Plus, the ship itself has four powerful thrusters that can push the ship along at something damn close to hyper-speed. Without the sail, the ship can still make it from Geonosis to Coruscant and back with little trouble.

I just read pretty much everything on Count Dooku... he rules.
it might be able to deflect standard lasers from starfighters but i doubt they'd be able to deflect turbolaser shots from something say like a Mon Calamari Star Cruiser?

X-Wing best all around? No! The B-Wing has Ion cannons, more warheads and more shields!

My vote goes to the Missile Boat! People don't know a lot about it and it isn't a Tie so nobody voted for it. But You should vote for it! it's the best of the best! So many warheads! You could blow up a Star Destroyer and it's starfighter support with all those warheads!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

All Glory to the Missile Boat!

I have read about them in EU books. Don't really remember them though. Long time since the last EU book that I have read.

Sure you like the YT-1300. Thats mostly cause of the Falcon which is highly modified. But the YT-2000 is much better unmodified than the unmodified YT-1300
Who said I wouldn't modify it? The Outrider is also a Heavily Modified YT-1300. I would make it a more aggresive ship that a smuggling ship. Think of all the space that you can for something other than smuggling. He he he he he he

Actually the Outrider is a modified YT-2400. My fav Corellian ship is the YT-2000.


May the Force be with you...

My bad I guess. I read somewhere that it was a YT-1300. I still would stick with the YT-1300 though.

E-wing is a fighter designed in part by some of the people who made the x-wing; it has 3 laser cannons, room for several warheads, and is as fast and nimble as a TIE Interceptor.

the missle boat is okay in theory, but in use (x-wing alliance) it's not too great. Yeah, it has lots of missles, but in a BIG dogfight it would be doomed becuz once its out of missles, it has only ONE laser cannon, yes ONE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I like the Jedi Starfighter best, then X-Wing, then YT-1300

Oh you are so wrong about the missile boat! you can carry over 80 missiles! I never finish them all. The laser canon is very well placed and is very accurate(a lot better then the b-wing).

I guess none of you guys ever played the classic Tie Fighter Flight sim? well in Tie fighter, they say the missile boat was made to counter the Tie Defender so Missile Boat>Tie Defender

In the X-wing Versus Tie Fighter games, my personal favorite was the TIE Advanced. It's sleek, powerfull, and had some damn good maneuverability. It's awesome! But my fovorite Alliance fighter has to be the B-Wing, it's one powerfull mother....



Look! A Fuzzy wuzzy bunny!
WHERE!?! (gunshots)

It was also in Alliance. You could fly it in MP. It kicked ass just as much as it did in TIE Fighter. Gotta love them SLAM jets. One friend and I took out several huge convoys without breaking a sweat. And we were also being attacked by fighters. Our manuverability made quik work of them. But of course I enjoy all the other fighters listed. Except maybe the Y-Wing...flying brick. Of course this is all MHO. Its been a long time since Ive played a simulator game though. I wish theyd make another X-Wing game: X-Wing New Republic.


May the Force be with you...

I chose the A-wing, only because I own Rogue Leader for the GC and the A-wing is so manouverable and speedy that you can just over take any tie intercepter in you way.
