It's an "eye candy" ship as much as I know. I've seen a boron TL as a hospital ship and a mamooth as a cruise ship.

There's an Argon Casino (mammoth) in permenant residence at the Terracorp HQ in Home Of Light in my game.

And there used to be a Teladi Hospital Ship (can't remember Teladi TL name) in Siezewell... until one day I found my first "Unknown Object", didn't realise it was a missile and accidentally launched it while I had the Hospital Ship targetted.

After about 20 seconds I decided it must have been a bug as I couldn't see any missile (it was under and behind my ship) and didn't see any explosion so I just flew off and about 2 mins later i heard "No Aim" and this almighty bang...

Took ages to cheer them up with me again :)

I was talking about this before guys. Will include screenies when I see one. I have seen a Teladi Arena, Mammoth Hospital Ship parked at Terracorp HQ, Paranid Deadalus, and a few other unidentified TL's. Some have differences from the standard TL, whereas some do not.
Time to get SPACED OUT!

I learned their power the hard way to but if you use them wisely they are SOOO useful! Got a pirate station that won't let you dock.. Wipe it out! (pirate stations have huge sheilds but it will wipeout everything in about a 2 km distance of the explotion like those pesky laser towers and also take out 50% of the sheilds of the pirate base the rest is easy without the laser tower (I fly a Mamba Raider with 8 AHept's) but if your ship won't take down the shields a few of these unknowns will wipe it out! Also it will take out any J or K as far as I know in ONE shot!! ;-)

Enjoy

...if you manage to hit it (i.e. the missile doesnt get shot down)

Have read in other threads if you not target a ship and then shoot a missile at it it wont shoot it down as not a threat, cant do this with unkowns thou as they are not dumbfire. never actually tried this myself not met anything bar caps that require missiles.

I keep unknown uses them on khaak clusters and anything harder than a TL.

Wasting them on pirate stations just sit there and spend 10 mins blowing it up. It might launch a nova or 2 in defence thats about it.

I like pirate bases in my sectors can bust smugglers and when you have a police licence earn some credit and reps have your sector defence nail anything it spawns.

I reckon I did the Teladi a favour. Sick Teladis are profit liabilities, not profit opportunities :twisted:

so basically casino and arena ships are purely cosmetic?
DAMN would have loved the idea that boarding a gambling ship would give you alot of credits
