GTF Perseus fast, manuverable, best dogfighter in the GTA

Re: Favorite terran fighter
il take the perseus, it can get out of situations where the erinyes or ares fails. it can carry the fair amount of firepower for the manoverablitiy and speed of the ship. the only fighters that could possibly match it, are the SF Dragon and the GVF Thoth probably.

i wouldnt choose any ship like the erinyes because its 'your early grave' on insane skill.

QFT = Quite ****in True?

Go Ares. Heil the missile capacity and armor!!!

 
Re: Favorite terran fighter
I thought QFT was short for "Quoted For Truth".

As for my favorite fighter, probably the GTF Apollo (yes, I know it isn't in FS2)

Re: Favorite terran fighter
I used to like the Apollo, that was until I fired unguided rockets off it. The gunpoint positions are too far off centre IMO. :sigh:
Inferno plz

Yesh, upon playing the Plato mission again I found it was a lot easier to aim using the Valk. But I believe the Apollo was originally a bomber. Look at its size relative to the other ships.

Re: Favorite terran fighter
The Perseus is a good fighter but I'm never a fan of interceptors. I like lobbing missiles at people. ;)

 
Re: Favorite terran fighter
Secondaries are for the weak!  For that matter, Kaysers are for the weak!

Pegasus with Prom S =D


It's not the best or anything, but it's just really fun to fly something that fast and maneuverable while being a shadow in the theatre.  The Pegasus is probably the only fighter in Insane mode that reduces the difficulty of a mission significantly (unless you count the Ares in a few missions where it can snipe).

You forgot the 2+4 primaries, and the better weapon energy than Erinyes.

Re: Favorite terran fighter
Talking about its 6 primaries would probably draw comments like

"YOU STUPID TWIT THE ERINYES HAS 2 MORE THAN THAT YOU PRATT!"

(albeit slightly exaggerated)

But yeah.

Re: Favorite terran fighter
I say "pfeh" to the Perseus.  Give me the good ol' Valkyrie over it any day.  25 m/s faster at top speed, and an afterburner that you could hold down all day.  Nothing gets you into or out of trouble faster. :)

In terms of the poll, the GTF Clothespin, of course.  I <3 quads.

 
Re: Favorite terran fighter
the GTF Apollo is my favourite ship. Its underated alot. It is also one of the best ships designs ive seen.

 
Re: Favorite terran fighter
Ares ends up being the default ship...even though I think the ship kind of looks like a turkey. Does anyone else think it looks like a turkey? It's got the big belly, and then that colour scheme...but I think the Erinyes is one of the best looking ships I've seen in any sci-fi verse in a long time.

I go with the Myrmidon, its a good all around with weapons, missiles, speed and armor plus its the only fighter wich can be a serious treat for capships, specially cruisers, thanks to those 2 Helios, I really like flying this fighter-bomber. :) A Vasudan version of it would be cool too.
