Re: Unified answer,Fleet numbers, how's it all laid out?
well if you count just the GTA at about 13 fleets you would stii get at 2 destroyers per fleet 26 destroyers about 40 cruisers (which i believe is an understantement , im putting 3 cruisers per fleet here) and an average of 78 corvettes.

Now considering the fact that 24 Aeolous class crusiers are considered very few i would imagine the GTA to have at least 3-5 times that amount of Fenris and Levis. sure they are beeing phased out but they are still around .

And we are not even counting here the Vasudan navy which seems to have a lot more corvettes then crusers.

Oh yeah...now that you bring that up, I realised that I hardly see the Mentu being used. :D

The GTVA should just switch to an all Orion, Deimos, and Aeolus fleet.

You base that on in-game assumptions. In the Universe the Hecate is far better than the Orion.

Perhaps, but keep in mind that Aeolus cruisers are expensive to build and maintain. That's why only twenty-four of them were built.

Re: Unified answer,Fleet numbers, how's it all laid out?
That is never stated in the game. All that is said in game about the Aeolus is they're excellent at taking down fighters and that that there were 24 of them made, no reason was given why only 24 of them were made.

You base that on in-game assumptions. In the Universe the Hecate is far better than the Orion.
Quote from: Tech Description
The new GTD Hecate class of destroyers is replacing the Orion class as the flagship of Terran battle groups. More heavily armed than the Orion, the Hecate also carries over 150 combat spacecraft and a crew of 10,000. The GTD Aquitaine is a superb example of this new ship class, serving as the flagship of the Capella-based 3rd Fleet.

It says it's more heavily armed, that's it. Far better isn't included in there, only replacing and better armed.

There are several examples of ships being replaced by newer, inferior models in history. The Kirov for example, was a highly impressive but difficult to maintain ship, and only one was ever made.

Actually, there were at least four of the class, but they were built with significant alterations in weapons fit and sensors between ships so they are generally considered seperate classes though all use the same hull.

What else will you base your opinions on, in a universe which is made up almost entirely of in game action?

Re: Unified answer,Fleet numbers, how's it all laid out?
Hecates rock at killing fighters, Orions rock at destroying cap-ships.
But then we have to argue about the role of fighters that are stored in the destroyers' hangar bays in a battle and so forth.

But I fear the Hecate more than an Orion - being a fighter pilot.

Re: Unified answer,Fleet numbers, how's it all laid out?
The Hecate has a messed up turret layout, like the Iceni. As a result, I can't tell where the AAAfs are most of the time. If I have to attack one, I'd be dead before I knew what hit me.

An Orion's AAAfs are concentrated on the top and bottom. You can fly around the ship and destroy all its beam turrets without coming under AAAf fire once.

Re: Unified answer,Fleet numbers, how's it all laid out?
If I want a ship to protect me and fend off the fighters attacking it, I'll choose a Hecate.

If I want a ship to actually kill other capital ships, I'll choose an Orion. :p

The Iceni is terrible because its loadout is not symmetrical. :blah:

Re: Unified answer,Fleet numbers, how's it all laid out?
And because it has a different loadout every time it appears?

Well, at least they're place where the Iceni can use them both in Rebels and Renegades.

Yeah, otherwise it'll be dead. Were they pointing at the Mentu or the Sobek?

Sobek IIRC. The Mentu's no threat to the Iceni anyway. No beams.

Both ships appear on the same side of it.
