No skyguard is already very effective. Accuracy rates dont mean anything. Totally different weapons, and ESF pilots arent shooting at things 1km away. Hornets dont even travel 1km they just disapear at 500 meters. Oh the same thing flak should do imagine that. Also there are very VERY few skyguard pilots who dont spend clip after clip trying to shoot planes at render range. Hornets require the ESF to remain stationary while also having the inherent weakness of being the 3rd most visible unit in the game after galaxy and liberator. If another ESF comes along while you are hovering with hornets you WILL die very badly. Skyguards get to hide on the ground, typically far behind enemy lines where they are safe from enemy tanks. They get to use covor to keep them safe from air, if they are skilled. Another reason that skyguard pilots have low accuracy is the type of player who pilots a skyguard. Typically a skyguard pilot is someone who hates air, but isnt good enough at ps2 to play every role that they need to be effective so they don't fly. Most of the really good players either just get in a plane and go kill the ESF that killed them, or the really good ones dumbfire you. So the less skilled players are the players who would resort to a cheesy weapon like skyguard, hence the lower accuracy. In contrast flying in PS2 is quite a difficult thing. It takes fortitude to learn. It is extremely frustrating for EVERYONE when they begin. I used to tell my friends that flying was the best way to commit suicide. So someone that is using Hornets is probably going to be a better player than someone who uses a skyguard. And id like to add that my depiction of skyguard pilots is mainly true, although there are good players who use them who just pwn. Nevarc is one of them. And you always say that air shouldnt counter air, but you know what is the only way to kill a GOOD skyguard pilot? Yep another tank. Trying to kill a GOOD skyguard pilot with an ESF, or even a bad one is just sheer folly, and it is silly of you to say otherwise. You go get your hornets on chingles, ill get in my skyguard and you come take me out.
