Ships Need More Ship Role Possibilities

Hey Cmdrs,

I am looking for assistance in finding new roles for ships. I have created over 125 ships for all the Power Players and Superpowers. Each ship with a specific role. I need more reasons to build more ships! Maybe you know of some other roles and specific load outs that you have created. You can check out my builds by clicking on my banner below.

The ship roles I have so far and the ships I have used in these roles are:
* Ship(s) I think is best in that role
Note: all my ships have docking comps.

Combat - Must have Military grade armor, largest shield possible and guns. Collector limpets optional.
(Eagles, Vipers, Vulture, Chieftain, Python*, Assault, Asps, Diamondbacks, Fer de Lance)

Combat w/Fighter - Just like combat but with a fighter bay
(Keelback, Anaconda, Corvette*, Gunship, Cutter, Type 10)

Bounty Hunter - Just like combat but with FSD indictor and Kill Warrant Scanner
(Eagles, Vipers, Vulture, Chieftain, Python*, Fer de Lance)

Freighter - Smallest shield possible and all cargo racks

High intensity CZ, the Python isn't big enough to become the focus of attention (unlike a Vette or Conda) but it's a serious big ship killer with 5 PAs,KLuG3J4AxhXCthXIxCpMypDKLuG3J4AxhXCthXIxCpMypDKLuG3J4AxhXCthXIxCpMypDKKUG3J4AxhXCthXIxCpMypDKKUG3J4AxhXCthXIxCpMypD,DBwGBJ3Gj7iMuKVOj7iDBwG7I3IuKVKj7iOj7iDBwG9Ib6phX8u00IrSAMrSAQrSADBwG9Ib6phX8u00IrSAMrSAQrSA,9p3G5H44v7iAkPcEkPcIkPcAAAG3I40sPc50pD8phXEphXAPoG5H56qpD8phXEq00GwPcKypDAdsG5Ha0upD6qpD8qpDGyPcAsYG3022_006wPcBAEG7Id4upDGwk5MrmfOwk5UrmfWwk5crmfBOmG3G32_Pc6y00Iu00Bcg0,,7UeG9H34wPcasPcgy000AA00AA016yG5H50wPc4zmfAqpDEqpDIqpD25S0072005U005U02UI0

Racing Viper, you can get over 900 m/s boost with a smaller PD and drag drives but it's bonker fast, just over 2000 mph on boost!,,,9p3G5H44v7iAkPcEkPcIkPcA4OG6HZ6kPc8phXCkPcAL7G5Hb6qpD8phXEq00GwPcKypDAZeG5240u006phX8phXGxCpApGG3022_006wPcB3_O5I6IqpDMkPcOypDSx2aYqpDcqpDBK4G3G32_Pc6y00Iu00BX_0,,mpT7OWG3Jb2y006u00AwPcIlhXKqpDmpT0nE1

I never thought about racing ships. Thats awesome! Going to build some now.

I thought they nerfed the skimmer missions so that you have to kill them in an srv?

They probably have nerfed the skimmer missions but I made a few hundred mil before I got bored with it and reconfigured the T 10 into a miner (works great too!)

Some more racing ships to check out but the Viper has the best engine noise,,,9p3G5H44v7iAkPcEkPcIkPcA3wG5I30sPcAqpDEzCpAL7G5H56qpD8phXEq00GwPcKypDAakG5I40upD6qpD8qpDGyPcAniG3022_006wPcB3_O5IcIqpDMkPcOypDSx2aYqpDcqpDBIWG3G32_Pc6y00Iu00BX_0,,mpU7OWG3Jb2y006u00AwPcIlhXKqpDmpU0nE1,,,9p3G5H44v7iAkPcEkPcIkPcA3wG4HZ0j7iAhhXEu00AL7G5H56qpD8phXEq00GwPcKypDAZeG2I46hhXEsPcGhhXKj7iAniG3022_006wPcB0sO5I6IqpDMkPcOypDSx2aYqpDcqpDBIWG3G32_Pc6y00Iu00BX_0,,mpT7OWG3Jb2y006u00AwPcIlhXKqpD
