Re: Most hated shivan fighter/bomber
Well, you know how well they've placed the guns on a Sekhmet. Pity they're quad-linked. :blah:

Using SReds might be good on the Osiris.

Re: Most hated shivan fighter/bomber
The Sekmhet has (I believe) the equivalent of six guns (4+2), due to the fact they're quad linked.

Re: Most hated shivan fighter/bomber
Yeah, but that means you shouldn't really take Maxims unless you don't forsee the need to dogfight.

It only has the quad-linked slot, no second gun slot.

No, it only has 1 quad-linked primary slot. 4 guns in total, all linked. Similar to the Thoth.

Re: Most hated shivan fighter/bomber
:wtf:

Quad-linked = Four guns of the same type

How many guns does the Seraphim have? Eleven?

Re: Most hated shivan fighter/bomber

11, but divided into 3 sets:

2, on the tips of the arms,
6, in the middle of the arms,
3, on the three lower spikes.

If all 11 were linked you'd get a fearsome rate of fire and massive damage with the Maxim...

Re: Most hated shivan fighter/bomber
Yeah...with eleven Maxims, you can pulverise shields with one hit, and any hull in 0.5.

If you could actually get them all to hit, that is.

Re: Most hated shivan fighter/bomber
The Seraphim is pretty scary when you first encounter it in Silent Threat. The three Seraphims can take you down pretty quickly if you approach them from the front.

I know, but it has the firepower of a Myrmidon or Hecules because of the fact the four guns it has are quad linked  :rolleyes:

i.e. "they're" means "the four guns the Sekmhet has"

This does limit its versatility, but it has slightly more primary firepower than an Ursa, is extremely maneuverable for a bomber, and has perfect gun placement.

So the delay is x1.5 the norm when 2 different banks are used? Ah. Ok.

Re: Most hated shivan fighter/bomber
Four, in two banks. They're moderately far apart. Not an issue when going after Hercs, but you may have trouble hitting small craft like Pegasi with both.

Yes, but because of the Seraphim's size and shape, many of those eleven guns are in positions that are horrendous for dogfighting (I've tried it, although it was with Shivan weaponry which is pathetic). They're better used on cruisers and transports (part of the reason why defending the Lambda transports in Apocalypse is difficult). Now, if they were arranged around the centre of the Seraphim's hull, it would be much better to kill fighters and bombers with.

A dragon with 11 primaries, would have the Dragon look like a hedgehog that would make the enemy die from laughing than fear.  :)
