Shivans will have new small ships?
Will Inferno have new shivan ships that are not big. I mean like a new frater, or transsport, or crooser etc....?

How many original FS2 ships will be left, anyways? I expect you'll preserve the Orion, Hecate, Hatsheput, etc (big destroyers) and maybe the Myrmidon + Herc II, but could you give a list?

Geez.. bigger != better.  

Make the ships too big, and they're just pretty backgrounds.  Why not have some new escorts and stuff?  Those are the interesting ones.

I want a new Corvette as I don't like the Moloch, but all our attempts haven't been good enough to be completed. The smallest new Shivan ship we have (not including fighters and bombers) is the Diablo.

Erm... why are you saving the Seth, while discarding the Tauret?

Speed
Seth: 55m/s, 120 A/B's
Tauret: 65m/s, 130 A/B's
Guns
Seth: 4 (2,2)
Tauret: 6 (2,4)
Missiles
Seth: (40,80)
Tauret: (100,100)

The only things that the Seth has going for it (IMO), are a large amount of countermeasures, and a tiny cross section.

Also, i have criticisms of other classes being kept as well:

GVF Thoth: Old. Between this and the Serapis I prefer the latter, which is not only newer, but more maneuverable and faster.

GVB Osiris: This is just plain old. All it has going for it is its 2 turrets, since its missile bays are tiny for a bomber...

GTC Leviathan: I can see why you wrote the Aeolus out of the MOD, there having been only 2 dozen of them to begin with. And the Fenris was cannon fodder. But the Leviathan is horribly slow. Perhaps an engine/reactor upgrade is in order.  

GVC Aten: Unless you added turrets to this, there is little reason to keep this instead of the Mentu.

GTB ArtyDH: I thought the DH version was just a test platform for a new reactor, except with 1 less tail fin, and a niftier paint job. So by the time of Inferno, all Artemises would have that reactor but still have the old white paint job. Or are you repainting the DH model?  

Why did you drop...

GVF Serapis? Aside from its paper thin hull, its not that bad.
GVF Tauret? It can use the Kayser. The only bad thing I found was the lack of Maxim usage.
GVF Horus? The Vasudans won't have any interceptor class without it, unless you use my idea for the Naunet... email me if your interested...  
GVC Mentu? It can take about 4 times the damage of the Aten, and has 10 more turets. Great antifighter/antibomber ship, whereas the Aten is pathetic, so...

GVF Thoth: History thingrequired later on.

GVB Osiris: This is just plain old.  

GTC Leviathan: Past thing and see end of post

GVC Aten: Past thing again

GTB ArtyDH: The DH version was the upgrade, it's now a common bomber

GVF Serapis? Don't like it  

GVF Tauret? replaced by the Apis

GVF Horus? replaced by the Ennead

GVC Mentu? see below:

Cruisers are removed from most missions because they are replaced by the Corvette Classes, as said in the Demios Tech, it was designed to replace these ships. Well by the time of inferno, most cruisers are obselete

And you seem to be forgetting that the Seth is much..cooler..than the Tauret.

It's the space turtle versus the flying Apsu-Hek!  

Besides why keep the Seth, which is a T-V war era design, over the Tauret? Why not replace the SETH with the Apis?

And why do you all like the Seth over the Tauret anyway?

Because it is superior. End of discussion. You can't compare stats, and expect to find a better ship. It's the feel of it, the look, and the maneuvering. You either like it, or you don't.

Whether you all like the Seth or not, I prefer my oat-and-bran fighter.  

IMO i just prefer the Tauret over the Seth, because of its stronger weaponry and better speed. The Seth is good, dont get me wrong, its just I think the Tauret is better.

No point in arguing any more tho. Seeing how you all like it so much, I'll keep it in the Eden Project, and delete the Thoth instead.
