GTVA Colossus VS SJ Sathanas
Just a curiousity.... How many Colossus ships do you think it would take to take down a single undamaged Sathanas class juggernaut. Anyone who made it to mission eight knows what I mean.

I think it would take at least twelve, including the 2880 fighters on board (if they all launch, not likely) . Who knows exactly how many fighters that monster has.
The statement below is false.
The statement above is true.

Re: GTVA Colossus VS SJ Sathanas
Just one if command knows how to use it.

I had a mini campaign idea a while back about a Sathanas that was found in Ross 128, command trapped it, and then destroyed it with only fighters and RBCs. It was focused in stages around the Sathanas, each stage had a mission and part of the Sathanas you had to eliminate. You started by luring it's fighter compliment into a whole bunch of sentry guns and you destroyed them, then you disabled the Sathanas and take out some subsystems, then you taek out all of it's turrets, then you got to sit back for about an hour while a single RBC took it out.

Re: GTVA Colossus VS SJ Sathanas
I did say undamaged didn't I? True, you could launch fighters ahead of time and slowly whittle it down, but that is not the point. Just a straight encounter, like the mission with the first Sathanas, but undamaged.

Re: GTVA Colossus VS SJ Sathanas
What is the least effective way to kill a Sathanas?


The way you're asking about. You don't just throw ships at the Sathanas.

Mission eight of what?

Anyway, it only takes one Colossus to take down a Sathanas, given that is positions itself intelligently.

Re: GTVA Colossus VS SJ Sathanas
Perhaps I should rephrase. A Sathanas, compared to the Colossus, in both firepower and armor, is superior in every way. It would take only three blasts from an undamaged sathanas to cook a colossus. So in that comparison. How many colossus ships would it take to match the firepower of the Sathanas.

*shrugs* In the mission where you try to make a distraction with the Colossus before you collapse the nodes, I only counted three blasts from the Sathanas.

Re: GTVA Colossus VS SJ Sathanas
To answer your question--two. One will die while the Sathanas is focusing on it.

You know they both could get behind it and shoot the living **** out of it.

Re: GTVA Colossus VS SJ Sathanas
In Head-on combat, 2-3 would be needed, from the rear, which is the sensible way to attack a Sathy, one would do the job perfectly well.

Depending on deployment, between one and three. If the beams are not overcharged, that number goes up radically.

Re: GTVA Colossus VS SJ Sathanas
Hmm. that I can agree with. In the mission where you destroy the first Sathanas though, three shots took the Colossus from 100 % to like 74%, and thats with only 2 cannons. Attacking it from the front is a bad idea I agree.

Re: GTVA Colossus VS SJ Sathanas
Any thing Transport and up going head on at a Sathanas (that is cannon) Will most certainty die.

Re: GTVA Colossus VS SJ Sathanas
Unless the GTVA somehow completes a juggernaught class ship. No matter how strong the Colossus was, it was still signifagantly weaker then the Sathanas. Though, if you  took the Colossus, and increased the armor plating at least five times over, It might have a chance head on.

Re: GTVA Colossus VS SJ Sathanas
If the Colossus had all its beams on a single facing like the Sathanas does, it would actually significantly outgun the Sath.

Re: GTVA Colossus VS SJ Sathanas
If the GTVA beam cannon has equal strength of a Shivan one. but by numbers... 4 against 8, you would probably be correct.

You seem to have made up your mind already... I don't see a reason to answer your question.

However... it would indeed take one intelligently implemented collie
