You can be sure of that, the Colossus own any Sathanas from the sides.
The Shivans are focusing in puting all firepower on front, that is a mistake, a huge one, you need small ships which firepower on front, like the Rakshasa, the Lilith which her LRed, the Aeolus and Deimos, the Sobek... anyway, but larger ships need to have massive firepower to cover all sides. The Colossus just need better reactors and get rid of all of the Laser turrets, and reemplace him by anti-fighters and anti-warship beams.
The Colossus is just too big to have any use of the laser turrets... well all laser turrets are a little obsolete.
The GTVA need to remove the laser turrets, improve the reactors and place beams and more flaks on its ships.
The point is, you actually NEED ships which firepower on all sides, and also firepower on front, and them you need smaller ships which much firepower on front(Aeolus), and other one which mostly of the firepower on front and also firepoer on sides(Deimos), the Deimos just need to have 4 forward beam turrets, their just need to reemplace those laser turrets for anti-fighter beams, or anti-warship. and add 1 anti-warship turret on each side.
For me, the Terrans have better ships, just need a little work on them. The Shivans commited a big mistake on making ships only which firepower on front(Sathanas, Rakshasa, Ravana)... what their are planing for? just make hit and run missions? Well I have no idea on know to considerate the Cain, Liliths and Moloch, their can fire on front and sides too, just which a limited angle. The Demon can fire on sides and front too, if the ship is biger enoght (those 2 laser turrets on the front of the Demon are very good to put another 2 LReds, but that will make the Demon even more powerfull than the Ravana.
