Max Speed, Boost, Pitch, Roll & Yaw for Every Ship in Game [Official FDev Stats]

Status: Up to date for Live 2.2.03

The table below sets our every ship's (unmodded) official maximum cruising speed, boosting speed, pitch, roll and yaw stats. I have catalogued the data directly from in-game Outfitting using the best available unmodded thrusters and applicable minimum mass. The '+' signs denote Enhanced Thrusters, where available.

As per Outfitting, Speed and Boost are given in metres per second. Pitch, Roll & Yaw are for degrees of motion per second (so 45.0 Pitch would mean that the ship would take 8.0 seconds to turn 360 degrees).

Hull is each ship's starting hull mass and Mass is the total tonnage that the ship (once outfitted, fuelled and laden) must not exceed in order to achieve its best flight model. Not all ships can achieve this minimum mass easily and some cannot at all without modding (see Notes, below).

Notes

This table was compiled in version 2.1.5 and edited in 2.2.03 due to the Viper III reduction in hull mass from 60 to 50 tons.

The stats are taken directly from Outfitting and have not been 'flight verified.'

In each case I outfitted the ship with max size, A rank thrusters and reduced its mass to beneath the minimum, which provides the optimal flight model. Where applicable, I did the same for Enhanced thrusters.

This is a data catalogue, not a user guide! Some ships are impractical if not dangerous if outfitted to achieve the optimal flight model ... no liability is accepted for insured or uninsured losses incurred ...

I have however included each ship's hull mass. That gives an indicator of how achievable the optimal flight model might be. For example, a Python and an Orca will both achieve max speed / turn stats at or below 720 tons total mass. But the Python's hull starts at 350 tons, whereas the Orca's starts at 580 tons.

Some ships (e.g. the Cobra IV) cannot achieve their minimum mass without modding. Where this is so I record the mass actually achieved over the minimum, e.g. for the Cobra IV: 228.5 / 210.0, meaning I'm reporting the stats at 228.5 tons but the ideal would have been 210 tons.

Naturally, none of the stats above take into account engineered mods - they are 'vanilla'.

Be aware that a key component of manoeuvrability is acceleration (in every plane). Outfitting does not provide stats for acceleration / deceleration either forwards and backwards or using lateral thrusters. These properties differ considerably from ship to ship and are very much a part of each ship's character. Some players have conducted valuable research into the same. One example is the table provided by Cmdr Cliffson here: https://forums.frontier.co.uk/showthread.php/182465-Pitch-Roll-and-Acceleration-for-(nearly)-Every ship

If anyone wants to put the data above into a spreadsheet or similar and link, by all means carry on - post as a comment and I'll edit into the opener with grateful acknowledgment.

Finally, all comments and corrections are of course welcome as ever.

Thanks for posting all this juicy info! +REP for you sir!
 
Cheers for the acknowledgement, i havr been meaning to do max stats to compliment my other work for a while but looks like you beat me too it.

Didn't realise pitch speeds were in game either will have to look out for them.

Am i alright to link yours into mine too?
 
I realize its outside the scope of this compilation, since its not numerical data you can see in-game....but I feel it needs to be mentioned that ships also have different reactions to ENG pips and throttle. Some ships get a bigger kick to speed and maneuverability over their 'baseline' values when you crank more pips into ENG, and some have a stronger difference in maneuverability between blue line throttle and 100%/0%.
 
Thanks for the compiled information!


I wonder though, is it correct with manoeuvrability taking mass into account that isn't the hull mass?

Because as it stands, the statistics of the orca for example says that the optimal is 720 but, mine weighs 2000t and had similar to those manoeuvrability stats (unmodded).
Modded it lowered the optimal mass due to g5 dirty drives. But none of the effects of a all to heavy ship was observed, the optimal mass was still higher than the hull mass however.

Please do and thank you again for your work so far!

Yes, a related aspect to this is how ships react to boost being used before or during turning. Some of the best FdL pilots use boost within turns a lot more than would be helpful in a more typical ship.

It's up, ty!

Yep; edshipyard can model this effect given your actual loadout mass, thruster and ENG pips, and soon(TM) it will also support modeling engineer modifications (thought for thruster speed, that depends on us figuring out the correct thruster speed formula because the one we have so far can't account for modifications).
 
Combining your measurements with my data for the "base" cruise and boost speed for each ship, I've attempted to derive the "base" pitch/roll/yaw figures. In theory, these should reflect the handling of each ship whenever its loadout mass is exactly equal to its thruster optimal mass (except for enhanced thrusters, which we don't sufficiently understand yet):

These values should allow me to add pitch/roll/yaw modeling to edshipyard, which will make it easier to see the handling values given any actual loadout mass. Thanks for your research!

Big thank you for your research Truesilver. +1 mate. I havent played for ages but you got me dreaming about my old enforcer DBS in its dusty hangar waiting for some engineer upgrades. I'm geting some crazy ideas. Thanks for the food for thought. Hope to see you in 2.2 o7
