The hopper drive? I didnt think Confed used that. I read, I believe on this site that, when the Pilgrims declared war on Confed, confed's argument was that the restrictions were only placed on the Hopper Drive and they were using different technology.
In relation, no they weren't as bad, but their losses did prevent them from pushing on to Earth after McAuliffe. Confed's losses were horrendous.
Several legions of Imperial troops caught in their assault craft (much the same as what happened in 2667 at Vukar Tag), a few battlewagons and some lighter ships. I forget the carriers losses, but recall that one was lost jumping in system because of a bad jump.
I also finished the smaller cruiser class ship which was used to design the Concordia class
I looked up ship class names from this forum but i know i dont follow the Wing Commander games neither in style neither in lore but her hope i dont offend anyone with my back lore for these ships.
I named her TCS Fortuna , a Tallahassee class cruiser.
