For example, look at today's Prowler and Vanguard. The Prowler has a rounded model whereas the Vanguard is more blocky and square. Now take a look at the PS:N version of the NC's Reaver and the TR's Mosquito. The Reaver is much more blocky than the Mosquito and I think it has to do with it being a NC Reaver.

This could easily explain the huge difference in model design and why the color doesn't stick out much.
That's exactly what I've always wanted to see in PS and the first thing I thought when I looked at the screen.

In gameplay terms, there's no reason to not have different looking models that function the same way. My dream is for an empire specific model for every vehicle that functions like the empires philosophy, but then also have a common pool variant as well. That's obviously excessive on development though.

On a different note, I'm really interested to learn how these aircraft work. The reaver has skids, but the gal and mossy have wheels. Yet the mossy and reaver both look VTOL, where the gal doesn't (I thought the gal kind of looked like it had flaps).

Something just occurred to me. I kind of assumed that they'd remove the vulture from the game maybe and go with one bomber, but what about the Wasp? That was a rather different aircraft with a special role. I wonder if that's joining the battle with a new model.

I enjoy flying in the wasp. Hope it makes it into PSN but I have my doubts.

As mentioned here before, this moskito, especially the cockpit area, looks very different in design than the Reaver, which leads me to the assumption, that we might see more empire specific vehicles/aircrafts. Personally I'd welcome this change (empire specific aircrafts), even if it's just a (small) visuall difference.

Nobody has said this is empire specific yet. It may just have a different look because its a different vehicle with a different role and different requirements.

I should have said anyone good at A2A fighting doesn't like the wasp. Why dog fight when you can pull an i-win button?

Lol you think I don't use the Mossie, you're a funny guy! Also the chaingun on the Wasp is godly.

Quick edit: Wasps are so hard to defend against right?

You're saying it looks different, so you assume it could mean its an empire variant. I'm saying it could just look different.

I hope it's more then just a visual difference for aircraft for each faction. Imagine one faction being more equipped with better air to ground aircraft where another is better against air to air.

I'm not saying that it should be a large difference, but enough difference to make it slightly harder on the faction going toe to toe with another that's better equipped with the situation.

I'd also like to see weaponry changed for each of the standard vehicles to fit that factions appearance more.

By all means have a mosquito for every race, but each mosquito should be slightly different in statistics, and not just visuals.
