GalNet News informs about a marauding Terran Osaka in Trinity Sanctum. Helpers will get a reward. I like that and jump in.

To the beacon. The scum tends to loiter near some Gate and Trinity has four Gates. The big ship is beyond my scanner range, but some escorts are visible, including a Claymore.

Someone starts to spam me with missiles and there are several Jump events near the Gate. The Paranid RRF are truly rapid today. And numerous. Must haste. Jump to the Gate.

Manual jump. If I'm going to get rammed to death, that should so it. Doesn't. Race to the big catch. Quite desperate with all the RRF armament around, but one has to try. To be honest, I would have bet on the Emperor's choir boys to score the kill.

Turrets in range ... first shots reaching the target ...

When things could go well for the player, the game rage quits. Luckily, my computer does not have a peripheral that could perform the spit action. :roll:

Thank goodness! I suspect mine would spit at me regularly! Just because I talk mean to it, not because I really win anything.

This talk of Hammerheads reminds me of when I started AP as an Argon Peacekeeper in the middle of a battle, one of the first crates I picked up contained two Hammerheads. So I fired one at some hostile Terrans that were approaching before I turned tail and ran. Suddenly, "BOOM!" and in my kill record there was the confirmation: two M5s, an M4 and an M3 had been caught in the blast radius. First shot, four kills. Not bad! :lol:
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!

I was flying my starting M3- it wasn't my ship caught in the blast :D . I just launched it just to see how much damage I could do with one missile. Turns out, quite a bit :lol:

And then some, as I witnessed some time ago:
I wrote:near the North Gate of Maelstorm a random Pirate Nova made a memorable move: a Hammerhead kamikaze. Luckily a forward portion of my Nova escorts were sufficiently ahead, and only 9 of them were killed there, with my Centaur safely away from the blast.
Another X3R experiment: the Teladi Phoenix was a bit lacking in anti-fighter armament. The most efficient were (1) ramming by turning quickly, and (2) Hammerheads, point blank. The 10GJ shield of Phoenix did not mind.

Yeo you are right :) im still playing it since its launch in 2008. And i still prefer it to Xrebirth.
