas and safe them from the Shivan rage.the Lucifer was also scanned,but it's beams are much different that the ones developed by the GTVA in the post Great War period.
If the beam technology was stolen from the Lucifer,how do you explain that Shivan beams in FS" are much better than their T-V counterparts?Just a different energy reactor?
