The GTB Artemis D.H.


The GTB Artemis D.H. is an experimental variant of the GTB Artemis, although in reality it is just a simple re-texture of the latter. Contrary to the tech description, the Artemis D.H. is exactly the same as the regular Artemis in terms of statistical performance. However, it exhibits a slightly different rear fin design to the regular Artemis.

It is unknown what D.H. stands for, but some HLP members have suggested "Dark Hull" and "Death Head."

Description:

FS2 Tech Room Description

The GTB Artemis D.H. is an experimental variant of the standard Artemis class. The most notable change is that the Artemis's factory-issued Han-Ronald engines have been replaced by the same Nankam NA-27f powerplant now found in the GTF Ares fightercraft. The D.H. variant is faster and more maneuverable than the standard Artemis bomber, at no cost to armor or armament. During the OpEval period, Artemis D.H. bombers are being deployed in only select squadrons in different theatres of the war. If the evaluation trials go well, wider deployment of the Artemis D.H. class is expected.

Name Origin

In Greek mythology, Artemis was the twin sister of Apollo and the daughter of Zeus and Leto. Artemis was the goddess of hunting and the wilderness. She was also associated with the moon, analogous to Apollo, who was associated with the sun.

While many pilots, myself included, swear up and down that the Artemis D.H. is superior to the Artemis, this is, as Setekh has termed it, the "placebomber" effect. The only functional difference between the Artemis and Artemis D.H. is their texturing, as examination of the table files shows.


Besides multiplayer weapons compatibility, there is one minuscule difference in the model. The DH Artemis has only three tail fins. The standard has four.


Many mods decide to improve this ship's turn rate, speed, energy reserves or shields as a result of the improved powerplant the D.H. is supposed to have.
