Juggies suck!:mad2:

They're two big and don't have the same no. of guns vs. ship size of the smaller ships.

The Collossus is just poorly armed, period.

The Sathanas, with intelligent fleet deployment, is just as dead, only a little slower due to stronger hull plating.
So as through a glass, and darkly
The age long strife I see
Where I fought in many guises,
Many names, but always me.

There are only 10 types of people in the world , those that understand binary and those that don't.

Aten isn't too bad against fighters actually. (especially in my campaign :D) When it comes to warships though, it is almost useless.

My least fav. ship class would definitely be juggernaught, though.  It's horrid!  Lack of ship design, and over all shape.  (Sathy looks like a cockroach.)  The Colossus is an impractical ship design.

I would love to see a VASUDAN juggernaught.  The Colossus is primarily terran.  Of course. . .maybe the Vasudans are just too busy.

:headz:  :rolleyes:

My absolute favorite would have to be. . . .hrm. . .probably. . .nothing.  I think that if corvettes had a slightly stronger hull, and a fighterbay, they could easily replace destroyers.  Not to mention upping the size by just a tiny bit.  If only the Deimos, Sobek, and Moloch could be combined.

After having read up on the Colossus...

The Colossal Blunder(oooops;7 ) was considered to be a joint venture because the Vasudans funded most of it, and the Terrans designed and built it.  It was originally suggested by Emperor Khonsu II, so it was originally a Vasudan idea.

ORIGINALLY a Vasudan idea.  But then, they realized that it wasn't worth all that work, so they'd let the Terrans do it.  The kind of work they did, they just couldn't stop doing. . . .

Which is why I'm convinced there were no Vasudans in that ship......

You say that till you get a volley of Harpoons on your tail, then you'll lose all your hull in a few swift hits :p

Hey, what's wrong with the Perseus? (Apart from the obvious, I mean.) Like, in comparison with the Valk - I like them pretty much equally. :)

I prefer the primary weapon placement on the Valk (the center guns are great for killing turrets) but I prefer two secondary banks, like the Perseus.

I see lots of votes for freighters and transports, but no posts about them. Why not?

Well, I didn't vote and won't vote because I like them all, but maybe because they have the least destructive firepower. ;)
