Re: Total size of GTVA armada
Speaking of subspace jumps,

I thought I could survive an arriving Colossus in one of the NTF missions (where the Colossus' beams don't work on the Iceni) but was immediately ****ing ground to death. Unfortunately it wasn't like the Sathanas, I managed to take only about 30% damage as it was the curvy "spine" on the ship that hit me, pushing me away at 400 m/s and saving me from any more massive collission pressure. However, the Colossus hit me squarely with its frontal downward-protruding "chin engine box" which was perfectly flat. It was like being hit by a train.
With the rapid increase of FS fan-made campaigns, we're giving the GTVA a harder time with more violence and genocide.

It's not an NTF mission. How did you manage to get hit anyway? I've played that mission countless times and I've always managed to avoid getting hit by the Colossus.

Re: Total size of GTVA armada
Dunno, it just so happened I was exactly in the place where the Colossus was warping out, probably 6-8 kilometers from the warphole. Then I was too clumsy to avoid it before futilely frantically diving, diving, diving, and hitting my burners.

Which reminds me, that was one of the missions were you could actually command capital ships to do your bidding. Honestly, it's always fun to get capships kill other ships for you. I recall commanding the monitor to fend off an invading Aeolus (forgot the name), then in an instant, it did a mad turn and quickly decimated said cruiser.

You never know where the Colossus will jump from is until you've finished that particular mission, or in another case, you'll just notice it 1,000 meters ahead of you and immediately get swatted like a fly by one of its protruding beam/engine towers.

"Avoid the Colossus which will crash into you in 4 seconds, pilot, and you won't get hit!" :p

But the Monitor jumps out after the Colossus arrives.

Re: Total size of GTVA armada
The Colossus still needs to jump in first and tell the Monitor that it is relieved and did a great job holding up the blockade before the Monitor jumps out. The original location of the corvette is a safe spot if I remember correctly, so flying around that area should more or less guarantee that you won't get hit by the Colossus.

The location of the Fortune's a given safe spot because it is there throughout the entire mission.
