BSG Craft vs FS Craft
I've been wondering, does anyone know of any FACTUAL information on the ships (preferably fighters) of BSG?  Aside from the history, not a whole lot of stats are given on any of the Wiki site nor in the show.  I do know that CDF and Cylon fighters and support craft (Heavy Raiders and Raptors) are multi-role fighter/bomber craft and that they are able to fight through the use of jets on the fuselage of the craft (aka "strafe drive jets"), that much I DO know.  Most everything else...Well, you get the point.

In addition, I've also been curious about how CDF and Cylon craft would fair against Terran, Vasudan, and Shivan craft.  I'd imagine the CDF and Cylon would have an advantage with their strafe drives, but FS ships would have firepower to compensate.  I'd like to know what you guys think, since we're all (I'm sure) FreeSpace and Battlestar Galactica fans.

Edit:
The list of choices are MY personal picks.  You're free to list any others if you have a preference.

Re: BSG Craft vs FS Craft
Well, considering BSG craft carry less armament then modern fighter jets and FS2 craft carry more firepower than an entire carrier air wing plus the shields to absorb said weaponry, this ain't much of a contest.

Not to mention cross universe debates are always a bad idea, second only to universe cross overs.

Well, fine, but I'd still like know about the stats of BSG fighter craft.
