Acquiring an Agamemnon

Post by BigMistake » Tue, 16. Feb 10, 23:52

I've been reading... I should say that PBGs, aka flamethrowers, have to be my favorite weapon of this game. I put them on anything I can... I even had them on the main guns of my super-charged Hyperion from my Poisoned Paranid save. So when I read about PSGs, I thought that they sounded like a blast to play with. (Anything described as 2kms of death sounds like fun. :twisted: ) I poked around eng.x3tc.ru looking for a good Paranid ship to test them on and I decided on acquiring my first Agamemnon.

So, after my winded intro I come to my question, where and what is the best place/way to acquire an Aggy?

I have Marines trained and ready, a Cobra fueled and loaded, and an undying hate of the three-eyes... I heard of a blind spot that a M6 can exploit but I am unsure if my Skiron is up for the task of def killing with Ion D's. Plus, I've also read that this thing is hard to find alone out of a Paranid home territory.

The biggest issue I have with capping this M7 is that I have several Chip plants in Paranid territory helping me out with the Hub plot and I don't want to expose them to any risk.

Anyone have any advise for this troubled pirate-turned-businessman? :pirat:

skiron might get roasted if you aint careful :P

id try around the southern paranid areas, theres a pirate sector inbetween third redemption and priest refuge, might also wander into perp sin and clarity's end(both are usually very empty). catching a group going to attack the pirates at heavens assertion's south gate is also very good, that sector is huge, might take a long while for reinforcements to arrive :P

You could just buy a Deimos if all you want to do is test PSGs...

But I wanted to test the PSGs in style... plus I'm still working Ore for the Hub plot and as I stupidly finished all the other plots before the Hub I am bored off my a$$. (I still have the Aldrin mission from the TC plot to do but I am waiting until my marines are ready to... "barrow" the Deca.) lol I'll setup some Sat.s and see if I can't find me a lonely Aggy.

If you have an undying hatred of those three-eyes, then what's the worry about supporting ships around the Aggy? Simply take an M8 or M7M in and forcefully remove all obstructions to your capture. :paranid: -> :skull: = :fg:

I can't let my war dogs off the leash yet... once I no longer need the three-eyes... all bets are off.

Stick some Adv Nav Sats in Desecrated Skies and Moo-Kye's Revenge, Aggys tend to wander through those sectors with reasonable frequency (at least in my game). The problem seems to be that they don't wander out again very often... must be some nasty pirates around :pirat:

Check the military outposts in Paranid space. Patrols tend to be owned by the military outposts and the station info will tell you what ships they own and where they are :twisted:

I'm very very glad I capped my Aggy pre 2.5, I found it's great vs Corvettes- PSGs strip their shields well, and IBLs in the front battery finish them off very nicely.

It's best to stick adv. navsats in as many Paranid sectors you can find, they usually appear near the top of the list in the sector.
In The Threat, the Odysseus was the ship of choice.

In Terran Conflict, it was my Skirnirs that brought the destruction.

In AP, it was my fleet that greeted the Xenon!
