If a man consults whether he is to fight, when he has the power in his own hands, it is certain that his opinion is against fighting.

There are very few recycled FS craft in TVWP.  Most ships are new.

As the Anubis has laser weaponry it is a spaceborne harvester of death next to these ships. :)

Oh snap, seriously? :o
To consider the Earth as the only populated world in infinite space is as absurd as to assert that in an entire field of millet, only one grain will grow. - Metrodorus of Chios
I wept. Mysterious forces beyond my ken had reached into my beautiful mission and energized its pilots with inhuman bomb-firing abilities. I could only imagine the GTVA warriors giving a mighty KIAAIIIIIII shout as they worked their triggers, their biceps bulging with sinew after years of Ivan Drago-esque steroid therapy and weight training. - General Battuta

 
YUM, candy...

These don't have lasers, and presumably ****ty guns, compared to FS1 era.
Gettin' back to dodgin' lasers.

Say, if the Anubis wasn't armed with... Vasudan... Light Lasers... but... Some gun ****tier than that (:wtf:), would it still be better than the unification-era craft?

Um. I think Nelson is trying to say that compared to FS1, the Anubis is the Shivan Scorpion when the GTA couldn't fight them on equal terms.

Well what I want to know is if the fastest unification-era interceptor does 50 m/s top speed and turns as slow as the Ursa...

 
Enough questions for today, thank you.   ;)

Direct comparisons between speed/damage points/etc. will not get you very far. Remember that there are a lot of other technical factors, like afterburners, missile accuracy, and even targeting computers that would change a lot in the 14+ years that TVWP covers. For example, jet engines of today are hardly more powerful than they were 30 years ago, but modern aerospace has advanced a long way in other areas since then. Suffice it to say that there will be an interesting mix of varying technical gaps between FS1 and early TVWP era.

The unification era craft are balanced against each other, and make for exciting missions.  There isn't that much value in introducing comparisons to crappy fighters from later eras -- nobody would want to fly a Nate in WWII, but it would easily tear up the best WWI fighters you could care to name.

No, what I'm asking is if ships turn slowly and move slowly. Nothing to do with later ships. I ask this because I want to know if its hard to move between waypoints which are far away from each other, and if ships are hard to turn.
