So I've been on contract work away from home for the last couple weeks which means being away from my main computer resources, so I've had a fair amount of time to read and process and think and in that process a couple thoughts cropped up into my mind from the later Wing Commander games, specifically Prophecy. In Wing Commander Prophecy, it is stated that the F-106 Piranha is a Diamond Back exclusive. Now I had always assumed that meant that in so far as the current roster of fighters on the Midway was concerned it was exclusive to that Squadron. But in my readings I noticed something. We never see anyone else flying Piranhas besides Diamond Backs. Like even during Secret Ops where it would make sense that we would see victory flights of fighters or patrol craft and the like, we don't see Piranhas. So, is it possible the Piranhas were exclusive to the Midway squadron? If so... why? I mean the Midway was on it's shake down cruise, you know the trip where you iron out the kinks in a new ship. Was the Piranha a new fighter class going through it's real world trials? If so why on the Midway? That kind of task is better suited to a veteran carrier with an experienced and united team. Then there is the Devastator. If you look as it, it has the same red and black 6 legged paint job as the Shrike. The Shrike was pretty clearly stated as being used by the Black Widow Squadron while the CIC manual stated that the '3rd squadron' would fly the Devastator. Now in game this third squadron turned out to be the Wolf Pack squadron. The transition from using the Panther to using the Vampire supports this as the Vampire is not available for you to use until after Stilletto mentions that you got a promotion to the new squadron. Likewise the Devastator is not available for you to use until after this point as well. So... why does the Devastator have the Black Widow paint job? Was it originally Wolf Pack and then it got transferred to the Black Widows? Did Rachel and her team really go through the effort of repainting after it got transferred? Was it a development hick up and the Devastator was supposed to available when you got moved to the Black Widows but got changed?
