How many of that 80% are Auroras, Mustangs, Reliants, etc. Lesser fighters that will for the most part, if I'm not mistaken, fly CAP for our supply trains and retreat/resupply points. I'm not disagreeing with you, I totally think we'll have fighter superiority. And I just thought of something-the Vanduul are nomadic so maybe they wouldn't employ static bases and such. Something for the SFW to look for I guess. My point was that there could be more fighters than we expect right now, that's all. But you kind of already said that there'd be tons in the OP so whatever. It's a good plan-pull the fighters away, send in the bombers. Glads and Harbs go for screens, Tali's go for carriers. Cap ships play the support role. I keep trying to think of problems, and I am, but they're all Murphy's Law stuff or game mechanics stuff. It's pretty standard actually, it's a lot like what actual air assaults on fleets looked like in WWII, minus the mistakes and issues(Murphy's Law stuff). One more thing, though it's not real important. I think the Vanduul have another carrier-smaller and less capable in combat relative to the Kingship but more focused on being a carrier. Not sure though.
Last time they mentioned the Pegasus they said it could hold 30 fighters. Obviously that might have changed though. They said the Pegasus is more of a strike carrier than a fleet carrier. It's basically a transport for back-line raids and such.
never actually noticed that. Ok I was wrong about. CIG is still weird about hanger complements. Just look at the Idris hanger in the Morrow Tour. So much space is wasted, at least it seems like it is. Perhaps it's not and if it isn't then I wish CIG would explain that cuz it really does seem like they waste a lot of space sometimes.
Sure, we could have a hundred Dragonflies. I just don't see that being effective in certain engagements. Quantity does not instantly confer quality; a ton of shit is still a ton of shit if what you need is a gallon of gas.
I wasn't being serious about loading dragonflies into an Idris it was merely to illustrate the "if it fits it sits" point. Though I would be absolutely terrified if somewhere in the verse someone did that and deployed them all.
But back to the point of that. With our limited capital ship capacity which are small screen ships to begin with we clearly have a logistical nightmare trying to resupply ships and in particular bombers from them with the bulk of our fleet being ~80% fighters to begin with. The only solutions I can see is reliance on the capture of larger ships by participating Orgs or the miracle of manual reloading via EVA being put in the game. Seriously whomever is in charge of Logistics has a big problem right now and few solutions.
Fair, and I would be terrified too. It sounds like something Test would do, though.I think there was a discussion of a future Crucible variant that can rearm ships. That would only alleviate our logistical concerns, though. We currently have 20 Crucibles (one of them is mine) and 241 Starfarers (no distinction between regular and Gemini). We can set up a decent Forward Area Refuel and Rearm Point (FARRP) with those, but we really might need to set up planetside FARRPs in order to have a hope of supplying the Pitchfork Armada.I can probably run logistics, and my Master's thesis was on logistics, but.....it's a daunting job, and one with far too many unknowns at this point.
