Erinyes was soso(good mix of Speed, firepower, Tank and Agility but low on Missles and stored energy for the bigger guns). The Ares was the real Ultra Heavy Fighter(simlar to the Herc in FS I, while the Herc II compleetly sucked in FS II because beeing a much weaker tanked and armed ship) in FS II. Nearly 2k unguided Missles and all 6 Turret Slots for the biggest guns mountable(puls powercore that supports trigger happy pilotes) and realy thick Armor. Was a bit slow but how needs speed if you can kill next to anything in the Fighter Class with just 2-3 Seconds Focusfire or Corvets during fly by. Twisted Evil

Still wishes they would have made a FS III. Crying or Very sad

The explosions were amazing for the time and the plots for both FS 1 and 2 were excellent with great twists.

FS 2 was the first game I played where you had to die to win the game. Fallout 3 used the same ending 9 years later!

How wantīs to get out of a epic battle like this one? Surviving was overrated anyway since the endings where you die where much cooler instead of the "The Shivans will return but not to your livetime." While the the endings where you die describe you as front line Pilote that have seen all battles in the war and given his live in the final battle to let other Ships escape and save her lives. Razz

Realy reminds me at the Opener where a Skeleton next to a crashed Herc sends a SOS to get rescued, and the Background voice telling about the Great War in the first part that nearly killed Mankind and shut down a hole warp passage while taking on the Lucifer mid Warp to Terra.

I loved the WTF effect as even the command stoped counting incomming jugernaut class ships and you realized that you are in a battle you canīt win no matter how many ships you kill and the epic ending where the Shivans blown away the hole Solar System after using the force of 100 Jugernauts to blow up the sun and anything within the System(including ships, Moons and Planets) with the resulting Shockwave. Razz

They're basically naked angry women with wings.

Those remind me of "rumoured" ships from 4 years ago ... when I started my eVe career, there was a "Elite Mining Frigate" visible on the Market (if you unchecked the "show only available" box) that had the same stats, looks and everything as the T2 Bantam (Sparrow) on that website ...

So, to me, it looks like some really old "abandonned projects" that were left in the code ... and subsequently extracted to a database on the web ... without being really activated in-game ...

Freespace 2 was awesome. FS2_open wasn't all it was cracked to be though. The Ulysses looked awesome but it was kind of crap.

There're lots of campaigns and mods, including graphic packs which makes use of D3D8, for example(FSOPen). Kinda makes a nice comeback, flying all the FreeSpace with 1680x1050 res with hi-res textures and effects Laughing

Also, tbh, Ares/Herc Mk1 sucked due to **** maneuverability and bad weapon banks' positioning. Erinyes/Ulysses have it so much better tbh Laughing Well, at least for someone with 80% of his shots hitting targets Rolling Eyes

Hitting 80% off all shots isnīt this complex if you mostly go for big ships anyway. Razz
Also with both Herc/Ares you donīt dogfight much, you take out enemy Wings incomming allready on range. Also the huge diffrence was that the Herc/Ares actual where able to do more than fire short bursts and mount the most devastating and energy hungry rapid fire guns(Prometeus in FS I and Maxim/Kaysler on FS II, god I loved the shaking effect with my FF Joystick it realy feeled like using a Weapon, bigger than your ship could actualy handle Twisted Evil). DPS of 4 Kaysler and 2 Maxim Cannons(both extrem DPS and rapid firing with huge range) puls the ability to fire unguided Tempest Rockets to was actualy this devastating that taking out Bombers and Cruisers way faster than fighting other Fighters(that actualy melted in seconds to). Twisted Evil

Herc/Ares are pure win, give your target a bit room to manuver, donīt stick to close to it and destr0y it with a short burst if you manage to get it in your Crosshair, I loved the concept of a heavy Assault fighter that can dish out a extrem DPS next to constant and can take on even bigger ships nearly solo because of his extreme durability(send Wingmates after Fighters and focus yourself on the bigger Targets) there was only a single Mission(where you had to defend a Station till it was evacuated with several bomber waves from diffrent directions that required a quicker ship) where I didnīt stick to the Herc in FS 1 when it was avaidalbe. Cool

Ulysses and Erinyes was the little girls toyes in the fleet pricise and fast while the Herc/Ares was durable and steady that kills anything no matter of his size once into range, simply the real mens choice(with Force Feedback set to max on the stick) that made Combat realy feel like gooing all out there shoot them into pices. Twisted Evil

Will check for some new content on the Net, thx for the Info. Cool

Ares was badass forgot about that one, heaviest heavy fighter there was, that thing could take an almighty beating, but I still preferred the erinyes for omgfacemelting firepower

That and the Blade was the fore runners to the assault frigs. When they first appeared we was all drooling over the 100% resists to their racial enemy.

I did managed to see a blade on SISI a long while ago. And if iirc, someone managed to find one abandoned at a planet, but was made to give it up.
