The reapers have returned from dark space. With Earth under attack and the mass relays in a state of chaos from refugees and the councils fleet engaging reaper forces the galaxy is a mess. The outcome is unknown, the warfare is devastating. The galaxy will never be the same.

Im guessing the mass production frigate wont have the Thanix cannon? I apologize if this has been asked before.

the Normandy, even with Joker, is not a armada destroying, reaper smashing Hulk.

It would struggle to take on a Cerberus Cruiser.

Because he dont wanted to. Cruiser is no match against one frigate, especially when the frigate is armed with Thanix which can take out Collector cruiser in two salvos, when the Collector cruiser was of the size similar to dreadnought. And as Joker is the best human pilot, and Normandy SR-2 is the fastest ship, the Cerberus cruiser has no chance, frigate can easily outmaneuver him.

You seem to have missed the point. Joker avoided the confrontation because of the fighter compliment almost all cerberus cruisers have. I do not doubt that the Thanix would devestate it in under 2 shots. Fighters are a different matter entirely.

The Cerberus fighters are agile and difficult to destroy and pack a big punch. The cruiser might be easy to kill, but in a direct engagement against the full compliment of escort fighters? no chance

Yes, and their pilots are faster than EDI? :) EDI is the one who controls GARDIAN lasers, so unless Cerberus started recruiting Geth as pilots, no matter how fast their fighters may be, they are too slow for EDI's calculations and aim.

Yes, a group of fighters can easily take down the best and fastest frigate in the galaxy, with the best possible operators. Yeah, and after they finish off Normandy, they will go on Ascension, or Harbinger? :) You are making the fighters like they are the strongest, dont counting all things Normandy is equipped with. And capable off.

One ship can't take on a swarm of fighters on a 3-D plane of combat, Espescially not a frigate, regardless of crew or equipment. It could take down bigger, slower ships with relative ease (until we get into heavy cruisers). but a large group of fighter-bombers will overwhelm it.

It is an effective counter to small groups, is effective at picking of stragglers and can be used to intercept rouge missiles (unless they also come in a swarm)

Minimal GARDIN systems, coupled with the fact that it would have to divert attention between the cruiser and the fighters. can't do both without risking system overload, which is bad. very, very bad

Normandy has Silaris armor and Cyclonic barriers, they can absorb enough fire from fighters to destroy cruiser with one strike from Thanix,a nd GARDIAN than can easily take them off.

Hell man, you are really making like the fighters are armed with cruiser-grade MACs. Even with the torpedoes they can fire only few, and from close range, and Joker with EDI's assistance can easily evade them or shot them down.

The GARDIAN laser is nice and dose its job well, but remember its a close rang weapon.
Also Normandy is one ship. It is also only a frigate so it probably dose not have a large GARDIAN system.
It is likely that the GARDIAN lasers are most effective with a group of ships. Sort of like a boomer formation of WWII. Five or six frigates working together could probably handle most fighter attacks.

Ummm

Curiosity here, will the Normandy be counted as the alliance flagship for flagship victory matches?

And will it have any special abilities? (the alliance one) I could see a moral boost as very fitting...

Maybe also making geth fight better due to legion, in the off chance they some how end up on the same side

to settle the argument of Normandy versus cerberus stuff. the normandy, even with Guardian lasers isn't good against fighters and bombers without fighter cover. even then, she'd still need a fleet to back her up to fight against another fleet, cerberus included. Guardian lasers are good weapons but one ship is one ship. and there is someone out there who'll say "the normandy has two shuttles with cannons" to battle that, key word is two. and besides, shuttles aren't exactly meant for dogfights, they're small dropships. Point is, no matter the skills or weapons, a single ship without proper support will go down and FAST! take this from one who grew up in a military background and spent my entire childhood playing RTS games. I've done my homework. thank you for your time :)

I agree. While it is possible for the Normandy to take out a cruiser and it's fighter compliment, it would require careful timing...Normandy would have to lure the fighters away and pick them off one by one. The primary reason that the collector cruiser and the Oculuses (or is it Oculi?) lost against the Normandy was because most of them got caught in the debris field and then Normandy could take out the Cruiser with two salvos. And I don't remember seeing any General-ARea-DEfense-ANti-ship batteries firing on the Oculi at the Collector Base or the Cerberus Fighters at Grissom Academy.

If I were the strategist, I would make an attack run on the Cerberus Cruiser--almost ignoring the fighters--at high speeds firing the Thanix Cannons and disruptor torpedoes in one salvo, targeting the main power-plant, then jump a short distance away at FTL. In all likelihood this would take down the shields and cause reactor meltdown, or, worst case scenario, leave the ship badly damaged. If the cruiser was still kicking, turn around and make a second attack run which would guarantee a kill. Once the cruiser is destroyed, I would jump out leaving the combat zone. As I understand it, most fighters aren't FTL capable and rely on a larger ship for transportation between systems. This almost assures that all hostile forces are killed. Even if the figter's do somehow find bastion, the real prize, the cruiser is history.

By the way, Lord_Set and team, you are all doing an awesome job. Keep it up!

Description

Most of you were asking, Hey where the F&^% did the SR2 go out of last weeks update. To put it simply, I didn't like the model, I made it when the project began and it had a lot of extra polies and well it need to be redone so here it is. This is one of the frigates for Cerberus (With Research) and also the starter ship for the council. (With alliance colors)
