Which is your preferred T10 Heavy Fighter? If you have reasoning, please feel free to share below. I'm genuinely curious.

As a German heavy fighter fan, the HGIII was the natural choice.  It turns well, compared to the other heavies, and it has a really high alpha.  when I get it specialized, it'll be better, but right now, it does the job pretty well.

I haven't got any of them yet.

 

Have been seeing quite a few good players doing very well with the XF-90 lately, thing is seriously quick & they use impressive zooms to high-altitude to escape when I think I got them nailed.

But man its ugleh.

 

I've probably fought HGIIIs quite a bit but in the height of battle I find them hard to distinguish from HGII.

 

Aesthetically I love the Javelin & I love the idea of having 4* Adens to play with :playing: though that firepower is now available on the less flying-brick-like Hunter which I also love aesthetically so I may get to that first.

C'est magnifique, mais ce n'est pas le SerB.

The ME 262 series I can not hit the broad side of a barn.

The Javelin I am still learning to counter effectively and I really want one

 seems to out fly anything.

The XF-90 ? Well, it's the one I fly because it was the first TEN I got.

i am doing mediocre in it since I came back. I think I am doing better in it now

than I was before the Planet of the Apes,

LOL, that's fair.

So far I have the HGIII and the XF-90 and am 100% unimpressed with the HGIII comparative to the XF-90. Looks better on paper (to me), but doesn't mesh with how I play. I am -slowly- working toward the Javelin because I too want those 4x Adens.. my Swift is fun with only two... faster with 2 more sounds like a straight line fighter that deletes things foolish enough to get in front of it.

I will agree with anyone who says the XF-90 is ugly as sin though. It is so ugly that the first time I flew it I asked myself "Did a child design this?" Maybe some different paint would make it better? Something to break up its ugly lines....

The Javelin, to me, is the best in the looks department of the three but we'll see how I actually like it when/if I ever make it to it.
