My heart says YES, my wallet ran away screaming something that sounded suspiciously like "Wrong answer!". BUT I have something I can upgrade and take half the pain off of my wallet. when it gets back I'll have a heart to heart with it.

Edit: Good video too .... forgot that part

BRRRRRRRRT! I am so hyped for the Inferno. It may or may not be shit, but as long as that gun has a beefy sound for the pilot and anyone you are shooting at in atmosphere, im sold.
I can see us just flying around in our Inferno shooting at nothing just to enjoy the sound.

Sort of like driving super cars through tunnels.

I have been flying around an Aurora with gatlings just for the BRRRRT!
It may be my imagination, but the BRRRT! sounds better in an aurora to me than in a Freelancer MIS- maybe because two of the guns are right below the cockpit.

It's pretty, it's sexy, and I damn well know that the sound that tri barrel will make is going to addictive. But, this ship just isn't for me. I'm already sitting on a Super Hornet, Saber, and Warden. Ideally I wanted the Ares to be a competitor to the Vanguard. I.E. A long range heavy fighter with living accommodations, a turret, weapon/armor racks, player storage (not scu storage), and a place to put mission items and droppables. Something that could lead a fleet, or escort a long range exploration mission, not be a ship that has to rely on a capital ship to survive anything more than a quick engagement. The fact that the Ares is just a flying gun is cool but not what I was hoping for.

Thank you, Glorious Leader!

Superhawt video full of info-nuggets.

Still, I've got my Vanguard Sentinel and one thing it has is raaaange. You're going places in the Vanguard, the Crusader Arse may excel at covering a base or a carrier... Anti-bomber fighter perhaps, seems like the Eclypse or Retaliator would be this things bread and butter? Long range single weapon suggests it'll be a stand-off sniper of a fighter.

Now I saw this on that YouTube just now:

It shows the Arse weapon is specially designed to "Incapacitate" a capital ship. I feel this gives away a hint that it won't be able to destroy an Idris or any other Capital, but damage and incapacitate which is arguably just as bad as you'll have to fix the damaged ship rather than claim on the LTI. Smaller ships like the Connie, Cat, Starfarer may have a harder time of it though.

You hit the nail on the head. This is not a fighter. It's a gatling gun with wings and a cockpit screwed on. I can't think of a direct Air Force equivalent, but I can think of Naval river boats that fit this role. You can fly this ship alone if you want, but it'll work much better in a pack.
