/m/, how would Veritechs fare against fighters in Star Wars? Why (except obvious copyright issues) the SW engineers didn't come up with that concept earlier?
Poorly. Far behind in technology. No defenses against blaster fire. Bullets wouldn't leave a dent in Star Wars fighters.
Transformation produces issues that make it a liability rather than an asset. It'd make more sense to just develop a gunship.
While Star Wars ships are the size of a Macross. They are at a serious firepower disadvantage.
They would have to bring around one of those ridiculous space station super weapons to match firepower with a Macross. At which point a VF flies inside it and blows everything up.
>Poorly. Far behind in technology
yeah fighters that are slower than even rl modern jets are totally going to be able to shoot down something that moves over 3 times faster than them
>They would have to bring around one of those ridiculous space station super weapons to match firepower with a Macross.
You say this like SW hasn't had cases where fighter pilots brought down huge superweapons before.
And let's not forget, if we go by the SDF rules, that pinpoint barrier will only be able to tank just so many shots.
