Thread: FAS Owner Club - The definitive Assault ship!

    Here she is, dressed to kill in her pirate faction outfit.
    Does she not look like a real fatal beauty?



    It's ridiculous, I love this beast ever more the longer I fly it, and there was an extra burst with any other ship I ever tried. They are all gathering dust now in some far away starport garages, including the brand new Krait. They are all just... nah. Not for me.

    I'll do an oil change now, vacuum clean the cockpit, refill the coffee maker, and go kick some asses

    Yet a size 5 scoop has no mass and will finish scooping by the time you're on the other side of the star.
    The tanks just seems the worst of options.

    Thou hast a point
    Never thought about it that way. I'll sure try this out the next time I leave (temporary) home.

    As after any game update I've seen so far, mission rewards are on an all time low, so I'm sticking with power play longer than intended, raking in the weekly 50 mil plus the missions I do once the required merits are secured. Somewhat spooky, I'm in hostile space yet allied with everybody, and the cops all stay green while I shoot down legions of clean ships

    I generally swap a fuel scoop for whatever largest mrp I'm running, then buy a new one at/near the destination since you can't engineer those anyhow.

    If you leave a scoop in it also absorbs some of the module damage you incur, not sure if tanks do or not.

    Honestly, since I started flying the FAS shieldless, I found myself reluctant to look for a different combat ship, as they would probably require shields to work well, and I got spoiled rotten by not having to touch the pips at all.

    I'd loose them if I were you, you ate nearly the amount you'd eat without it, more heatsinks and silent running.

    That engagement was from a while ago. My FAS is currently sidelined but it will make a comeback. Always does.

    I presently run mine shieldless, with prismatics or bi-weaves depending on what I'm up to. Prismatics are great for short-term engagements like assassination missions, they hold up fine with no pips to sys until the mission target is dealt with. For conflict zone or RES runs I prefer the bi-weaves since the prismatics eventually do go down and it takes forever to recharge them. I just don't have the patience to wait that long, and regularly end up fighting shieldless again
