Bombers. Definitely.

A half-assed fighter with a decent pilot can do just as much damage nearly as quicly as a bomber, and survive an encounter with most things as well.

I don't remember- I think it was Warzone where you were supposed to take down a couple Shivan capships with a Perseus?

And your secondaries ran out instantly? And it was still an easy mission?

Cruisers. With beam cannons and the Maxim, they are really just useless now. Remember that FS2 nebula mission, where you found the second Knossos? With a Maxim, how hard was it to take out those Shivan cruisers?

With backup, an Aeolus can actually be quite vicious. Some of them are also very nasty when in groups- the Fenris, Leviathan, Mentu and Cain just plain suck, tho.

I prefer cruisers and corvettes over destroyers though.

They serve as much better fighter/bomber screens than destroyers do.  Plus corvettes can do better damage than the destroyers.  (This is a size:power ration here).

Although I still get worried when a leviathan jumps in, four aaf's that centralized can be a major problem, especially after one mission where the same ship nailed me with three of the aaa beams.  *ouch*  (And I'm not talking 3 shots, I mean getting slammed by two shots from 3 different cannons.)

And then there was the time I walked in front of a BGreen...


But I don't know why some of you hate cruisers.  They're just doing their job.  It's a world where you can kill anything smaller than you.

Cruisers eat Freighters and fighters, and AI bombers.
Corvettes eat all of the above.
Destroyers (are supposed to) eat corvettes with difficulty, but still take out cruisers.
Juggernaughts eat everything else.

Lillith's of course, are a seperate ship class and are excluded from these rules.  As they should have armed it with an SRed, or maybe a fast-firing shivan slash with better damage than Vslash.

Though has anyone noticed that Terran ships don't have many missle mounts?

I hate FighterKillers. At least Cains are easy to kill.

I hate corvettes. They've got loads of AAA weaponry, fighterkillers, and flaks guns, making it a bombers worst nightmare. The only thing that is even remotely a challenge in Rebel Intercept is the Amakuni. And thats a Deimos. And funny thing is, when you're supposed to guard a corvette.... well, they die kinda fast then. ;)

Mmm. On second thought, the thing I hate most is an Aeolus with invulnerability settings.:D

That's because destroyers rock. They're big, mean, pack a helluva punch and can carry fighters and bombers. They're the ultimate all round ship.

No.  What I mean is that Freespace is in our future (Well, Lets Hope Not).  Your reference to that Pilot Exchange programs "back then" would be irrelevent because Freespace/Freespace 2 is supposed to be in the future.  The War of Deneb won't happen until both of us are in the ground (or in space).  (I'm not going to discuss afterlife destinations.)

I hate the freighters because they're so damned weak and can't even defend themselves against non-moving asteroids for crying out loud.

hmmm, i dislike juggernaughts because they're a pain in the rear to kill and they suck in ship to ship warfare, too much bulk for too little firepower.  I would prefer a few corvettes to a destroyer, and i would prefer a few destroyers to a juggernaught. (with a few wings of bombers of course)
