here we go again..
"My ship is bettter"
"Your ship sucks compared to mine"
It has been proven in History, and in my online gaming experinace. it is not the ship that wins or is better then other ship. it is the pilot
now, we can argue taht a certain craft has better Advatages over other craft. But we cannot go out and say one is better.
A pilot in a Tug with a spinal mounted blaster cannon could take out a TIE-Defender if the TIE-D pilot was an totally drunk Ewok taht was "pushing all the buttons" including the ejection seat release. (if a shot makes contact, and the pilot ejects, under military law taht counts as a kill)
