    Slingloads aren't suppose to swing back and forth purposely.

    it doesn't have to swing. it just has to travel fast enough to make people dead. all hell would break loose if it hit the ground though.

    Meh, not as fun. Swinging it back and forth like a barbarian on crystal meth would be a whole lot cooler.

    I wonder if the recoil from those guns affects the course of the ship any...

    I would think it does affect it, slightly. Action = Reaction
    They probably travel with armadas, as well as have enough tech to find their way back 'home'.

    That just tells me you are an OG. Buff is the perfect nickname for that aircraft.

    Cocky commander thought buff was a fighter, did stupid stuff with it. An airshow came up and the squadron commander didn't allow his crew to fly with him, he took the sortie himself. Tight banked turn, too low and too slow, the jet skidded right into the ground. There's a fine line between terribly sad and straight up wrong doing.

    *editted for clarity, the sq. commander took the sortie and flew in the copilot seat, the wing (or group, not sure) flew the jet and crashed it.*
