Bomber: Taurvi, they are rare, but those bastards are hard to hit, fast, dual bombs, and they tent to dodge the dual trebs.

Fighter: Dragon, fast and hard to hit... Mantis are easier to hit than a dragon, but both dies in dual harpoons at distance.

in multi they are too damn hard to kill with 300 ping...

Re: Most hated shivan fighter/bomber
Fighter: Definately a Gorgon. In the mission where the SD Lucifer destroys the Beta Aquilae Installation in FS1, i remember i lost all the escape pods repeatedly thanks to just the two of them. And in any mission you have to face down dragons back then, it was allmost impossible. In FS2 i tend to just leave them to the AAA defences of capital ships...

Bomber: Definately the Naheema. Mainly because it can generaly out-afterburn you no matter what you fly... and that ticks me off.

I think you're referring to the Scorpion, not the Mantis.

That's the Dragon you're thinking of, not the Gorgon.  The later wasn't in FS1.

i loathe the Dragons.
Bombers, generally speaking the bigger they are, the slower they are, and the easier it is to stay on their six and put a barrage of fire up their tailpipe  ;)

I think he's refering to Manticores.

I couldn't help but laugh at the comments about Aeshmas and Basilisks being hard to take on in a bomber.

GTB Zeus . . . well it could be considered as a super-heavy fighter in any case . . .

 . . . but the Ursa being big and slow <better not think about it>

Re: Most hated shivan fighter/bomber
I actually find it quite fun to dogfight in an Ursa. It's also quite funny to see your wingman trying to out-turn a Ulysses. :D

Re: Most hated shivan fighter/bomber
You don't really dogfight in an Ursa...you try to keep your Kayser turret pointed at things.
Now, in a Boanerges, things get interesting.

Re: Most hated shivan fighter/bomber
Oh yeah, now that you brought that up... :drevil:

I always have problems aiming when flying the Boanerges. The gun doesn't shoot straight; it shoots upwards.

Re: Most hated shivan fighter/bomber
I knew there was something weird about the way it fired its measly 2 primaries.
His legacy will last until the beginning.

The Zeus' armor is so weak it can be taken out by a few Ma'at freighters.

It's a pity they were placed in such odd places. The Boanerges is capable of mounting the UD-8 Kayser, which would probably increase the pilot's survival rate a little.

Re: Most hated shivan fighter/bomber
The Bone is off-center, too, making it really hard to maneuver in addition to its horrible turning rates and speeds.

Re: Most hated shivan fighter/bomber
haha you whant something horrible? lets talk about the Osiris...

it can carry a Kayser but hell you cant hit a thing... and very low bomb capacity too... and the turrets are Prom R, with does very low dmg...

It could be a lot better if the turrets where Subach HL-7 and and have 4 primaries in that slot, able to cary 3,3,2 cyclops will be enoght...

Oh okay. I thought that ship class was determined by the weapon compatibility.

I never ever fly the Osiris if I can help it. It's primary guns are spaced out extremely far apart, making it hard to shoot anything up close.
I mean, in FS1 fighting a wing of Osiris was deadly without shields, but now with low bomb capacity ruining its strength in what is specializes at . . . well, at least there's always the Sekhmet  :)

Re: Most hated shivan fighter/bomber
I once tried dogfighting in a Sehkmet with Maxim loadout. Exetremely frustrating yet strangely satisfying at the same time.
