The Bakha is actually pretty good too and can be used purely as a heavy fighter. It's comparable to the Herc II in many respects. Although it's a bad choice (compared to the Sekhmet) in the one place where you're forced to use it, in Bearbaiting. :p

I modified it to use the Sek and it wasn't any easier.

The Athena, it dont carry much, its weapon points are crap but is manouverable.
It's not a pure bomber, but what do you mean the weapon ports are bad? The primary weapons are so close together that it's impossible to miss anything. Now the URSA, I'd have to agree with you on that...considering that they're only good for hitting ships bigger than a cruiser.

 
isnt commander zane from freelancer ? :P

 
I remember in my n00b stages, whenever I got to that mission, I had to go to very easy, (I didn't know I could use 2 bomb racks at once) and eventually beat it, then it jumped out .5 seconds later, and mashed me, leaving me with 2 Hull Integrity, I was so scared I just stayed away from the Demon, a Good 8km out.

I've never had much trouble hitting things in an Ursa myself.  You just have to aim a bit to the side of the gunsight, depending on your distance from the target.  It's all about being able to adapt. ;)

yes Commander Zane is from FL.

Commander Jun'ko Zane, Abbreviation = Juni.
spoilers below to people who have not played FL in thier life, view at your own risk.
Promoted to Colonel by Orillion on the Osirus.

Orginally from Planet Kyushu in the Kusari (Japanese controlled) part of the Sirius sector Juni Grew up on Kyushu, when she was old enough she went to Libery to explore more possiblities, she joined the LSF (Libery Security Force), the LSF meaning, the American part of Sirius called Libery. for years she fought the Pirates and The Order before the engagement of Adimral Schultsky and the Donau.

After the Fight against being framed and finding out the Nomads have taken over the humans as hosts in Rheinland, German controlled part of Sirius. She then joined the ranks of The Order along with Michael King and Edison Trent with the rank of Colonel to push back the Nomads out of the heaviliy populated human controlled sirius.

Michael king another LSF officer, and Edison Trent a Freelancer (free man) a player controlled character.


that aside, the bombers.

it firing point is at the top back of the cockpit, and when your in a firefight that gun placement will make a few problems as ive seen myself, but notto worry i have adapted and learn quickly.

Well, in case you didn't notice everyone wanting the Athena in more than anything... :nervous: and hating the Medusa more than anything... :nervous: you get the idea... :D

First vote for Athena! :D
I can blow up capital ships in an interceptor if I felt like it...the Athena's just too damn nice looking to put down.
