True. I'm not sure but it might, however, affect the speed what bomb goes at the launching moment. I've not tried it actually, but I think it goes so. :)

Yeah, but it slows down pretty quick.
It would be intresting if that did actually work though.  Currently the only skill involved in launching a bomb is flying in a straight line for 8 seconds without being killed.  Not that thats not hard, but i think a dumbfire bomb would be good, aim it yourself, take speed into consideration, and off it goes.  Add a bit more element to seemingly repetetive bombing.

Is there something else that I should know that would make that work? When I tried pushing the K button when it was targeted in FRED2, it didn't do anything. Ya see, I really really don't know how to use the FRED2 program. When I tried to make a massive battle mission, I wound up putting so many cap ships and various starfighters in it, that it kept crashing back into Windows.

It's the K button.  Make sure you have the ship you want selected too.  I think it also scrolls through subsystems as well.

:D:DI FOUND IT, I FOUND IT!!!:D:D For all the other's that haven't yet, I'll tell ya. Ya fly all the way to the back end and the turret is right under the main engines between the end of the ribs and the bottom of the main engine. HALLELUUUUIIIIIIAAAAAAH!!!!:D:D(And I still don't know how to use the derned FRED2 program. I found it by flying around the rear end of the Sathanas.

I have played this stupid mission so many times now (around 60 or 70 times, I think) that I can usually get everything on insane. :p :D

I guess it's a scramble mission, so only Bakha in it. Not sure, no time to check. :)

Redfang is correct.

That makes me wonder though. Do you ever get to fly a sehkmet?

I don't think you get in the main campaign, and that's too bad.
