212 Squadron - "The Old Man's Eyes And Ears"
Dragon1 said:The only figure that really perplexes me is the mass of the carrier. 3,250 tonnes for a ship 725 meters in length designed for long-range operations and complete self-sufficiency just seems way too light and doesn't mesh well with all of the others in pantheon of Wing Commander capital ships.
Well, I think the self-sufficency part comes into play with the mining of planets and creating bases in the Campaign mode. It stands to reason that the carrier could make some kind of outpost or waypoint that would help keep fresh supplies coming in.
