The question is clearly provocatory. My experience in random platoons and in my outfit's squad is no one is using the Valkyrie except to have a laugh in Teamspeak. It's cheaper than the Galaxy, but in current resources system's situation nanites mean nothing. They regenerate so quickly that resources cost can almost be ignored. So why bother at spawning a Valkyrie? The Galaxy is slower but it's far more effect at transporting troops: - It doesn't get burned to ashes by ESF, while it has instead a chance to resist and counter attack. - It's tough enough to fly over the biggest battles and drop a lot of soldiers. - It can equip improved weapon systems covering every angle and helping clear the landing area. - The safe drop upgrade is already included in the vehicle. While the Valkyrie: - Is extremely vulnerable to ESF as it's less maneuvrable and it's slower. - It has no afterburner for emergency retreat. - It's extremely fragile. It can be repaired from rumble seat, but at such a slow rate that the vehicle still cannot survive sustained fire. - Despite the inner flak proteciton passengers can still be killed while sitting in the vehicle. - Safe drop is not included but it's basically mandatory, otherwise it turns into a deadly trap for passengers. - Accuracy from the rumble seat is very low, dramatically reducing chances that passenger manage to clear the landing area. - Weapons system have a limited firing arch. Does this justify saving 200 nanites? Hell no, it doesn't.
