Thread: Is this a sign?

  1. #1

    Arrow Is this a sign?

    The Diamndback Scout is orange and grey. Hmm.

    I decided to purchase one today. Its designation was VU-19D. Victor. Uniform. For those who don't know, back in my IL-2 days, that was my main callsign.

    I've been using the DBS today, in a non-combat role. I know, mad right? Even dafter, I'm using it as a mining & salvage ship. Quite enjoyable, and the canopy is great for where I've been working.

    Interestingly, I've chosen to mine ice rings. Which is also daft. LTD's are very rare, after all. But I feel I could happily spend days on end looking for them.

    Armaments are light. The two small hard points are occupied by mining lasers. The mediums by pulse lasers.

    Performance within a planet's sphere of influence is good, and the defensive options are good.

    I'm liking it.

    Yeah. The cockpit is well placed for the manual scooping I do.

    I'm seriously considering camping an ice ring & not leaving until I have 8t LTD's, or my fuel runs short.

    I remember trying to mine in one when I was new... Can't say I enjoyed myself, and I made peanuts. It was easy to scoop with, so that was literally the only positive for me lol.

    Still one of my favorite combat ships, though.

    I never really flew one not until well after i had an anaconda at which point made the DBS useless for me.

    Recently though i have been engineering small ships and have been having fun with them so i might try it, besides i have a fair few imperial hammers to try out.

    LTDs are rare unless your with me in my T9

    Ping me if your hold gets full and you find yourself in need of a LTD courier service. No need to trek all the way back to the station yourself.
