    The original Vampire fighter?

    I remember picking up a science magazine 8 years ago and seeing NASAs new design, a spacecraft concept. My jaw dropped because it was a spitting image of the Arrow. Does anyone have any info about this arrow-esque ship? Did NASA ever move on it?

    Mission two - Fralthi

    I hate flying the scimitar, I didn't like it WC1 much either. Medium fighters are just average... I need an advantage somewhere, be it in speed, shields, guns or missiles. Average just doesn't cut it for me

    Best soundtrack?

    I'm listening to WC3's soundtrack and thinking this stuff is timeless. WC1 and 2 have great pieces, but they have shown their age over the years. WC4 has awesome music as well but something about the urgency in the WC3 music gets me going a little more than the darkness and betrayal in the...

    Not if I'm in one of those fighters

    Iconic fighter?

    The longbow.... Cats would tremble at the sight of that thing, what a beauty

    The Flash man

    In a sense Maniac was one hell of a pilot... doubtful that any cats or bugs could take him alone. Then again, in missions that required reliability and competence, such a escort missions, was maniac really a help? In most of the WCs he hardly responds to any command other than break and...

    WC4 Music

    i agree, WC4 music doesn't go in with standoff, it might be better for UE.

    Hey guys, I wanted to say that i absolutely love WC Saga. It's pure genious! The thing I don't love is the way the darn mouse operates in it. Contrary to the classic WC mouse operation, WC saga requires you to continue rolling the mouse, discombobulating space flight and making dog fighting...

    Flight Recorder

    I'm not sure I understand, so I'll try to make my first post clearer. I was referring to the helmet wearing pilots. The helmet-wearing pilots appear to be of three different kinds - they look somewhat different from each other based on fur color or location of their features. Let's say...

    Flight Recorder

    I don't want to sound nit picky but I've noticed something with the Kilrathi Comm Links. There are three types of cats: a cute Hobbes looking kitten with light eyes, a lion looking cat that is neither cute nor particularly ugly, and a real ugly kitten- something that would provoke a "you're one...

    The Flash man

    How many good ConFed pilots lost their lives one way or another through Maniac's flying? Catscratch almost did, depending on how you faired in that mission.

    Yeah but under that system, if the corvette bites it, the rest of the fighter escort is screwed

    Defecting to the Kilrathi

    Yeah, but who left him (Melek) in charge? There were probably other nobles who weren't in Kilrah when the T-bomb hit, they would be viable contenders for the leadership of the Kilrathi. Even opponents to the Emperor or Thrakath could have turned the destruction of Kilrah around in a way that...

    be vewy quiet, I'm hunting wabbits Good point McGruff. Would it make any difference in terms of notice on behalf of the enemy if one or a small number of bombers slipped in versus a full out bombing squadron with fighter escort?

    Favorite mission?

    Is it champing at the bit or chomping at the bit? Either way, that's what I'm doing in anticipation of this next episode.

    Flight Recorder

    Okay, this is what I figured. Bradshaw sabotages his flight recorder in back to back missions. Shouldn't he have taken a lot more flak, possibly face time in the brig etc? I was wondering why he wasn't scolded or punished doing it again, since the second time in essence proves that the first...

    I'm going on reason here, but what about efficiency? Why put a jump drive on anything that doesn't really have the range to make it worthwhile? Bombers are typically longer range craft and as such it might be more feasible to include a jump drive on them. Light fighters on the other hand...

    Requesting Info

    This made me think, at what point does a fighter go from being classified as a heavy fighter as opposed to being a bomber. I thought it was torpedoes, but as Chris points out, there are numerous heavy fighters that have torpedo capability.

    WC4 ending

    That's true, but even if he did decide to put the Black Lance to better use, it's more like sending the SS or SA to a Red Cross parade than anything else. If an argument for not using the Dragon afterwards is due to the negative association with bioweapons, then it should hold for those who...
