    Almost. They should have a part of VR (or a separate VR) without invulnerability. Otherwise some troll is just going to TK anyone who just wants to try out a new weapon before purchase. But yeah, dogfighting in VR sounds great. Maybe an impromptu competition?

    So ... new aircraft coming in. The Valkyrie.

    I quite like this idea - but then I have visions of a full squad of Giraffes with three Valkyries zipping from hot spot to hot spot, prepping the ground, with the rest of the Platoon arriving via Galaxy.

    Er Ma Gerd. The Valkyrie sounds amazing. Playing a lot with Libs and Gals as close air support recently has me in exactly the right headspace for something like the Valkyrie. Having a couple of them zipping around, supporting troops on the ground and picking up people to drop on Sundys and snipers.

    A lot of it depends on what the nose guns are like, at the moment it kind of sounds like a sky-harasser/mini liberator. Wonder how it would perform with two Burster MAXes in the back? Or even just two AA lock-on heavies (though they would be a lot more vulnerable to damage). SO MANY POSSIBILITIES!

    As it's likely to have ESF levels of durability I think I'd be okay with MAXs being allowed in the rumble seats - was thinking it'd be OP as hell but they'll likely have more health than the aircraft itself so it's all good.

    This is great! It sounds like an airborne harasser and hopefully will be just as much fun. Also Higby made me feel bad that I cancelled my subscription

    Man, i'm worried about the april update now. "Major balancing of MBTs and secondary weapons" doesn't sound good ... at all.

    Judging from the central bar in the back it looks like the rumble seats will be facing opposite sides. In that situation it might make more sense to only fit one anti-air Heavy/MAX and practice keeping that side towards enemy air. That leaves a seat free for other roles like repair monkey if that works.

    The Valkyrie resembles a helicopter gunship somewhat so I wouldn't be surprised if it had something similar to the liberator's pilot gun for the dedicated gunner with potential for rockets/missiles as secondary weapons.

    Given that our general play style could best be described as "Air Cav", since we mostly (not exclusively) go for Gal drops onto targets followed by a hold and sometimes a rescue of the initial drop by Armour/Infantry or further drops, this would seem to be right up our street as an outfit!

    I am so ready to be a close support pilot in a Valkyrie. SO ready.

    Will it come with a Wraith cloaking module for infiltrator pilots?

    GAH!!!! They've killed quartz ridge. Now it's another bullshit "you gotta walk 200m+ from spawn to get to a point" bases with what looks to be fucking atrocious flow.

    You don't see a problem with Burster mounted maxes in the air?


    On same topic. I myself would be using Valkyrie as a libhunter with heavies with dumbfires while using max stealth on Valk itself.
    Hear from the spirit-world this mystery:
    Creation is summed up, O man, in thee;
    Angel and demon, man and beast art thou,
    Yea, thou art all thou dost appear to be!

    Vakrys + Burster Max are proably worse then 2 burster maxes on the ground.
    Sure, you theres a higher chanche of killing ESF since they can't really hide behind the terrain but they are also a lot more vulnerable.
    Now instead of being able to pull back into a building your stuck in the sky, where Lock-ons and flak can hit you will reduce your survivablility a lot.
    Looking at the screenshots I get the feeling that the the firing angle of the rumbles seats is quite limited, youll proably only be able to get 1 burster on target at once and have lots of blindspots, too.
