I'd say X-Wing and Tie Fighter.

I don't really like the others, especially the Y-Wing. I never liked Y-Wings in fact... too slow for me.

04-13-2004, 01:01 PM
Snow Speeder (I think we all know tfigherpilot's gonna vote for this one.) :D :o ;)

GlobalStrike
04-13-2004, 01:14 PM
I would definitly have to go with Republic Gunship, that baby is loaded down with weapons, like missles, laser beams and rockets. Second, i'd most likley go for the SnowSpeeder. :jawa :jawa

It is, but that doesn't matter, it's fun anyway!

I Like the Repuvlic gunship. The idea of having six people in one ship (I'd like to fly)...

Definitly the Republic Gunship. I mean you got your missles, your troop transport, and still have the laser things. The best. Kinda like the bomber and havoc combined from Tribes 2! :p :p :p

Ever played Tie Fighter? All this gave me the idea of playing again. It's just the best simulator I've ever played (and it's full of propaganda for the Empire too :D )

Yup, the Tie Fighter will be one of the first I'll try :)

vader's advanced tie would be a sweet extra on a map... maybe tatooine or hoth. also a bespin map w/ the falcon and /or slave I would be nice!

My favorites would be Tie Fighter, Imperial Shuttle, X-wing, Y-wing and snowspeeder. My least favorite aircraft would be prequel trilogy aircraft like republic gunship and jedi starfighter.

joesdomain
04-14-2004, 11:46 PM
I would like to see a-wing, b-wing, tie interceptor, tie bomber, and tie advanced in the game also. I also think Droid Fighter, etc. Jedi Starfighter (episode II) and Jedi Starfighter (episode III) should both be in the game in my opinion.

GlobalStrike
04-15-2004, 03:33 AM
I'm guessing that the imperial shuttle will be like the gunship of it's day, a heavy assualt ship. Just a thought. :jawa :jawa

04-15-2004, 05:04 PM
the imperial shuttle was a cargo/transport ship but it did have really heavy shields and a decent armament, but it is damn slow. the imperial landing craft would be a better ship as it is even better shielded, more weapons and as fast as the b-wing. even though the b-wing is still slower than the y-wing.

Republic Gunship all the way! Lasers, missles, troop carrying. Ah, it's just so cool! I like the ball turrets. Composite laser beams rock!

Gunship and tie fighter

Genghis_Khan
04-16-2004, 10:50 AM
My choice would be the X-wing fighter.

I think it looks very cool.

Not sure weather it is a strong ship, cause I've never flown one, but never mind.

LukeKatarn
04-16-2004, 07:36 PM
For me it is a tie(not a tie fighter) betwean a Jedi Starfighter and a Clone gunship.

Ultar Terragorn
04-16-2004, 11:24 PM
A basic Tie fighter is just right for me. No extra shield, no hyperdrive, no big weapons but just pure skills :cool:

If you like suicide missions.

tFighterPilot
04-17-2004, 08:46 AM
Well the tie interceptor is better, since it's faster, more agile and shoots faster.

I Choose the Republic Gunship because its just such a cool ship... and plus it does sound preety cool.

Tie Fighter by far. How can you beat those things? Simple yet sophisticated. Oximoron.

Republic Gunship for pre series and Tie Fighter for the OT.But overall id say republic gunship.



:bdroid2:

04-26-2004, 08:16 PM
I would have to say the "X-wing" since its always have been one of my favorite airplanes in SW. Im not sure if I´m going to use it in BF, but still ...

GlobalStrike
04-28-2004, 04:18 PM
I think it would be cool if they added the A-wing, but then again that would be 4 aircraft for the rebels. Hmm, lets see, the rebels have the Y-wing, X-wing and the Snow speeder, the imperials have the Tie fighter and Imperial shuttle and the republic have the Republic gunship and the Jedi starfighter but the separtists have no aircraft so far. They should get either the Droid starfighter or the Geonosian starfighter. :jawa :jawa

Isair
04-28-2004, 05:16 PM
These arn't all the flying vehicles that will be in the game, but out of what we have been given so far, I'd have to say Republic Gunship.

GlobalStrike
04-28-2004, 06:52 PM
They said there are gonna be over 15 vehicles in the game, but that probably means only 16 or 17 in the game. There are already 14 or 15 vehicles known to be in the game. So, there can only be like 2 or 3 more in the game and the separtists need atleast one flying vehicle. :jawa :jawa

Darth_Ak4t7
04-28-2004, 07:52 PM
it would be the droid star fighter, if the geonosians are going to be the NPC army, droids won't be flying thier ships.

Darth_Ak4t7
04-28-2004, 07:53 PM
And plus if its a place like the battle of geonosis or naboo thier won't be any aircraft, if the battles are going to be authentic.

GlobalStrike

There was aircraft at the battle of Geonosis, just not droid aircraft. :jawa :jawa

I am a big fan of the empire so I hope Lucasarts puts the tie fighter, tie interceptor, tie advanced, tie bomber, Imperial Lamdba Class Shuttle in it. I doubt we will see Imperial Lander or Rebel Medium Transport since they have no weapons. I am also a big fan of the Rebel Alliance so I hope the X-wing, Y-wing, A-wing, B-wing, and Snowspeeder are in it.

No need to post twice.


A-Wing probably won't be in it. Come on, it was more of a space superiority fighter. It is way too fast for atmospheric battles and not that heavily armed to be of any use on the ground. Same goes for TIE Interceptor.

My favourite craft would be the X-Wing. Not that fast but fast enough to be agile and can still take a beating. With quad lasers and proton torpedoes it can easily take out ground and air targets without any difficulty.

Prime
05-06-2004, 04:06 PM
The X-Wing was, is, and always will be the best. :)

joesdomain
05-06-2004, 07:17 PM
The reason why the double post was swbattlefront.net server. I tried to post and froze so I tried to post it again. I know it wasn't my server because it is a university and all my other sites downloaded super fast. Back to the question, Tie Interceptor aren't that fast. They have the same speed as X-wings. Plus, many of the Star Wars Battlefront people working on the project in the interviews so far have mention that if you saw the starship or vehicle in the movie then it would most likely be in the game. I can't remember the exact quote or person who said it. If you go to the official website at Lucasarts.com there are lots of interviews.

Deeo
05-06-2004, 09:54 PM
No way Interceptor is as fast as an X-Wing. An A-Wing is about equal with an Interceptor. X-Wing is like a balanced vessel. Not too fast but not too slow. Packs a punch and can take a beating. Interceptor is much more faster. Proven in EU and games.

Im sure there will be patches w/ more vehicles, also, the Rebel trandports did have weaopns. They had 4 twin lasers, but these were taken off for fighters to use

joesdomain
05-06-2004, 11:29 PM
The only way to get a patch for X-box and Playstation 2 version with today's technology is for Lucasarts to offer it via online for the players who have online capabilities. If you don't have broadband connection for PS2 then you can't play at all. I wouldn't have any trouble getting memory cards to save games or internet adaptor to hook to the internet. But I have a 56K modem that is hooked to a phone jack that is at least 25 years old and at best would only connect at 20 or 21K. It is a good thing I am networked with a University network and get broadband connection while at school. I guess I am in trouble once college is over and go back home to my parents. For the record, I am just stating what I have read in interviews that game magazines have done with Star Wars Battlefront workers. It is highly possible that Tie Interceptors are in the game especially since they already mentioned the Lamda Shuttle for the Empire.

I can't wait to fly the Republican Gunship because I think it will be fun to be one of the gunners and not have to worry about flying and being able to justfocus on shooting

Eagle Warrior
05-10-2004, 08:55 AM
i totally agree. you won't have to worry about flying. all you would do it protect the ship. also for a snowspeeder it will be kool just to shoot the harpoon and not have to worry about flying the ship.

There should be both A-Wing and Tie Interceptor, as both were in the battle of endor. There were B-Wings there also, but they aren't as importent.

Eagle Warrior
05-10-2004, 09:08 AM
the b-wings would just bomb the enemy troops and take out buildings of the enemy. remember that there will be droids. i wonder what they will have to do to take out a :atat: (if there are going to be droids in this battle)

tFighterPilot
05-10-2004, 10:12 AM
Easy, it won't happen. Droids will never fight an AT AT

B-Wing isn't a bomber, it is a fighter.

Wai_TungLeung
05-10-2004, 11:45 AM
I'm not sure, but at the moment I would say the Y-wing since I have a thing for old vintage fighters. I would like to see a version of the Y-wing with space for two pilots one handling the flying and firing with the other taking care of the ion cannon. I think most versions of the Y-wing are bombers as well.

About the TIE interceptor, from an early interview a person said that the Interceptor may not make it to the released version of the game because it is very similar in function to the TIE fighter, therefore there has to be significant difference for it to be included. However it is with little doubt that the interceptor will be avaible through other means like patch/expansion/mod.

That's right, the A-wing is probably one of the fastest ships in the star wars universe, if not the fastest. I read it's even faster that the TIE intercepter . :jawa :jawa

Well I'm certainly going to be the pilot of the über REPUBLIC GUNSHIP. It is the best fantasy-vehicle ever created. But I just hope the pilot can shoot the rockets and not some gunner. The gunners should only have the green lasers.

About the 'missing' vehicles: I think the developers will save some for an expansion.

Well i like the Republic Gunship, all the missiles and stuff, but the jedi starfighter does have more manoverability so i'll go with that.

Like i said before, just a recount. One idea that maybe usful if you're playing as the Republic is to take a Republic Gunship with about 2-3 Jetpack troopers and sneak behind enemy lines and capture spawn points. :jawa :jawa

If you look at your keyboard you may notice T and Y are very close together. Draw your own conclusions.

And if you'd ever played the X-wing series you'd know what a T-wing was anyway.
