I personally do not care who wins when one on one. It is easily the Enforcer since the Hammerhead would get eventually tired of going back and forth. Even if the hammerhead would manage to win, it still does not matter. The question is which can survive more than the other in a larger battle. I just can;t imagine the Enforcer being my support since it would not be able to pull back and move behind me to replenish flux, although I can imagine using the enforcer as a shield for sure. Of course depending how one plays, one or the other must be useless. I know that since I love Sunder, I always look for a XIV model. This is why I said it is fine if the hammerhead remains as a crappy craft and then a MKII appears.

Eh, the gemini's drones feel more supportive to me.


I figured out what the difference that makes it for me is. Shepherds and tempests can regenerate their drones. Gemini doesn't. So it doesn't take long to deplete your drones and be out one of your useful tools.

I think I figured out what I really want, though. Fighters...  :p  Just taking fighters with a real carrier. I just hate how much it costs in terms in supplies. Talons are pretty cheap, though.

Back when there was just hangar space I used to rock a hound/talon combo. I guess you still can do it exactly the same way. Maybe I should play with that more.

No. No you cannot. I had forgotten that you have to refit fighters at stations without a carrier. No wonder I don't use them anymore.  :p

They are great for wasting crew and creating orphans on your side as much as the enemy's side.

well it does say average lifespan of talon pilots in battlespace is 2 minutes 40 seconds

which was about right way back..

now it's about 20 seconds (and maybe 18 of those are travelling to the field) :^)

still though, i miss using low-tier fighters. now i can barely make a competent escort force out of xyphos.

there was a time when broadswords, gladius (even talons, in numbers) were something to be feared.
