I have 202 mil rn, I need good ship with longest range possible, and nice slotsThere is no better without context of preference.
Anaconda is great for range and module space but poor sc performance and difficult to put down on surface.
The Asp has a great view and long range but fewer slots.
Diamondback has better range and great thermals but smaller fuel scoop and smaller slots.
Python is a good all rounder, plenty of slots, but has a poor view.
I would pick the Asp or DB personally but I prefer the Kraits.
I definitely agree with the above statement, however. Pretty much any ship can be engineered to be an explorer. The best in terms of jump range? Maybe not. But you can make due with pretty much anything.Whichever you enjoy flying. Considering you will be sitting in it for hours and hours on end, you want to have an enjoyable experience.
Asp or krait phantom. Asp is a lot cheaper but the krait has great range, pretty good views and better internals. Both also use a class 5 drive of which there is a specially engineered version which will give you more range.
Add SRV, FSD Booster, small shield generator, self repair device, extra fuel tank, fuel scoop...and it gets quite squeezed...Asp Explorer offers great performance (when engineered) and is possibly the 'go to' standard for exploration.
The DB is equally as good.
Tall order. Best jump ranges are DBX and Conda, but DBX has few slots, and Conda can easily go over budget. I'd advise Li Yong Rui space regardless for the discount. Phantom has the next best range, and second best space. Honestly fits the criteria the best, although maybe I'm biased as I love mine (that cockpit). Asp is about 90% of the Krait for a fraction of the price, if you want to make a more frugal purchase that fits requirements. However, the fish bowl canopy and noise it makes drove me insane, so I'm cautious recommending it fully.
