nickm created the topic: A General question RE: the balance of power between Confed & the Kats!
I know that the Confed/Kilrathi War is supposed to be kind of 'The Pacific War--IN SPAAAACE!!' But how would you 'weigh' the two sides? In the Pacific War, Japan's industrial & manpower resources were quite inferior to the US but had relatively small but very experienced combat seasoned cadre & the invariable ethos to fight to the death. But clearly in the Wing Commander Universe, things seem to be flipped, Confed has the technical edge on the Kats but lesser resources & manpower, while the Kilrathi have almost limitless 'cat-power'. Would the balance of power be as extreme as US v Japan (with the resources reversed) or more like Germany v the USSR or The British & the Commonwealth v The Axis?
