FS1 Tech Room Description
The Horus interceptor can outrun any ship in the PVN or the GTA. This makes it extremely dangerous. Its above average weapons capacity, combined with its good maneuverability and shielding make this one of the most well designed Interceptors in the galaxy. This ship is responsible for the destruction of more GTA bombers than any other.
As a C class threat, Horus interceptors should be dealt with as quickly as possible.
FS2 Tech Room Description
The GVF Horus was the fastest fighter class during the Great War and it's still the fastest fighter in the GTVA fleet. Its weapon capacity is average for a fighter, with four primary banks and two missile bays. The Horus pays for its speed and maneuverability with thin armor and relatively weak shields. The Horus shines as a bomber interceptor, a role Allied Command puts it in as often as possible. For offensive operations against well-defended targets, however, the Horus is a poor choice.
Extremely fast with good weapons compatibility. Very useful in any kind of engagement.
FS2 Horus is slightly more manuverable and more powerful than it's FS1 cousin. - Eishtmo
The Horus is a good ship in FS1, something to worry you if you're flying a bomber or a Herc. It is a priviledge to be able to fly in FS2, and also, strangely superior to the newer Serapis in most respects. Compared to the Serapis the Horus' only serious flaw is smaller secondary banks, and the Horus actually has stronger shields and is faster. These qualities give it a better survival rate in combat then the Serapis, in my experience. Given a choice I will fly the Horus rather then the Serapis every time. - ngtm1r
