The GTF Valkyrie


Description:

FS1 Tech Room Description

Using the old GTF Angel Scout Fighter as a template, the GTA created the Valkyrie Interceptor Fighter. It has two additional engines, as well as an additional set of primary hardpoints. This makes the Valkyrie the best bomber interceptor in the fleet. Its speed is unmatched in the GTA, and its maneuverability is above average. Its only drawbacks are a small secondary payload and weak hull.

Developer Notes

High speed recon and bomber-intercept fighter. Offers high weapon compatibility and payload.

Name origin

In Norse mythology, valkyries are minor female deities. They were tasked to choose the worthiest of those heroes who had died in battle, and deliver them to Valhalla, Odin's hall.

Veteran Comments

Read the Veteran Comments policy before editing this section.


The Valk does its job, and does it well, but when asked to perform in another role it turns out to be disturbingly fragile. If the mission calls for extended dogfighting or attacking transports or military capital craft, you're probably going to want something sturdier.


Flies like a dream. You'll love the huge Afterburner capacity with all power shunted to Engines.


It is also noteworthy that AI pilots tend to drop like flies when piloting this ship, so don't expect much backup if you've been flying a long missions in a wing of Valkyries. I have always maintained that the AI should be overhauled, as it is quite pitiful to see it lose with such a superior fighter craft.


I found its guns placements rather lousy, and the singular bay really pigeonholes you . The Perseus is a great improvement over the Valkyrie, despite what some say.
