Stealth is pretty limited isnt it? Could go all-out and be a complete support stealther. Grab medic, engineer & hacking certs, but then theres pack space..

There is no serious difference in speed between an agile and a reinforced armor. If you can use a reiforced armor, do so. The only reason to wear agile is to use vehicles that the reinforced can't. The reinforced armors can pilot only "open cockpit vehicals". I don't know if the galaxy is considered closed cockpit.

Indeed. Does anyone know if the galaxy is considered open or closed cockpit?

If you're asking if you can man the gunner positions in the Galaxy whit reinforced then the answer is yes.

Yeah, that's pretty much what I thought too at first. But the fact that they can be shot out of the cockpit would make it open right? So if all you could wear in the cockpit was agile, then you'd be much more vulnerable to snipers or other aircraft. I would think that being the case they'd let pilots proctect themselves better...

Pretty sure the Galaxy is the only one like this. Also, just because you can shoot through glass doesn't make the cockpit any less closed.

Well yeah it's closed, but what I mean is, if your gonna be able to bring a galaxy to a halt with a single boltdriver shot, that's just dumb right? So galaxy pilots should be able to wear reinforced to prevent that.

Agile isn't a singleshot boltdriver kill.. thats only standard and reinforced.

Reinforced is medium, agile is light. Truthfully I don't remember if you can one-shot an agile armor, so if not, I'm an idiot.
What about a mosquito tho? It could just fly alongside and and shoot right into the cockpit. Does it at least make sense that a galaxy pilot would be very vulnerable and should be able to pilot in reinforced armor?

i think that they should make the glass in front of the pilot in galaxies bullet proof or soemthing cuz man it seems pretty easy for a mosquito to just pull in front of a slower galaxy and unload in his face, sending the whole thing down. There are rockets, which are supposed to be used to take down galaxies and such.

But you gotta remember we don't know anything for sure until the game comes out.......god i can't wait........

DropShit eh? yea.....it can dropshit, like simba out the back of MY ship For fighting outside of a Dropship, If i eject it would be vera vera nice.....But helping the squad is staying on station to get them out if needed. If someone can shoot through the glass that could suck. Espcially since the Galaxy is supposed to handle like a pregnant yak
