This will most likely replace the Firehawk as a buildable unit, not however as aircraft called in from off-map. Armed with twin machineguns and lots of missiles. It can be upgraded with repeating railguns to replace the gatlings.

In before: I had the idea to use it first, not TE. Moddb.com

love it...i am trying to figure why that thing reminds me of star wars...cant figure out why though..but i love that orca intercepter..makes a good replacement for firehawk..well minus the fact that it loses it anti-ground..or does it?

The Orca bomber and Orca fighter already took over the Firehawk's anti-ground ability and made it redundant.

It reminds me on the Jedi interceptor from Episode 3.

As a fighter specifically it looks fine but was it necessary to try to say you were using this before TE when it was an original CNC 3 concept that was unused and that TE is using it as a repair platform vs using it as a fighter specifically?

Im not trying to defend anyone here but what are you planning to use it for in role?

Yes, it was, because I was anticipating sam_23694 going "I knew your were competing with TE" again, because they had this design in their latest update too.

Lolz, 2 units, same lock but different abbilities. I dont care who got the idea first of if you both independently came to the idea for this model, you both are good modders. I just hope that this won't result gigantic Shitstorm :O

How comes your and TE's models come out at about the same time? Do you guys work together?

Reply Good karma Bad karma+2 votes

Sarge_Rho

No. My model came out long before TE's, I've just been undecisive wether or not to use it. Ultimately I decided an Orca to be more fitting for GDI than a Firehawk. That was 4 days ago.

imo the Firehawk and Orca bomber hold very different roles, the Firehawk is a fast strike precision fighter-bomber, the orca bomber is a big lumbering area bomber, not really caring where the bombs hit just dropping a ton and hoping it hits something, thats just my experience, the difference between the two is like the difference between an F-15 that can be used for anti-ground purposes (woulda compared to A-10 but A-10 is just to awesome to be compared to Firehawk), while the Orca Bomber is a B-52 minus the awesome payload and defensive capabilities of the B-52.

You sir, are an idiot, and I'm not even trying to insult you, but it's the truth. Because I had it first: Moddb.com (Date May 20th, 2010)

Either he copied it from me, or we both copied it from here, I certainly did: Farm5.staticflickr.com

just to get this mistake out.
TE did not copied the model from here but just like Helge from somewhere else, when we showed him that it was used here, he was also kinda surprised about it. :)

anyway, here it's a assault fighter. in TE is a support platform.
same model, other tactics.
:)

Carnius wrote: Well, i didnt know about that so what can i say ... coincidence :)

anyway we both using same cnc3 concept art, who did that firs doesn´t matter, really. I made support aircraft from it, sort of awacs with repair ability, because i think this concept fits better for support than combat aircraft, its just my personal feeling when i look at it and it has nothing to do with TA version. I dont understand why he mentioned TE at all when its based on CnC3 art.
That is my point.

Dude, do you ever, like EVER think before you post. I'm just curious. Did you duffer a lobotomy, did your mama' droped you on your head many times when you were young or wtf is wrong with you. You are seriously giving a new meaning to stupidity.
Is it so fuken hard to actualy search **** before posting crap. Stop fuken posting for the sake of troling. You wont recive any bonus content from bashing one mod and *** licking so deep into TE dev's *** your mouth is full of ****.

TA and TE.. on the outside, almost the exact same idea. But on the inside there is a differences. Something certain TE fans didn't knew because they're always judge a book by its cover.

The position of the chainguns makes it looks like it would have to fly directly at a ground target, unless they're intended for air-to-air combat.

It can attack only air targets.

Makes sense then. Will it need to re-arm its missile at an airfield or do it in flight?

It has to rearm the missiles, I said so earlier I think.
