The Slash beams fire ever 10-12 seconds, which is about right.

UEF Lao Tze probably ? The only BP2 fighter that has it's name to public ( and that's the only info of a BP2 fighter ).

I doubt we'll get any screenies soon. This video was probably mostly meant for BluePlanet fans not to go crazy. j/k

Re: BP: "Darkest Hour" preview
You can see the player fighter briefly when I switched the view to external. Should be enough to give a clue what it is :) It will also give an indication of what the majority of Earth fighters are going to look like as well.

Cool. I can't wait.

And Darius, you know that if you press "V" it acts the same as "Y" but selects the subsystem/turret in the reticule? I am commenting on the whole Deimos thing where you couldn't find the right turret.

Wow. Pretty neat stuff. I'm just wondering: does the Karuna have anti-warship beam cannons?

So the Earth armada doesn't have any beam weaponry at all?  :(

Re: BP: "Darkest Hour" preview
It's really looking that way...the railguns are beautiful. A nice change from beams.

The scene with the Karuna charging in firing on the Deimos looked like a moment from (Galactica spoiler)
Spoiler:
Season 3, where Pegasus makes its final run on a group of Cylon base ships.

I also like the fact that the railguns don't do a ridiculous amount of damage. I like the feeling that the Earthers are in some ways quite outclassed by those beams.

Agreed. That's exactly what I did thought when I saw it first time. That's why I love this weapon.

The United Earth having railguns balances out the GTVA having beams. With the railguns they can do immense damage accurately to enemy turrets and also beam turrets, knocking them out. Sometimes that's why I think that railguns in some places are far superior than beams.

Well I have to say railguns are 100% original, by now quite a few mods have them.
