shivans can use unstable jump nodes, remember? the sathanas got through without a knossos, so why cant more shivans get through?
shivans can use unstable jump nodes, remember? the sathanas got through without a knossos, so why cant more shivans get through? you'd want many powerful ships that require minimal crew (and perhaps even automated ships, or atleast turrets). and they would probably replace blob turrets with something better (FL style ion cannons, fighter weapons, more beams). the fs2 fleet was, after all, the fs1 fleet with streamlining and beams.
IMHO its a no go for another Colossus. The GTVA should focus instead in rebuilding its fleet and, instead of Juggernauts, they should build super-destroyers.
Would the GTVA concentrate its resources into making more destroyers and corvettes, or an improved Colossus design, bearing in mind that it would take significantly less than 20 years to build another one.
The Colossus took 20 years to build and was probably extraordinarily expensive. I don't think the GTVA would try to fight in the same way as the Shivans who obviously outnumber the GTVA considerabley. Taking another 15 years and who knows how much money to build something that was destroyed in minutes would probably not go over well.
Building superdestroyers would require design phases, testing, prototyping, for the Colossus that has already been done.
The first Colossus was a top secret project, that's why it needed 20 years to complete. All GTVA citizens and most members of the military knew nothing about its existance.Try to imagine a debate at the General Assembly..."These guys want to know why all their money wasn't used to build up a destroyer"The construction of the Colossus must have proceeded slowly. The second Colossus would be constructed in about 10 years or less, since every single GTVA citizen would be called to help.Try to imagine a Post-Capella GTVA, where even civilians know the importance of having a powerful fleet. People would donate their money to contruct a second Colossus!
