Never use it for fighting craft smaller than an M3+, use it against larger craft!

The only reason any X3 player has this ship is because they think it looks cool.

This is just an Armoured Transport. At best.

Worse than other M6. I recommend to buy other corvette. If you're playing AP and have no chance to buy commonwealth corvette, go to the ATF Shipyard and take Vali instead.

I find this to be a very horrible ship. Yes it has unlimited energy for EMPCS, good shielding ect. But the frontal lasers are split into two groups on the sides of the reticule. This leads to poor and frustrating targeting as you have to be good at compensating for the fact that the lasers go to both sides of whatever your targeting. Which at that point your only using half the frontal damage potential. The only thing you can hit with any reliability is capital ships. Which if you try to take on a capital ship with this thing your dead. This is the worse ship in X3

Best player ship IMO. Has unlimited laser energy for EMPCs, huge shields, is quite fast, extremly low frontal profile, big cargo space, powerful enough to wipe out any fighter or corvette, and sometimes you can smash a Q or a Carrack with this!
