You know how in the PVE space missions, your class ship can roll to the sides with spacebar? Think it should be able to do the same thing in space PVP with the right engine?

You mean like using the Barrel Roll ability, or just hitting the roll keys as you fly?

In the PvE space scenarios you get it as an evasive ability (that doesn't work very well) because the 'on rails' nature of the play makes evasion by steering the ship extremely difficult.

In GSF that's not really an issue, and they also gave us a large collection of escape mechanics to choose from.

That said, I do sort of wish that they would up the roll rates in GSF. Being able to outmaneuver a 747 or Airbus would be nice, especially for the strikes and scouts. Of course, we don't fly against them in GSF so it doesn't really matter.
