Quarto said:Hehe, not too well, because I wouldn't confirm or deny anything even if you did guess right .
I can say, however, that your line of reasoning is a bit off. I guess I did sorta rule out the Banshee (...or did I? When Armada says it's a new fighter, does that really mean it wasn't in service a month earlier? ), but I certainly never ruled out the Hellcat, and never said anything at all about the Phantom . Even the Thunderbolt couldn't really be ruled out, since we don't know when it actually appears.
I'm mightily tempted to say a few more things just to confuse you - like for example, that I never actually said it wouldn't be campaign-flyable, just that there's no reason to think it would be. But of course, the trouble with saying such things is that people often assume that you're actually confirming something when you're merely not denying it in order to confuse them... so maybe we've said enough already .
