Same here, I liked 3 a bit more then 4.
So do you mean the kilrathi stealth fighter? Since confed only gets a cloaking device at the very ending and only the Excalibur (my favorite all time space fighter!) can use it.
When the Excalibur is not available I always used the Arrow. Light, speedy with no trouble staying on enemy fighters tail. I hate the Hellcat, it's just a worse Arrow in my opinion. Love the Thunderbolt's firepower but it's too slow for my taste. The Longbow is a bomber... 'nuff said.
I don't like it how almost everything will go boom with 1 missile in wingcommander 4. Even heavy shielded craft like Longbows, Thunderbolts and Excaliburs go down in 1 hit.
The Dragon is pretty dang awesome though, but it's so powerful it makes the end of the game rather easy.
All borderworld figher crafts are all pretty average. The banshee is slower version of the Arrow with less firepower (and dangit they won't let you pilot an Arrow in 4, only a bloody hellcat) the vindicator is decent and the Avenger is again... a Bomber, only with far less missiles then the Longbow. Then there is the Bearcat which has a short span of usabilty since you can rather quickly replace it with a Dragon. It's 4 Tachyon guns also tends to miss targets in the center of your crosshair at close range.
I don't recall that much of Prophecy craft though, really need to replay that one.
