FS2 Demo Tech Room Description
The first line the the Demo description reads "We believe that the Astaroth is a Shivan Harpoon." It doesn't make much sense to me, as the Astaroth obviously isn't a dogfight missile. I don't have the demo, though so I don't know if it that is really what it says. Confirmation? - Droid803 03:09, 28 April 2009 (UTC)
- Maybe the Harpoon was supposed to be the name of some ultralight GTVA fighter, then its name was used for the missile we know. Perhaps it's a possible candidate for FreeSpace Trivia?
(I suspect the Serapis was at first called a Harpoon, but then V decided to follow its own traditions of using Egyptian names for Vasudans) - TopAce 16:53, 28 April 2009 (UTC)
