    i was thinking upon mdhay comment about the harimau molded in play-doh , in truth the ship has something childish and toy-looking, not to make any offense, the design is gorgeous but it was a thing who was in my mind from some time

    Talking

    Yeah i know Like a child designed it. Thats cos Harimau race, and save the world at the same time. Were nice guys

    The Pure model wasnt the best, but personally i think the HD model is slick, and the 3rd ship skin is awesome. For ages I thought the 2nd yellow skin was the best... but nah

    (Waiting for Supersocks to deliver a toy advert featuring Harimau)

    I'm willing to try out the Harimau. And all the other ships I missed in Pulse.

    Ill be honest there are days when i test other crafts to see if i fancy a change.

    Its just amazing how much speed a Harimau can lose if your lines arent perfect, and your flyings not super slick.

    Sideshifting through corners where possible is even more of a bonus than normal when using Harimau. Their low thrust can sometimes take sooooooooo long to pull your ship up to top speed after airbraking hard.

    I find in many non wepon races if i take a corner wide, old wellington is his feisar is flying through, though on fast high speed corner tracks like vineta k reverse where you can repeatidly sideshift over airbraking, even a high flying Icarus hitting perfect lap after lap will find it hard to pass if you get it right.

    In my humble opinion, the Harimau now is like a slightly lesser version of the Van-Uber ship I loved in fusion. Despite it clearly not being the best in the series, that ship had be glued to it. Awesome hadling, almost top speed, and bugger all shields..... who needed shields when you cant get caught

    I know your shields already rubbish but go on boys! drop it another little bit to make room for just a little bit more thrust!

    I think the difference between Assegai and Harimau's stats is compensated by Harimau's much smaller bulk, which I think represents quite an advantage in itself.

    Of course, a smaller bulk means less weight, supposedly putting you in a significantly less favorable situation in case collision with another craft occurs...

    This may change the outcome of a race every now and then, but I really don't think it changes anything in the long run. Whatever the craft you like to pilot is, I believe it is in your best interest to avoid collisions as much as possible, and this is when a smaller ship with very good handling has the advantage.

    Fly Harimau, save the world.

    harimau smaller bulk than assegai??? are you drunk?

    practically assegai is a leaf! the twin hulls are two long leaves until the cockpit and they aren't even attached from the front but from the sides and if you take a look in between you can see the empty space...it give me a feel of frailty umm brrr, have you try to rotate the ships in the teams menu and take a look friend, a deep look...have you noticed that assegai practically have two long hulls thick like a paper and under there is nothing, till the cockpit/engine then there are the two airbrakes which are thin as well and attached to the base

    the only conpact part is all the stuff just around the cockpit...how you can state that harimau is less bulkier, harimau is full like a sandwich in comparison, harimau have a sort of underbelly just below the chassis...maybe assegai is wider ,yes it is, but not bulkier c'mon!
