Those are all in the Air Force, the Land Force doesn't operate aircraft except for drone scouts.
But, if a planet was as underdefended as some people have suggested, they wouldn't need to.  Assaulting the capitol, for whatever reason, with a lance or even a company of Mechs, should be tantamount to suicide.

  I'm not sure what underdefended means in this context though.  If 10 planets pool together a fifth of their defense budgets to assemble a pirate/privateer force to raid 1 planet that 1 planet is going to be overwhelmed and outspent by a factor of two to one.  How many planets worth of attackers should 1 properly defended planet be able to repel?

  On the other hand the interstellar bottleneck does work in favor of the defender as you don't have to pay for jumpships and dropships so it might take a larger coalition of parents to assemble a force to overwhelm the defenses of a single planet.  I do like the idea of pirate raiders being kitted out for raiding rather conquering, so going heavy on the aerospace in order to make it to and from the planet but light on the ground forces because they only need local ground superiority to get what they want.
I am a fan of the 3rd Star League.
Sweet looking box art!
i'm going with gross overanalysis of a one-off comment on stage by tired devs
I'm just curious how people could be fans of the third SL due the fact that we barely know what it is.  I think most of us interested in the era have been waiting for ilkhans eyes only specifically to tell us that.  I hate Alaric, but at the same time I want whatever the 3SL is to stomp on Liao who outside of the WoB almost killing off Sun-Tzu and a few RotS hiccups has been essentially on a winning spree since the 4th SW unlike every other major faction which have all faced existential issues.

I think we can make some guesses and we know it somehow survives into the future, but right now the 3SL is little more than a name on some paper and "Alaric's Big Dream" that is going to end up using clan and RotS Mechs.
i'll know when the boxes arrive
My spreadsheet is a simpler table on word (excel/spreadsheets are still arcane to me).  It looks nice, but isn't numbered and if I do it now I'd have to re-format/arrange everything.  30 sounds good, I'll stick with it!
I'd not lump Clan fans as a whole into that category even, as far as sweeping generalizations go. XD

I fail to see where I wrote “all the Clan fans”. You can simply just acknowledge that your statement was wrong instead of trying to go for a gotcha! moment. ;)

But in all seriousness, the passion from the developers is very obvious, and they are trying to pave the way forward for the setting and its growth and future prosperity. There is absolutely nothing wrong with that, and they should be celebrated for it. But that excitement is not being derived from the source they may think it is.

Hence why I said I agree with the point, so not sure why this is being repeated back to me. Either way, I’ve made my point and I’m done here. Just had to respond to the salt. ;)
Really liking the Shogun, Hoplite, and Cicada
