Great as a personal ship. Fill it up with ammo and energy cells and it's a formidable ship to scout the universe. Managed to get this ship from a pirate protecting a Brigantine.

This ship is extremely useful for a variety of reasons. 1 Cargo space it can hold 650 units which is more than ANY m3 class ship. 2 Shielding is above average as well which means it can survive extended firefights. 2 Its weaponry is spread out in a nice defensive pattern further extending the ship's already good survivability. All this being said it only does have a 4 battery main turret, but if you have ever used 8-9 main battery main turrets, you know they will drain your reactor fast. Seems this specific ship excels in tanking fighter dogfights.

His stats are average, but his huge cargo make him exceptionnal. Able to fire hammerhead and equiped with twin turrets, this M3 his great for exploration and can even fight heavy ship (from a distance of course).

A Pretty Terrible Fighter, but an awesome cargo ships for carriers with its 650 units of cargo. Great alterative to freight drones if you can get your hands on enough of them (which is a fairly easy process of just camping out in pirate sectors).

The only thing that lets this ship down is its weapon recharge, but if you stick something with a low energy drain in the turrets for missile defence (IRE's or MD's) it's actually pretty formidable. The rediculously large cargo bay for a ship of its size allows for good use of ammo-based weapons. Plus it looks awesome Wink
