      Red face the Aegir vs the Skirnir

      helly everyone =]

      so i got one of each (for now)

      and im tryin to figure out which one i want to get in bulk

      this is the Aegir

      this is the Skirnir

      which one would be better to get(and for the skirnir..it is listed as 2 seperate 8 turrets..but theyre both front..so its actually 16 front turrets =p)
      hmm..just noticed somethin wrong with the aegir page...its stated that it cant mount PSPs...when in fact it can mount them in the right and left (turrets 3 and 1)

      and no neither are my personal ship im gonna use them to guard my trade lanes (patrol is bugged for anything above fighters it seems...so i need quite a few for the 6 sectors i need defended =p)

      thanks =] <3

      iirc the skirnir is the ATFs equivilent to an M7M but its hard to find any missiles for it and there is no way to produce them yourself.......yet

      the aegir unlike other M7s its lacks any decent anti-capital weaponry but is faster+more manoverable then other M7s limited selection of guns and missiles
      but has the best anti fighter weapons on all turrets
      over all i would say aegir less of a brick and more of xl fighter

      HTH

      hmm... it really depends on what you want to do with them... both are a bit specialist...

      the Skirnir is only ok if you have a missile supply for it, if not, forget it!

      the Aegir is good against fighters, but poor against other M7s, and hopeless against M2s (forget the XTM Aegir, this is not in the same class)...

      both are ok for supporting roles (if you can get the Skirnir's missiles), but not something to fly as a personal ship, and certainly not to fly against other M7s or M1/M2s (again, unless you can get the Skirnir's missiles).

      Dragon is correct about the 2 ships. The Skirnir lacks missiles, in fact, with the given amount of missile fabs it can't be operated at all. The second ATF ship, the Aegir is a cruel joke compared to its origin, the terran Aegir from XTM. It's great strength came from 2 mountable B-EMPs to the bridge weapons.
      The current ATF version can mount 8 M/AM launcher to the front. Ask yourself... do you want to fly a capital seized ship with the EXACT firepower of a Springblossom? There are no goodies, there are no secrets, there is no advantage in flying an Aegir.

      So, i strongly suggest selling both ships. The first one has no ammunition (and that won't change after the patch afaik) and the second is a slow version of a springblossom with some more laserenergy (which is useless for M/AM launchers ) Even if you cap the Valhalla, it can only shoot with PSP, SSC or M/AM launchers. ATF ships aren't worth a single marine, even the Tyr is just a piece for your showcase
