Wraith Dart (Stargate: Atlantis) Vs Tie Fighter

Wraith Dart (Stargate Atlantis) Vs Tie Fighter (Star Wars)

I’ll have to confess to not knowing much about the Wraith Dart from Stargate, so I don’t want to under estimate it’s powers – So I’ll leave this match to those who know more than I.

Who wins this match?

    @Space marine – love the sound effects, and the emoticons!

    Aside from having advanced weapons that can easily match, if not surpass, your basic TIE, the Wraith Dart has a dematerialyzing ray that is designed to abduct humanoids and store them in an energy form until the vehicle is able to re-materialyze its cargo.

    This means that a dart can fly over a tie and simply remove the pilot…to be later eaten by the Wraith.

    However, tha ship is indeed quite fragile. Gunpowder ballistics (albeit, high caliber) have been able to score kills on these guys. The ship’s main defense is its EXTREME maneuverability, often leaving a dogfight unscathed because the oponent could never get a fix, but this is something that the TIE can easily match.

    Unless the Dart gets to strike with its dematerialyzing ray before the TIE spots it, I think the notorious SW fighter will be the victor.

    @Admin, Thank you. I like those emoticons.

    Well, what i was thinking was that one Dart versus one TIE would definately be a victory for the TIE. But if the Wraith had numbers on their side…darts ftw.

    the TIE has it, had to do a few minuts reasearch first but it seems that the Wraith loses in open combat, though a stealth attack might not be out of the question. The Wraith just doesn’t seem to have the ability to take punishment where as the TIE can. For me, that was the deciding factor in the battle but it would be close, very close and if the TIE pilot got hit by the demat beam then its all over.

    depends what kind of tie fighter

    tie fighter would lose

    tie defender would win

  8. flyboy51 February 1, 2009 at 3:12 pm -      #8

    Wraith darts can beam DOWN as well…a pair of darts could replace the Emperial pilot with a Wraith pilot and either sabotage the TIE or take it over.

  9. =[BF]=JimmieRox February 1, 2009 at 3:16 pm -      #9

    what about a TIE interceptor?

  10. Matapiojo February 2, 2009 at 6:57 am -      #10

    I think that if it was other than the base TIE model, it would have been stated. The fight should continue to be considered the basic TIE.

    Still, the TIE should get the win, like said before, unless the Dart manages to shoot its Decomp. Beam first.

  11. Space marine February 2, 2009 at 4:49 pm -      #11

    Well how far away from each other do they start off from, I think it’s unfair for the wraith to start Over the top of it.

    Start both infront of each other 500 Metres.

  12. flyboy51 February 2, 2009 at 6:36 pm -      #12

    Dart is faster…if the Wraith pilot is better than the TIE pilot, i think they can win. But If the TIE makes a lock…its weapons are too powerful for the dart to sustain.

  13. OMG ITS A SPARTAN!!! February 18, 2009 at 12:01 am -      #13

    it also depends on the tactics if you watch certain stargate episodes many waith run kamakaze runs or if it get shot it trys to come at the tie and even if the tie dodges it the waith pilot might beam himself into the cockpit

  14. WTFMACHINE March 16, 2009 at 11:56 am -      #14

    obviously the TF has no life support and has very limited range.
    winner Dart

  15. atlantis January 2, 2010 at 5:57 pm -      #15

    I will go with wraith dart because of their beaming technology and it’s faster. because of it’s speed I think it could easily out maneuver a TIE fighter. Another thing the beaming technology can beam is also weapons so it is my hypothesis that a wraith can beam the weapons on the TIE fighter into their “cargo bay” and then shoot the TIE fighter

  16. atlantis January 2, 2010 at 6:07 pm -      #16

    sorry if i don’t make sense… any why I remember a time when a wraith hive was powered by a ZPM so why couldn’t a dart also be powered by a ZPM increasing every thing many times over so dart could easily take the punishment from TIE fighter and give more punishment. Not to mention a dart is organic so if it takes damage all the dart would have to do is leave the fight grow back along with more growth making it stronger then return to the fight.

  17. atlantis January 2, 2010 at 6:11 pm -      #17

    and If I recall correctly the machine guns on Atlantis were having a little difficulty destroying the darts the reason is probably there was many darts and twelve hive ships overhead

  18. atlantis January 2, 2010 at 8:13 pm -      #18

    since it hasn’t been stated I’m guessing taht this is just after the “artificial Duplicating” of the wraith so they will have numbers on their side

  19. atlantis January 2, 2010 at 8:14 pm -      #19

    hello, am I the only person interested in this topic at the current moment?

  20. shaun182 January 2, 2010 at 8:18 pm -      #20

    it would seem so, so why dont you wait for a reply or post on different topic.

  21. atlantis January 2, 2010 at 9:52 pm -      #21

    I was starting to think every one was thinking “he’s strange let’s not talk to him” attitude permeated the web… any way if you put a fully charged ZPM inside of a dart my hypothisis is that if it kamikazeed into the death star there would be hardly any thing left of the death star

  22. Inarto January 2, 2010 at 10:03 pm -      #22

    Just checked the stargate wiki and apparently a wraith dart can be taken out
    by M4 fire. Now I have no idea how much energy is in a bullet fired from a M4
    or how strong a TIE fighters laser cannon is. But a article on stardestroyer.net
    gives the laser cannon a very conservative measurment of 60gigajoules

  23. Skrunks January 2, 2010 at 10:17 pm -      #23

    If the wraith dart can be damaged by a modern machine gun, then a Tie Fighter’s blasters woyuld obliterate it with even a glancing blow.

  24. atlantis January 2, 2010 at 10:27 pm -      #24

    if the glancing blow was not in a critical location then the dart will regrow the damage and making the dart even stronger

  25. Inarto January 2, 2010 at 10:35 pm -      #25

    Its also stated on the wiki that Darts lack regenarative armour. So a glancing
    hit is at least gonna cripple the thing. Remember that laser cannons are rapid

  26. atlantis January 2, 2010 at 10:45 pm -      #26

    according to trek wars on yahoo a tie fighter can shoot 40 mega watts of power per shot

  27. atlantis January 2, 2010 at 10:47 pm -      #27

    every thing that the wraith have can grow back if damaged though it can not regenerate if it is destroyed

  28. Inarto January 2, 2010 at 11:01 pm -      #28

    “They lack any shielding or regenerative armor like their larger ships”
    This is directly from the stargate wiki. Here si the link.
    Can I have a link to that group please?

  29. atlantis January 2, 2010 at 11:16 pm -      #29

    ok you made your point I will give up that the darts have regenerative powers

  30. atlantis January 2, 2010 at 11:19 pm -      #30

    it doesn’t say you can’t charge a dart with a ZPM

  31. atlantis January 2, 2010 at 11:20 pm -      #31

    you tube not yahoo

  32. Inarto January 2, 2010 at 11:22 pm -      #32

    Site rules state standard issue unless otherwise specified

  33. atlantis January 2, 2010 at 11:22 pm -      #33

    can I also have the link to star wars and star gate and why are the ones in purple if I’m not mistaken purple and restricted?

  34. Inarto January 2, 2010 at 11:27 pm -      #34

    here is the link for the article on SD.net
    Whats this about purple now?

  35. atlantis January 2, 2010 at 11:40 pm -      #35

    sorry it was orange and I was talking about on fact pile wikipedia and it says “Editing this page is restricted. Please JOIN THIS WIKI AND CONTACT AN ORGANIZER FOR MORE INFORMATION.” it says that on all items that are in orange which regrettibly is most of the topics in the univese section

  36. atlantis January 9, 2010 at 11:54 am -      #36

    any one going to answer because I waited about a week and no one is continuing this thread

  37. Kenny C. January 9, 2010 at 11:58 am -      #37

    Sorry to say it, but it appears that you are the only one who cares about this thread. Sorry!

  38. atlantis January 9, 2010 at 11:36 pm -      #38

    I wonder why I am the only person who “cares” for this thread?

    “according to trek wars on yahoo a tie fighter can shoot 40 mega watts of power per shot”

    Their opinion is not official canon, the ICS however is; which places the output of Starfighter laser cannons at 4.2 terajoules (one kiloton) per bolt.

    The muzzle energy of a single M4 carbine round ( 5.56x45mm NATO) equals 1645 joules of energy, within a minute of constant firing (without reloads) said carbine could unleash around 1,151,500 joules of kinetic energy in total.

    In comparison a single bolt of a TIE fighter laser cannon would unleash about 4.2E12 joules of explosive city vaporizing energy; therefore an M4 carbine would have to fire continuously for six and a half straight years to even generate the cumulative total of kinetic energy that a single TIE laser cannon bolt can release in milliseconds.

    Even a clipping shot will be enough to outright vaporize the Wraith Dart, no question.

  40. atlantis January 12, 2010 at 6:26 pm -      #40

    ok so I am wrong that a TIE fighter can shoot 40 mega watts. As a matter of intrest L-W can a Hive ship survive a TIE fighter blast?

  41. L-W January 17, 2010 at 8:08 pm -      #41

    “ok so I am wrong that a TIE fighter can shoot 40 mega watts. As a matter of intrest L-W can a Hive ship survive a TIE fighter blast?”

    How are you even breathing right now?

  42. atlantis January 22, 2010 at 9:25 pm -      #42

    “how are you even breathing right now” … What are you talking about. Since when was the possibility of me breathing entered this thread. Yes L-W I am Biological life form under the genus of Homo and the species Sapiens so yes I am I am breathing right now

  43. atlantis January 22, 2010 at 9:26 pm -      #43

    One “I am” not two

  44. L-W February 18, 2010 at 12:11 am -      #44

    ““how are you even breathing right now” … What are you talking about. Since when was the possibility of me breathing entered this thread. Yes L-W I am Biological life form under the genus of Homo and the species Sapiens so yes I am I am breathing right now”

    I assumed you suffered some form of brain damage, as indicated by your sheer stupidity. My assumption, in retrospect, was correct.

  45. Sauroposeidon July 3, 2012 at 12:58 pm -      #45

    *attempts to grave dig* So.. any opinions on this one?

  46. Shgon Dunstan September 12, 2013 at 6:15 pm -      #46

    Honestly….. I’d say the two sides are about even. :?

    Thing about the Dart though, is one of their favorite tactics is to use their speed and agility to pull a kamikaze…. But with the numbers being even, all that would get it is a MAD.
