Is the Conny a supposed gunship?? Anyway I think this is way better: bigger turret and more of them. Even if it giive in the missile rack and the trasport capability, this is way better to fload an area with suppressing fire: if you have ever try to engage a graund target with a fully crewed Valkyrie you know what I mean, and this looks more brrrrt-capable due to the bigger brrrrrrt.Thank you, Glorious Leader!
How does this compare to the other gunship, the Andromeda?
The Connie is also much more of a missile boat, having many times the missiles of the redeemer.The andromeda have a lot of versatile & forward firepower with those size 4 dudes at a distance. And it can't even get 4 size 5s right now, being limited to only two in the top.
But if you get in close range it becomes an commercial for the importance of snow tires - too drifty. Besides that, these delicious guns are all on the very vulnerable engines of the Constellation . . . your enemy will have a great time destroying to major components with a single shot (or sequence of shots). Conclusion: Constellations are not that great - but are kind of good.
The Redeemer may not have a overwhelmingly greater than a Connie DPS, but it has the right things in correct positions:
- turrets with size 4s top and bottom (althout the bottom position kinda suck).
- pilot has a freelancer like firepower (gimballed and powerfull), BUT, they are not so exposed on the checks of the ship like the lancer is.
Seriously, I would compare it to the Caterpillar combat wise. Same turrets, great placements, similar pilot guns. But where the Caterpillar is seen as the least dangerous of the large ones, the compact size of the Redeemer makes it a top in mediums imo.
The non turret guns are also pretty hidden, you are not going to lose them first in a battle.
