Ships Alliance Chieftain, Challenger, Crusader builds for PvE combat

I am looking to try my hand at some bounty hunting to start, and I am wondering if you fine folks could give me some suggestions for current builds for folks just starting out.

That is to say, just stock equipment. No guardian or engineered stuff. I've not yet started unlocking those things.

Any help would be appreciated, thanks in advance!
 
The Challenger would be my pick as it has decent agility and speed but with more firepower and toughness than the other two, as all the Alliance "C" class ships could do with a bigger PD (essentially an all energy weapon loadout would drain the PD weapon capacitor in a few seconds) I fit some weapons for shields and some focused on hull.

In this build use the beams to strip shields and the MC's for hull, against smaller ships the beams will be enough on their own, as a first engineer unlock go to Felicity Farseer as that'll sort out the FSD, thrusters and power plant. followed by the Dweller for efficient beams and charge enhanced PD the Tod McQuinn for MC's. Use Inara for reference https://inara.cz/galaxy-engineers/

Thanks very much for the reply. I do know of Inara, and my intention is to go down the engineering path. Thank you for the ship link, I'll see if I can get that together.
