Condor Class Troop Transports

Postby LordRaptor » Thu Jan 11, 2007 12:06 am

In the Eath Alliance Fact Book Condors have 24 Hades class assault shuttles but in The Ships of the Galaxy they only have 2 Hades class. It seems to go from one extreme to another, so which one is more accurate? Thanks :)

Seeing that the Condor was originally supposed to be the troop transports that docked with B5 in "GROPOS", and seeing that they were a good deal smaller then their escorting Nova, I'd say the smaller one is more accurate (after all, what does it need shuttles for - the ship looked quite atmospheric to me, and those big nose hatched just scream "lands to unload troops" to me...

I'll have to look again (not got the book to hand), but the EA fact book has that either as a typo on the number of shuttles, or some overzealous editorial type changed Bruce's description of a Tantalus Assault Ship (from B5 Wars...) to a name they recognised from the show, which given the Tantalus is bigger than an Omega...
