Hercules mark II  for weapon load out , cause you can carry a lot of EMP missiles , well I like that ship only when emp missiles are available, when not I like the perseus , armed with full tempest missiles

Re: favourite canon fighters.
Don't really like allowing my allies to use EMP missiles.. it gets very annoying.

If the electrical nebula-esque EMP wasn't bad, getting killed by a ton of friendly EMP missiles is.

Yes, but hitting your target while firing and dodging is harder... ;)

Re: favourite canon fighters.
I've been finding it near impossible to do both at once because I have to line up my sights, which makes me vulnerable.

Re: favourite canon fighters.
Then try my way. Constantly fly in random directions and hope some of your shots hit something. :lol:

No, it's hard, you can't hit a Dragon on Insane difficulty on an Ares with Prometheus R's with another Dragon behind your back period

even if youre the "pro" here doesn't mean you can't outsmart the AI on hardest difficulties with the crappiest fighter

also you can beat the aeolus you cant beat the deimos arm your pegasus with prometheus r and harpoons see if you can disarm the whole ship
With the rapid increase of FS fan-made campaigns, we're giving the GTVA a harder time with more violence and genocide.

Re: favourite canon fighters.
Simply put you couldn't beat a Deimos anyway unless you had the proper weapons to actually take it down unlike a Cruiser.

Who the **** uses Prom Rs?  I mean seriously, they're probably the ****tiest direct-damage primary in the game.

Re: favourite canon fighters.
They should only be used if you want to prove how badass you are:
-beat the game on insane (with fury AI), using only Prom R's (if available)
-order all wingmen to depart immediately
-no secondaries

Also, delete your pilot every time you die. And Final Destination only, of course :p

I can never hit anything in an Ares, period. I hate that ship.

Re: favourite canon fighters.
I agree. It's same deal with other heavy fighters, too. The gun placements just don't agree with me.

IDK why they were such a big deal in the FS universe. :lol:

Re: favourite canon fighters.
Nothing to do with gun placements. To be honest, they're not that bad on the Ares. It's just that it takes an hour and a half to turn around and try to point the guns to your target. Not to mention reaching firing range of your target to begin with.

The R version is da best weapon of all....Joke. I don't know why [V] implemented them.

But I like the Ares. You have to shoot from distance, it isn't the best idea to go into knife fight with that thing.
"Ka-BOOOOOOOOM!!!!"
"Uh, Sir we can hear the explosion."

Re: favourite canon fighters.
Yeah, I figured cause it's slow, but even with it's enhanced shields and strong hull, flying it just makes you too much of a target. I prefer the Erinyes for heavy assault roles.

I think their gun placements are just fine, they're a little above the reticle but the grouping is tight.

According to QD the FS2 reticle is off-centre anyway.
