Granted the Galaxy is slow, granted the skeeter is fast, but the Galaxy can take a pounding, we all know it can, and the skeeter can take, well lets just say dont fly it in strong winds, the Galazy does have turrets, arcs unknown yes but turrets none the less, the skeeter will be zipping around, shooting it up, but heres my bad comparision: take a PT boat and attack a destroyer with only its 5 inch, the pt with its 50 cal. Sure it will riddle the destroyer with fire, lotsa little holes, but will it hurt it? Not really. Will the destroyer beable to hit it much with its 5 inch? Nope, but when it hits it, that PT boat is gone. The Galaxy's Guns are of course not super powerful, itsa primary role is a heavy armored air transport, and its guns are only point defense, but me thinks it could swat a few of those peskey skeeters pretty easy.

Tobias, put this in your sig line. It fits you well:

"I have never been wrong in my life. I thought I was once, but it turned out I was mistaken"




I like the Reaver myself. It has to be the "OMG Kick Ass!" ship since they haven't even shown it to us. Their saving the best for last.

Carefully reading the description of the Moskito, it desribes that it is not as powerful or armored as a light gunship (I assume another aircraft). The reaver is described as a medium gunship.

So I would assume that there is another aircraft that is inbetween a mosquito and a Reaver. So all you light fighter pilots may still have a better craft waiting for you.

you need to go back to school, medium comes after light.

Much smaller and less armored than a light Gunship, Mosquitoes are however faster and more agile.
This means there there is a light gunship that is not the Mosquito.

The light gunship would be between the mosquito and the reaver.

Lexington_Steele was actually correct for most of his post... he just got the description of the Skeeter wrong:

"
Much smaller and less armored than a light Gunship,
"

So he's right. It's entirely possible that there will be an aircraft that is between the Reaver and the Mosquito.

But going strictly on what Lexington_Steele said, Afex is correct.

Everyone all un-confused now?

The comparison of Galaxy to misquito is like comparing a flying fortress to messershmidt.

The Galaxy is a big flying brick. It wont be able to move very well unless its flying straight. A single Misquito can probably kill a Galaxy, however the trick is getting close enough to do it. Several misquitos increases the odds.

I think people who try to use a Moskito as a stand alone killer will be misusing it. (I am sure there will be an outfit that perfects the mass moskito hit and run tactic tho)

I doubt they'll put something in it they don't want you to use. If the thing is usable in such a way, use it! Or they shouldn't put it in (or completely downgrade its weaponry). And every n00b has to learn dozens of rules about what's lame and what's not

Yeah and you need to be born again, raised in a proper way by some proper parents. Even if he's wrong you don't need to respond like that. I've seen you do that on several threads now, including a couple on the PSI boards...

Speaking as someone whose primary goal is to flly a Galaxy, I hope it isn't an effective fighter craft. It should requre escorts, stealth and a good measure of luck to land a squad deep in enemy territory.

It would be nice to be able to hang around and provide fire support afterwards, but at the same time I'd hate to see people using the transport craft to crush snipers or vehicles.

Anyone who thinks the Galaxy will be good at air combat is well, stupid.

Just look at the pictures of it. Look at the huge blind spots in front and behind! All a mosquito/gunship has to do is sit in that blindspot and fire away; and if the galaxy tries to turn the other aircraft will outmanoeuvre it.

So the Galaxy will need an escort to be effective.

Cool


My original post was about killing things via crashing them into things, now you all compare them to real life things, and i say if in real life you did not mind dieing to blow up that tank via crashing your <big plane here> into it then people would use them. Also blowing up those AMS by crashing like 4 galaxys into them seems a good idea.


Also for those who says the galaxy is not powerful gun wise, go here and click on the dropship ready for deployment and look at the guns on that baby.
