Everybody is freaking out about how big some of the Vandy ships are.Am I the only one who doesn't care, and has confidence in the Retaliator and Gladiator drivers to toast some big slabs of bacon?
Personally, I'd bet Gladiators will be better for something like this than Retaliators. More torpedoes *per person,* most likely. And fewer systems dedicated to stuff other than strike. But somehow, Retaliators outsold Gladiators by a lot despite being a hundred dollars more. :-P Not trying to put down the Retaliator, it looks like it's going to be awesome!
You raise an excellent point about the rearm loop. I'm thinking that, doctrinally, we may use Gladiators against their pickets and smaller cap-ships, since they can re-arm a lot quicker, and thus burn through more of them. The Retaliators, in the meantime, are survivable enough to bore through the Vanduul fleet (perhaps through gaps created by Gladiator sorties), and can take out larger cap-ships.
This, though, depends heavily on being able to use Idrii to rearm our birds. We only have 49 of them, last time I checked, so that's a pretty small amount of ships we can resupply at any one time.
This could make the work of 'uncool' jobs like for the crew on hangar decks far more attractive.The fleet relies on you, how fast can you reload them with ammo, how fast can you refuel them? Are you the fastest pit-stop crew on the fleet? There're many fighter pilots and bomber crews on the fleet, but only a couple of you. Just saying - this is personal, they'll remember your name.
Interesting, a dedicated comms ship
