Tactical Fleet Simulator (TFS) is a total overhaul that completely redefines the Homeworld experience. TFS aims to transform Homeworld2 into a tactics-oriented combat simulator by enhancing the tactical aspect of the game through the inclusion of new content and revamping the entire pace of combat to simulate a more immersing and adrenaline-soaked experience. Recurring themes are quasi-modern (circa 20th century) air and naval doctrines modified for three-dimensional movement complete with a proper unit classification system. Grand strategy plays a significant role, but the emphasis is placed on battlefield adaptability simulated by a large amount of available assets - some of which have similar roles but are only applicable under specific circumstances. Combined arms is the name of the game - there are no individual "uber" units. Even the strongest ships will be taken down in short order if not managed correctly and utilized in conjunction with other assets.

Wow, Vagyr Battlecruiser attacks carrier from above!!! Does this mean you finally fixed the strange habit of capital ships to rotate up/down and start changing elevation when ordered to attack?

It was quite idiotic for a way to ensure that frigates always beat battlecruiser in close combat i think. Or did you had something else in mind?

The Vaygr Battlecruiser and Battleship can attack targets directly below it with its Trinity pulse cannon. I don't remember if they could do this or not in the original game, but I am pretty sure they behaved the same as they do in TFS, the only difference being capital ships in TFS are able to bank at 90 degree angles.

Do keep in mind this video is about five years old now and there have been considerable changes in the mod since then.
