Pretty fucking useful for Air Squads, a mobile repair/supply.

Galaxies will be a LOT harder to take out from the ground now, so BAWC is going to have to call for dedicated air support to sweep the skies more. You could have two of these holding in close proximity beside a base and act as a repair/reload station in the air, no more need to go back to the nearest air-friendly base to reload and repair by hand.

Given our increasing effectiveness in Hellfire assaults, whoever is running the ammo-Galaxy will become filthy rich soon enough.

3 Galaxies in a semi-tight formation can have infinite ammo and infinite repairs, they will only have to pull out when the AA get intense enough - until then they can bombard freely and Libs can escort them. We are gonna see A LOT of more bomber formations.

This will be great, it will spice up the air-game. I just wish they could boost the Skyguard to compensate, it's already very weak against anything but ESF's in small numbers, with remote repair it will become obsolete - you will run out of ammo before you kill any Galaxy or escorted Liberator.

Having said that, I look forward to BAWC using a 1-Gal 2-Lib attack formation, drooping ground-forces on point while covering them from the air with mortar fire and Zephyrs. Oh yeah, that will be nasty.

Meh. You'd have to run a very tight formation to make any galaxy roaming effective and even then I doubt you could outrepair anything other than esf nose guns or random lockon fire so tanks, esfs with hornets or lolpods and libs are still a worry.

I don't really see them being useful as a mobile repair station or ammo dispenser for air vehicles. It is usually just as fast if not faster to land and repair yourself than use proxy repair, especially for libs. Ammo dispenser is very situational as well since very often you have some kind of landing pad in the near hexes so it's fine.

And as far as giving supporting fire to capping ground troops I don't see it changing anything at all. Bursters will still tick you down so you have to move whether you are trying to bulldog from a gal or zepher with lib. Bulldogs are not that good against single infantry targets so it's usually more useful to be on ground killing off the enemies if you're any good and in large clusterfucks bulldogs would be good but again burster and lockon spam are an issue.

I maxed out both addons, repair and ammo, and i need to say that it is nice to use, especaly the repair addon can be usefull to quikly repair a frendly tank zerg, or a burning sundy.

The repair addon for the galaxy is stronger then the repair addon for the sundy,so i prefer to use a galaxy to repair a tank zerg. Because, in the worst case you can just fly away.

I didnt tested the ammo addon yet, but ill do test it soon....

Btw. be carfull when flying now. When youbare burning your turbins have no thrust anymore, what means your dropping like a stone when you are burning.

Interesting. Spending easily 50% of my online time in a Skyguard. More targets are welcome, but will be curious to see if I can outdamage the repair mechanism or not...

Why would you waste so much time in a skyguard? Surely you will be much more effective if you spent that time training your ESF skills or just using solo-Walker harasser or sth that you can actually survive against tanks with.

Don't know. Just happen to like it -- I used to play late at night and get a kick out of 1vs1 duels vs Battle Gals, Libs, or the occasional other lightning, or luring sundies into minefields. Also surprisingly effective at getting rid of pesky harassers. Auraxiumed it ages ago and still learning new tricks.

Do you get better or worse fps? They changed the load in this patch, so your gpu need to work more to run ps2.

Mine are fine, from what I can tell, slightly better performance, it seems.

Also, the patch today got us the old UI font back, so no more MASSIE FUCKING LETTERS AND NAMES EVERYWHERE.

Praise [insert diety].

If think my fps is lower now because I have a good CPU but my GPU is sort of outdated. the extra load on my GPU causes my fps to drop.

You're not thinking about it right, Repair Gal is a perfect replacement for the repair Sundy in a Stampede. And it can provide a lot more firepower.

Problem is the fact that you have to fly really low to replace a repair sundy, and you can take every tank-shell there is, while the repair sundies in a stampede are both smaller targets, harder to pick out of the stampede itself, and under optimal conditions in the rear of the formation, literally shielded by the blockade sundies in front and the more expendable ammo sundies. It could work to replace at least one repair sundie with a Gal - especially as you don't change the number of gunners needed - but I think it might be better as an addition - run 3-4 Blockade sundies, one ammo and 2-3 repair, then a repair gal over them again. Also, you will have to move the gal out of the way when the sundy formation want to shoot enemy air coming in.

Personally I think a pair of repair gals will be a better addition to Lib squads, just have one repair gal flying slowly and 1-2 lb pilots trying to stay cool under pressure and inside repair range of the gal, while the gunners have free reign to shoot - from both the libs and the gal at once. With that you can have armored Libs flying with the repair Gal and you won't need the usual passive repair.

I don't know how well any of these tactics work in practical terms, but one thing is for sure, we can test a lot of these and just having flying ammo and repair stations will seriously change how many tactics we can pull off. Good times ahead IMHO.
