The problem with flying bombers on Insane is that they're, well, more realistic: they can't do their jobs without heavy fighter cover and tactical strikes to suppress flak.

A cross between the Pegasus and the Hercules... both really work for me.

The Perseus just... owns. 8)

I couldn't have said it better than myself. The Erinyes is nice, but it's a little slower than the Pers in maneuverability even though it holds way more; it isn't as fast, either. I'm an interceptor pilot.

Re: Favorite terran fighter
The Perseus was always more of a space superiority fighter to me... Kinda like a watered-down Valkyrie.

Well, the bombers with turrets (I think Ursa and Medusa) are also quite flyable on Insane, as the turrets can shoot down fighters quite well.
Every bomber without a autoturret is suicide if there are enemy fighters though :>

Unfortunately they're ripped apart by flak and beams at a much higher rate than lighter, smaller bombers. So it's a tradeoff.

Re: Favorite terran fighter

The Perseus is fast, but it's way too agile. Every time I fly it, I feel like I'm flying something worse than a Boanerges.

I like the Apollo because it was flat.

The Apollo is very cliche of FS1 in my opinion. I would vote for the Valkyrie as it is faster and more maneuverable than the Perseus, but it wasn't on the list.

I do, too.

It's one of my most favorite fictional fighters. :D
