or dont have the two-days (or more) charging time in the middle of a battle. and engines would slow that time by consuming energy. i think using beams subtracts from built up energy to, so the saths engaged in battle DEFINATELY wouldnt use it.

I know that Inferno isn't canon!

<for you :P>

1) How do you know that the subspace weapon of INFR1 was intended as an antiship weapon? In ITDoH, if I remember well, it is used to accelerate the shockwave coming from Capella. An indirect use we could see in a planetary bombardment. Many things are possible with FRED;

2) Two days of light pulsations, but just a few seconds of intense ones. *cough*Cutscene*cough*

Just something I remember about how the Lucifer whacked Vasuda Prime.  Didn't it use only those two beam weapons for something like 12 - 18 hours straight?

The Lucifer fleet bombarded Vasuda Prime from orbit for thirteen hours straight.

That comes from FS1 :doubt:

The Lucifer did the job, I don't think other Shivan ships bombarded the planet.

Also, remember that many Vasudans attacked the Shivans. They couldn't destroy the Lucifer, but they surely destroyed many Shivan ships. And are Cains, Liliths and bombers able to bombard a planet?

1. Yes, it's from FS1. But I didn't start this. He did *points at boewolf*.
2. I'm quoting canon information which states that the fleet bombarded Vasuda. If by that they mean that the Lucy bombarded the planet while the other ships just idled there is not of my concern.
3. Again in the command briefing it was stated that several attacks were launched from nearby installations. All of them failed (well duh, what'd you expect from an attack against the Lucy in normal space?).
4. Dunno. Maybe they can drop something there? Maybe the bombers could bomb some structures on the planet or somethin'?

Off-topic, but where'd Akenbosch go?

I think that cruisers/'vettes (I know that this is FS1, I'm just saying)/destroyers could bombard planets with laser/missile fire. If Newtonian, A missile would continue indefinitely.

Well the health & safety people made missiles self-destruct when they run out of fuel. Apparently the Shivans have health & safety people too.

Did he get banned, or am I thinking of Takashi?

Anyway: I agree that the cruisers in the Lucy fleet took part in the bombardment of Vasuda Prime. It's the old argument of "did the Shivans have BEAMZ in FS1". I think the front of a Cain/Lilith looks an awful lot like the cannons on the Lucy, therefore they had beams, though they never used them in-game.

And, please, let's not start the "FS1 Shivans had beams" argument in here. I'm only stating my opinion.

He was Taka, or his brother.

EDIT: And WMC (or someone) found incomplete beam code in FS1.

The missile/bobm would burn up in the atmosphere of the planet (if it was anything like earth).  Considering vasudans have spaceships, I'm assuming they need an atmosphere to breathe.

Neither Terrans nor Vasudans are shown with breathing equipment in the Command Briefing cutscene in FS1. Infer from that what you will.

i say that they have pressurized cockpits, like the SW Xwing. the suits are just against shrapnel (if the control consol blows up, but the main part of the ship is intact) and in case of atmosphere leaks, it instantly pumps oxygen into the suit, turning it into TIE-fighter style life support.

Re: Bombs burning up in atmosphere, how come the harbingers tech entry states that they were primarily reserved for planetary bombardment then? :P

Maybe Harbingers were made so they didn't burn up in the atmosphere?

Not all planets have atmosperes.

  
But the only planets worth bombing would.
