the 315p is made for exploring with its scanning package and is the second fastest 300 series with its tr-4 engine. So if a stealth armour(?) can be added then i think we may have a winner for recon. And the tractor beam on it can be replaced for the mass driver along with missiles for the inner wing.
I'm actually thinking that I may go in unarmed. It's ballsy but with what we know of the stealth mechanics at the moment it may give a significant bonus. My current planed setup is an M50 with Stealth armor and, if necessary, a jump drive; with the guns and shields removed, fuel tanks in place of the missiles, and the lowest signature engine and power plant I can get my hands on it should do a decent imitation of a hole in space.
That's incredibly ballsy! Personally speaking, I would want to keep at least one cannon for defense if the proverbial hits the engine turbines.
I'm looking to get involved in this theatre 100% I'm most comfortable solo or in a small, trusting group.
Any ideas for a clever group nickname? I like "The Ghosts" and it's derivatives (wraiths, specters, etc), but I think it's a bit too cliche. Anyone up for "The Drifters"; I think this'll be what we do more often than not, set a course shut everything down and just drift.
I was walking home from work when I suddenly thought to myself, "Phantom Forks".Now I can't decide if it should be some variant:Pitchfork's PhantomsPhantoms of the Fork...C'mon somebody roll with it.On second thought, maybe I should call dibs on the moniker and get ambitious enough to lead/organize a bunch of rag-tags to get some serious recon done. It will be interesting to find out if stealth mechanics will make a "sniper" roll feasible or not. A small group armed with powerful, long-range and/or guided weaponry might be able to weaken or destroy high priority targets during the full-scale engagement.
Jaustin89, can I get you to organize a list of the people and ships they've offered for scouting in the OP? Jack Danials and I are going to start trying to get these threads a little more organized for when DFM gets here.If someone is volunteering, please make it clear you need to know if they will be flying with a specific organization or not. People in organizations will most likely be taking orders from and reporting to their leadership, not necessarily the OPPF CENTCOM. So it will be more valuable for us here to know which independent scouts are volunteering, since they will be in need of resources from the Operation Group itself.
Sure. You want it as a public doc, or can I just keep it offline? Also sorry it took this long to reply, I just found out about the end of life issues with SSD's the hard way (no data loss fortunately but the windows install on that drive was corrupted).
Online would be best, Jaustin89, kind of like the Asset Roster. No worries about the late reply, I've had a busy week, and next week is looking much the same. Besides, it's kind of easy going until the Alpha starts right now, anyways.
Assuming its suitable, I'll be using my Banu Merchantman for deep support given its supposed blockade-running focus. 60Tons of fuel and missiles, coming right up.
Well, that would be great - if the MM comes up with a little docking bay. Otherwise I doubt that it'll be possible to rearm most smaller vessels in space. Hornets and Gladiators are even worse - as carrier based ships, they all lack a docking collar.
We've got an Idris, run the supplies to that and rearm from there.
