The only game I have ever played online was Air Attack (WWII fighter sim with RAF, ASAAF, Luftwaffe and Japanese teams), about 8 years ago.  They had several arenas, allowing one-on-one, free for all and team games.  The free-for-all had two arenas, with the upper ranks banned (in regs ulations, but not in software) from playing on the lower ranks arena to give the newbs a chance.  

There was still the odd twat who, despite being an Air Marshall or whatever, with the high level of experience and the top end aircraft that were unlocked with the high ranks, would come onto the newbs' arena for some easy kills to boost their stats.  There will always be some who behave like that, so if the MkVII will be available to high rankers only, with newbs starting on MkIIs, then it would be best to lock the seniors out of the newbs' games by software and not rely on good conduct.

While its true in earlier iterations the MKVII was a superior ship, with the current tables every craft has its strengths and weakness, none are exactly superior to the others if flown by a pilot who knows how to press the craft's advantages.

Yes... Can't wait to see how stats compare between various "flavors" of Viper & how they both stack up to a Cylon Raider.

Raptors are recon craft.

Still not a saucy number in space, however. RECON CRAFT!

Apparently you haven't seen the "attack" version of the Raptor with 2 big missile pods hung on it...
 
Not a fighter per se, but capable dishing out some hurt all the same!:naughty:

It's four, not two, they've got a couple underwing as well. And KEWs too, some of them.

It might have been bad picture quality, but I think some of them didn't have the KEW mounts on the wingtips.
