Novas and Barracudas can use them. But I have never captured a ship using a ID. I barely use it. Too dangerous with friendly fire.

You don't know what you are missing. ID+MD = instant bailout. I am flying a Nova Raider but would switch to a Mamba Raider for those pesky Harriers.

I think Buzzard Raider is a non-buyable ship.

yes they are non buyable but pirates tend to use them.

but for get ID's and buzzards get mamba raider (non buyable) secret hidden ship in (dont read if you dont want to know)

loomanckstrat's legacy
8xmass drivers on front 1xmass driver on the back turret

it kicks ass straight to the hull bigger chance of bail with goods onboard intact (sheilds, weapons, missiles) oh yeah and there great for big ships like M1, M2, M6,

i used to have that layout but changed when i saw what damage the back mass driver was doing on its own

piou piou piou piou :twisted: , sweep, half shield left on target (a falcon 1x125mj sheild) and turn round. my back turret blasted through to his hull, a quarter almost gone already.

mass drivers are the best if you ask me.
