Hokay, so: If Tyber Zann on the Eclipse, Admiral Piette and Darth Vader on the Executor, and Wedge Antilles on the Lusankya, all battled each other in a three way battle, Who would win? Conditions: 1) Eclipse is finished and up and running, but has no superlaser, and has same amount of lasers and guns as the other two. 2)No escort frigates/capital ships 3) 15 TIE Fighter Squads 15 TIE Intercepter Squads 15 TIE Bomber Squads 15 TIE Defender Squads ______________ 15 X-wing Squads 15 A-wing Squads 15 Y-wing Squads 15 B-wing Squads ______________ 30 Skipray Blastboat Squads 30 Starviper Squads 4) Rogue Squadron (without Luke Skywalker) can be deployed 5) Darth Vader's TIE Advanced + Squad can be deployed 6) Not Empire at War skirmish, just straight up battle That's yours to decide.
Well without the super laser the Eclipse is pratically useless and by only have 15 on each squad its fighter escort advantage is gone.
The Lusankya may be a bigger class than the Executor however it does not hold as much weaponry and relies more on the fighters it can hold.
The Executor has the most guns, thousands of concussion missiles and the strongest shields. With Piette on it it has an even better advantage. Even with Rogue Squadron against them it is a capital ship.
I think tbh this is a big mismatch, Eclipse first off is useless against the likes of the Executor, its like a TIE fighter against the Executor, but of course with the super laser a deadly foe but its without its main credit here.
The Lusankya and the Executor would be a good match, both with good weaponry and even though the Executor has more its still very close, anything could happen, a simple mistake could take the battle in one direction.
But then you have Piette, Executor wins.
The Lusankya is good but it just doesn't match up to the sheer power of the Executor. Both have equally good captains. Rogue Squadron would help against the fighters and would also own Vader's little squad but their lasers would not even be able to harm the Executor.
Even if they landed inside the Executor has thousands of crew members.
A single A-wing took out the Executor, the Rebels were highly outnumbered and still won. I think they'd win again if they had the Lusankya... Time and time again it's been proven that the rebel pilots have enough skill to go up against capital ships. The Imperials rely almost solely on capital ships, which have a hard time going after fighters.
They may have been outnumbered by they concentrated fire on the Executor as it was the capital ship. The only reason the A-wing took out the bridge when it crashed was because its shields were down due to the rebels going all out on it.
Rebel pilots are generally shown to be better yes. The X-Wing squads would be taken otu by Rogue squadron with ease but the Lusankya has worse shields, and less guns than the Executor, also the Executor is larger so can take more hull damage and its guns are more powerful. Piett is also an amazing captain. Rogue Squadron would be pratically useless against the Executor. it would be like throwing grass at an elephant.
