Favorite terran fighter
Well i think i've added em all. Let me know if i missed one.

My favourite would have to be the Myrmidon. It packs 6 gun banks, 3 missile banks, and can carry helios torpedoes, so it doubles as a bomber. A wing of Myrmidons packin helios' could easily take down a corvette.

Erinyes... can do everything the Myrmidon can do... only better... as for taking out capships... the Erinyes can disable them in a few seconds and then bomb away with Trebs

Re: Favorite terran fighter
Much as I love the intercepters (and the anti-son-of-a-***** machine that is the Erinyes), I gotta hand it to the Pegasus.

I love the design, and when I flew it, I fell in love. Beautiful flight characteristics. In a level FREDed for TAGing, nothing beats the thing. And there's something immeasureably cool about being mostly invisible, especially when you have to deal with freakin' AAA beams.

Aside from the Pegasus, definitely the Erinyes. Or the Perseus, if I want to dogfight instead of own everything in one pass.

Yeah, where's the potato?  We demand the potato!

You're not the only Ares lover here, BS403...

In lieu of the Great Potato though, I'll take an Erinyes.

Re: Favorite terran fighter
The Enrinyes has great primary firepower (assuming your good at managing power systems), an a decent secondary capacity. It's speed and maneuverability are okay.

[(Kaysers + maxims) - power systems] + (harpoons(16) + trebs(6)) = awesome^86

Re: Favorite terran fighter
Technically, the Myrmidon is a joint-venture Terran-Vasudan development akin to the Ulysses. To be accurate, you should either take of the Myr or slap on the Uly.

Anyway, I vote for the Pegasus. You can't hit what you can't see.

The Myrmidon is more in the vein of the Apollo than the Ulysses... really the Ulysses has no real successor... none of the new fighters in FS2 are really very maneuverable... except possibly the Terran Mara.

Thats why its 'space superiority'.  It is superior to everything, if used effectively. It can take out fighters, bombers, cruisers, corvettes. a wing of myrmidons, in the right hands, can rip a corvette , and any fighters with it, to shreds.
