AboutEdit

Terran fighters in the T-V war era were under powered in terms of engine output, but made up for it with superior armour and firepower.

Great War designs were faster and more adaptable without losing much in firepower.FS2 era ships blended high performance and strong defensive and attack capability, with most craft able to perform a variety of roles.
