I cant believe the Ursa is winning. Its a giant hunk of junk that lacks any decent speed. True, it has turrets, and a large bomb compliment, but it lacks the maneuverability to defend itself, and presents a very large target profile.

For heavy bombing, the sekhmet. Its fast, maneuverable, has 4 primary gun banks, and a large missile capacity.


Remember fellow bombers, always engage your afterburners when firing off bombs. They will move faster that way !   :D

I've never had any problems defending myself in an Ursa.  Who needs speed and maneuverability when you have armor and shields that can shrug off practically anything? :)

The Ursa can't shrug off a lot actually. I've gotten fried numerous times by flak and heavy supressive fire (from BLOB TURRETS! BLOB TURRETS! THEY WERE HITTING ME!!!! NOOO!!!).

Those things pack quite a bunch. Besides, why fly an Ursa when the boanerges can carry just as much payload and provide a smaller target profile? It doesnt have quite the same gun bank, but who cares?

I prefer the Ursa over the Boanerges (spelt right? :nervous:) because IMHO the Boanerges is ugly :ick:
I know that isn't a good reason to prefer a ship over an other one, but...

Maybe if your on EASY it will be that way, but if you play the game at a harder dificulty, the ursa just flat out sucks balls, if you want to do the job right, you need a boanerges.

Nice to see we're on the same page comrade.

yep, and it also becomes a major challenge with the gun ports in the wrong place on the hard skill, then you got afterburners witch take considerable time. hence why i call the ursa a brick  :P

5 clicks and im all good. Dunno if any of you have played the STV Gauntlet, but the only way you can win it is if you snipe.

 

Offline Centrixo

there a several different ways you can win the gautlet. suicidal tactics, long ranged attack, hit'n'run, hide and seek.
lol not sure about hide and seek with a an ursa.
