From Gineipaedia, the Legend of Galactic Heroes wiki
With this, we have a pretty good idea of who was Space Fleet Commander from 745 to 770: Ashbey (745), Jamuna (746-751), Warwick (751-753), Jasper (753-770)
It also pretty much tells us that space fighters have been around less than 50 years. There were no fighters, after all, by UC 745 at the 2nd Battle of Tiamat. Fighters couldn't feasibly have appeared much before UC 748, likely prototypes and limited production models, with UC 750 being when they started being used more massively following the introduction of carriers. Very interesting. I really like those historical bits.
The Data Book lists 12 missile launchers but the anime depicts 16 presumable launchers mounted on the ship in box launchers. We also don't seem to have a clear listing of what goes in the main cannon mounts in the front. Interestingly enough though, I don't think we ever see the FPA carrier fire either its main weapons or its missiles in the anime. Iracundus 14:18, 21 September 2011 (UTC)
- Well, discrepancy do happen. Considering FPA tech and design those box launchers are a bit different from missile ships and from normal missile launchers. They look like one shot launchers. I guess they are for bombardment like fusion bombs. Usually, you want to keep carriers in the back. So they hardly get to fire from there. Considering FPA tech their guns are probably short ranged and won't do unless directly face to face. Kind of useless against warships. One reason I find it strange to have them all sent to the front in (LOGH: 'Visitors') only to loose all in one barrage. Almael 21:17, 21 September 2011 (UTC)
Fighters in Bays
Anyone know how many space fighters the Alliance and Imperial carriers could carry? I can't find good numbers...FPA Forever
- I think its 100, in 10 rows of 10 each. Vympel 23:15, 28 January 2012 (UTC)
