    How long before Idris is released to owners?

    It's a marketing thing. It won't be before Squadron 42. Marketing doesn't want the actual experience, especially with a P to not live up to the hype and curtail sales.

    400i v Zeus Mk II ES

    The question isn't why it's chonky but how chonky it is. :)

    400i v Zeus Mk II ES

    I agree, but the Q&A says it is supposed to fit the XS (Carrier Fighter) pads.

    400i v Zeus Mk II ES

    It appears I missed a source. Everything on the Legionaire, except the Q&A, says it needs a Size S pad. The Q&A says XS. If the Q&A is correct and it doesn't grow during the Ship Pipeline, then it will fit in the Idris or Polaris. If it grows even a half meter in length or width, it doesn't...

    400i v Zeus Mk II ES

    The Legionaire is taller, and at least as wide as both the Hoplite and the Steel. It is a couple meters shorter (nose to tail) but not significantly shorter. If you can fit one on a pad, the others fit.

    400i v Zeus Mk II ES

    The biggest downside to the Legionaire is the size. It is every bit as large as a Cutlass Steel or Vanguard Hoplite. Since it is, for the most part, a one trick pony, that isn't something to endear it to me. Now if it was capable of fitting on an XS pad then it would be different. How do you...

    400i v Zeus Mk II ES

    They haven't even begun to really the balance around fuel consumption. How much tank vs. how much does each size drive use. They haven't even really started balancing the tank size within one size of ship.

    "Stealth is back"

    Oh, by all means, chase the meta. But do it with aUEC, not real cash.

    "Stealth is back"

    https://robertsspaceindustries.com/comm-link/engineering/15014-Q-A-Aegis-Sabre There are other places where ships are ordered by stealth, and the Ghost always ends up last. :)

    "Stealth is back"

    Well the Hornet Ghost is stealthier than my Sabre and my Eclipse, so that's not right,.

    F8c Gold Tickets back in the 'Verse again

    After flying the rental around a bit, I'm not overly impressed. For a carrier bird, I prefer my Hawk, my Sabre and even the loaner Super Hornet in my hangar.

    F8c Gold Tickets back in the 'Verse again

    Kinda silly that you can't CCU to it either. Nobody has said it is a limited hull vessel.

    Let's Talk Suit Thrusters

    I have a nice size Ork army too, though point wise it's probably 25% of the size of my Marine army. :) Assault Marines and Storm Boyz use the ability to close the distance and get into hand to hand range. The Mobile Infantry use the ability to limit exposure to return fire while advancing on...

    Let's Talk Suit Thrusters

    Yes I have all three of the Dawn of War 2 and lots of the DLC. :) I also have way too much money in 40K miniatures, to include a reinforced company of Dark Angles.

    Let's Talk Suit Thrusters

    Average Infantryman, with light gear, you're looking at around 100 KG or more, at least in the US. The biggest issue you run into is reaction mass. The second is power. From a real world perspective it isn't really a practical consideration with anything we know about. Now in Star Citizen...

    Let's Talk Suit Thrusters

    Being able to use a suit as a braking mechanism would depend on the design of your suit thrusters. In space thrusters don't need much to push a person around. For what you're looking for, it sounds like Heinlein's Starship Troopers Marauder power armor. The standard issue for all members of...

    IIRC that was based on this.
