    Given the stratospheric agility of the iFighter and the durability of the Taipan, I think they could have given the Condor slightly worse transverse acceleration than the Taipan and been very balanced in the end.

    Why would I use a small ship tactic from the bridge of a big old ship? Especially when big ship tactics (see above) work so much better! :P A highly skilled stealth Cobra 4 (honestly one the better pilots I've seen, the same guy in Morbads video) tried going up against my Corvette. He barely escaped with 1% hull intact and only then because the instance crashed. So, I guess you could say I live in the very real (Virtual) world of Elite Dangerous.

    + rep for the Who reference if nothing else :) I tend to agree with you though. I don't grind either, to the extent that I have less than 1 mil in the bank (Though I do own many ships), but I am enjoying the game and have done for over two years now.

    Absolutely, CMDR Bortas, but the OP is not a seasoned PVP'er, he would not have asked here if he was, amirite? Any ship is bad news in the hand of an experienced player. Now for an easy to go to, flyable, potential lethal ship, the FAS wins by far in my opinion. On another note, the playstyle associated with playing the FAS will certainly make you a much better pilot. Frag cannons, getting into position out of reach of victim, staying there, delivering your payload, once twice...game over. The FAS's high agility goads you into trying all sorts of manoeuvres, circle strafe, pitch strafe, diagonal strafe (difficult) all sorts, why ? Because the FAS is so forgiving to fly. When modded it becomes even more "living" and considering its massive mass, huge armor, it is a opponent to respect. Figthing a FAS can be difficult, an option is to make an alpha strike on it for as long as the capacitor holds, and keep it at distance if you can. Other CMDR's can better eleborate on this than me.

    Shipping lanes? Smuggler at Nav beacons Combat Aftermaths in Shipping lances Some ships you wouldn't expect might drop what you are looking for Conductive Ceramics for example state can be found "Ship salvage (transport ships), Signal source (anarchy)" but Anacondas in CZ can leave them as Salvage as the Anaconda is in the list of transport ships

    With out being arrogant, I imply you, CMDR, to look over the stats again, you seem to have missed a few points. I will help you :): The FAS has a much, much higher speed than the FDS, it is so much more agile and responding than the FDS. When modded for combat the FAS is a right out killing machine, the FDS is just another target. The FAS is a Vulture on steroids. With immense armor. It loves the "Ram- Atam" dance, and can do it too. Back to Coriolis, and pay attention, Padawan :) Cheers Cmdr's

    There, CMDR Liqua, I tend to slightly disagree. You can hardly blame Stan Kubrick on that one, The blue Danube was not widely used before his use of the piece in this movie. The scene is rightfully classic and spot on ( Thx CMDR Saool :) ) and inspired others after that. The movie was impressively done for its time, and remains a deservedly remains a top watch sci-fi movie today. So many scenes have become "Classics". Hal, anybody ? " I can not do that, Dave" ? I think that instructors after him have used the music exactly to convey the impressions induced in 2001. And there I agree, it's too bad that cannot themselves create such an experience. It was a stroke of genius that the original Elite used the piece while docking, and E: D has thankfully not changed this :)... An surely CMDR Liqua, you dont use a docking computer, do you ? ;) Cheers Cmdr's

    Is smuggling viability affected by the BGS in terms of viability? If not it really should be, certain "states" should make smuggling more profitable. That would fit in well with the rest. If a pirate minor faction in a system is "on the roll" surely this should make more missions of this sort appear. (It may well be so, I dont know) Cheers Cmdr's

    "Curiosity killed the cat" is an old proverb that might fit. Any way the Python might have been a lowly mission type vessel, there are many possibilities. But you cant really blame him can you, I mean close to an Engineer base and all.. So yes, he was on the ball, observed, acted and avoided any nasty encounters. I'd say I would have done the same if carrying one of those "tasty" (FD, see what you done!!) 8,5 mill. credit missions. Cheers Cmdr's

    Hi Ben; I'm not much of a communicator. But, I'm privately messaging my friends. -Not going to continue on the 'Forums' for a while; They are just too toxic for me, and 'wind' me up too much...

    Ive' played this 'game' enthusiastically since released and love space; - to be honest though, I'm more of a game and less of a deep 'Sim' player. -So I'll be following developments...
