Damage from one 4X bank > damage from 2 2X banks

Damage from 2 perfectly centerline mounted 2x banks in the best dogfighting and bomb-interception gun setup ever seen in a player ship in a Freespace game > Damage from a 4x bank with two sets of widely spaced firepoints.

The Osiris can mount Kayser too, but the firing points of the Osiris sucks.

Anyway, i will be ask a simple question, do you think that the destruction of the Hades will be posible by any other bomber than the Ursa?
i did it with a ulysses at 29% hull(the ulsysses not the hades.) twice.

I wonder why there are no Inferno bombers selectable...I have created missions where you fly Satyr or Jotuns and destroy Juggernauts, Superdestroyers and even one Gigas(I needed one hour for it!).

He said FS2 bombers only. Which means canon only. Not even FS1 bombers like the Athena. But if there were Inferno bombers available I would have to go with Callisto with Ripper guns, even if they're not that great, they look so cool and just have that I'm invincible feeling to them. 8)

Sure that isn't just the FSport tables?

 
u forgot myrmidon fighter esque speed maneuverability nd helios capability :P

maneuverable ? pfffft. Look at the Basilisk or Aeshma (i think thats how its spelt) . I dont know what class of fighters they are (Heavy assault), but they fly like a retarded seagull.

I'd do Myrmidon for any mission! Load the third bank with dual-helios, the first with Tempest, and the second with Stiletto II's! It is always fun to be the fastest, most maneuverable bomber in the game!  :lol: Can you add that and let us change our votes? I'd always go Myrmidon over Ursa.

This versatility enables Myrmidon squadrons to fulfill a range of combat roles, from light assault to heavy reconnaissance.
