Yes, destroyers rule but I like frigates or corvettes. Small but deadly ;7

Agreed.  The Valk was defintely my favorite ship in FS1 (only reluctantly did I take a Herc in any of the last few missions), but in FS2 I was so glad to get out of the Perseus, and aviod them whenever possible.  

The Erinyes was cool, at first, but running out of primary weapons energy all the time sucked.  The only way not to was to sacrifice a lot of engine power, which made you a sitting, very well armed duck.  Conversely, putting all one's power to engines in an Erinyes accomplished practically nothing.  Now, the Vasudan equivalent, the Reshef :thepimp:, is a much better ship, simply for the engine performance (and because it is Vasudan, thus better by definition).

One thing i dont like is freighters, endless waves of bombers...and the fact in nearly every mission, you jump in, instead of being launched from a hanger.

I dislike the Cruiser class mostly. By the time the Second Great War, the cruisers we're fairly useless against Shivan forces. With usually one, weak Anti-Cap Beam Weapon, no flak guns, a missle launcher, around 2 AF and laser turrets. Plus you can destroy them easily, fighters can beat the hell out of it, Destroyers just incinerate it. I'd understand if it was used in backwater areas for purposes, but for the main systems, it has no use against the new weapons of the current time.

I do however like the Aeolus class cruiser, with flak, two anti-cap beam weapons, and laser turrets, it is the most powerful of the Terran and Vasudan cruisers. I dont know why they stopped producing them, they ruled the Fenris and Leviathian.

Freightors die to easily, don't you think the GTVA would armor their uber-multi-million-super-classified-stuff-enclosed-ship a bit more satisfactorily? :nod:

you do know thta all that uber armor was given to the collosus instead of to the transports...

waste of valuable materials if you ask me putting all armor on a single freighter that they send to the FRONT:jaw: :doh: :jaw:

Everyone hates the cruisers here I take it. No one thinks about the Lilith, or Rakshasa. Both of them can OWN small capships. And the Lilith's clusterbombs usually take out a bunch of my wingmates too.

So there should be better armament on GTVA cruisers, dammit! The Aeolus was the only decent cruiser they had, and they discontinued it!! Thus, the GTC Peleus and GVC Tuket are l33t. ;):D

Conspiracy! Khonsu II planted the idea of the Colossus in Terran ship designers! Code named "Operation Kvaniah A'La" (Translation: "Suicide Box") it was revenge for the T-V war, killing 30,000 terrans!

I don't like the transports. Ever looked closely at one that's docked? They tend to dock badly from a visual standpoint. (Often with part of the transport being inside the ship it's docked with.) And it's annoying when you have to guard a convoy of ships. You'd be taking down fighters then realize your convoy's moved away from you and getting pounded by fighters/bombers.
