Highly skilled? Sure(Although I did get straight dumpstered by the Zervium on my first attempt). Veteran? Nope, I started playing Freespace open in 2012 or something, I'm no veteran compared to some people here.
I thought recording and uploading all the talky bits was a bit of a waste honestly since they'd take way more time to upload for me than for anyone else to just read/play? through. They don't really change with difficulty much either.
And yeah, I spent like 5 minutes looking for that damn rubber ducky because I forgot where it was
The dragonfly lacks glide and glide is insanely good both for swinging back behind someone to get a lag pursuit curve and for covering long distances quicker. I don't really think my aim is good enough to take full advantage of the increased firepower either.
The Ostfront mission is a huge furball with missile trails and lazers everywhere, I love it.
Probably the most replayable mission too as it's almost all action with talky bits just to let you rearm and repair.
EDIT: Compiled my deaths into a little fail compilation, shows how quickly you die when you screw up.https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=eT7CH-XVk-g
