Ship Builds & Load Outs Share your Medium Sized Combat Ship

Hello all, I am in need of recommendations for a medium sized combat ship.

Money isn't an issue, please share away. Yes I already know about the vulture, I'm just hoping to get a lot of variety in this thread for ideas of my own. Thanks and 07 commanders.

Krait MkII can be excellent: even with my limited engineer access I’ve had it rocking 1500MJ BiWeaves, 2x C2 / 1x C3 Efficient Thermal Vent Beam Lasers and a brace of C3 Focused PAs.
 
If you have access to Guardian shield enhancement packages (fits in optional internals) you can use the three Fed ships, they usually relied on massive hull hit points with lowish strength quick rebuild bi-weave shields, now with several Guardian packages the defence can be more shield focused.

These ships now can now have much stronger shields and this means weapons that require careful aim (PA's, rail guns, cannons, frags) are now a lot more viable because you have more time (before shield collapse) to land several salvos.

From my experience adding too much additional shielding can negate the bi-weave fast charge performance so a range of 600 - 900 MJ for the Fed ships gives a decent balance between strength and regen/rebuild.
