The GTB Artemis D.H.


Description:

The Artemis D.H. is a simple reskinning of the GTB Artemis. It is unknown what D.H. stands for, but HLP members have suggested "Dark Hull" and "Death Head."

Despite the tech description, the Artemis D.H. is statistically no different than the regular Artemis.

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 The most notable change is that the Artemis's factory-issued Han-Ronald engines have been replaced by the same Nankam NA-27f powerplant now found in the GTF Ares fightercraft.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.

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.


There isn't any difference between the two besides multiplayer weapons compatibility.


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


Given the choice though, I'll still fly this one, since it just looks so much cooler.


There were probably great things planned for this raft, but Volition probably got lazy.
