How to get the Sirokos?

Post by kreep69 » Tue, 21. Apr 09, 13:25

For X3TC 2.0 it says you can buy Sirokos from OTAS after successful employment. So I've finished Aldrin expansion missions and I'm well into being employed with OTAS but don't see Sirokos anywhere (not even flying around for NPC ships).

So where do you get this ship at, do yo have to get highest OTAS rank to get it?

I think I've seen it (missile frigate) in Legend's home, among loads of skirons (corvettes) and a Boreas...

Mh before you spend the rest of your life trying to aquire it: It can't mount Boarding Pods, so as a capping ship is useless. Otherways has the best stats of the M7M around.

good luck! :P

Are you sure, can you confirm this? Acording to this it can.

And it has which best stats?

I think the guy two posts ago messed it up. It can mount Pods but it can't board anything else, so no Flails. Which makes it useless as a missile frigate.

Well, it can mount front guns, so you can technically kill the shields of the target the old M6 way. I will have to try that :wink:

Two guns only, right? On an M7?

I don't know if those ship data are correct (I hope not) cause if they are, this ship looks rather useless.

Well, maybe OTAS thought that since they'd built the Aquilo with no means to launch boarding pods, thus making it largely useless, they'd add another M7M that can launch pods but nothing else...so they have two largely useless ships that, together, might just about be worth any normal M7M. :-)

I hope the guy who designed both was fired from OTAS. :-)

The thing that bugs me is the Sirokos has turrets on it which won't mount anything. Egosoft, either nix the useless turrets or give 'em some guns!

I wouldn't call the Aquilo useless. The stats hint at it being used as a pure combat M7M supporting the Boreas. Since AI controled ships are retarded the 6GJ sheilds count for something.

Just load it up full of flails and sick it on fighters/M6s while the player flying the boreas guns down the big stuff. Another option is to keep away from the fight and use it as artillary with hammers/flails from 45km away. Again the large sheilds help it when the enemies notice it.

The other M7Ms really don't do this role as well. Paranid Ares maybe but the rest will go *poof* pretty fast if they get noticed.

hahahahah! True! I was thinking of the Aquilo, the best M7M around if it could use boarding pods.

The Sirokos is plain useless though, my Cobra has a turret too but no way I will use it to lower enemy's shields!

Yeh, one which can do a half job and the other which can do the other half, but the whole is sometimes more than the sum of it's parts.... :roll: :P

I hope they huy who designed the Boreas was promoted!
