I'm a big fan of a HEPT equipped Tiger.

Is that an M2 rather than an M7? I haven't got TC open right now, and I don't recall. However by equipping it with HEPTs, and an assortment of missiles, it fills the same role as an M7, and, as far as I'm finding, is riotously fun to fly against hordes of pirates.

I feel that fun is an important part of the ship selection criteria.

Is it Confused

I thought I was cheating by using an M2 as an M7. The new Split ships are confusing. Crazy fast however.

i have to say that an m7 would be the best bet for the future. unless of course you really want to save up for a carrier and a few wings of fighters...that is fun in my opinion. but then again so is squeegeeing a sector of all life Wink

Each race has a single M2, and for the Split, that is, and always has been, the Python. The Split have two different styles of M7's, the Tiger and the Panther. And the Split aren't the only ones with two M7 frigates. The Paranid have both the Deimos and the Agamemnon.

Or if you want to take the shorter route to a carrier deployment. You can pick up one of the "Light Carrier" M7s

The Panther or the Griffon.

Panther = 32 Fighters
Superiority x 12 (Perseus. Nova V. etc.) (Dogfight / Multirole Missiles)
Interceptor x 12 (Mamba V. Barracuda V. etc) (Anti-M4/5 Missiles)
Attack x 6 (Perseus S. Falcon H. etc) (Big Shields + Anti-M6/7 Missiles)
Recon x 2 (Fast M4 to scout.)

Griffon = 25 Fighters
Superiority x 12
Interceptor x 12
Recon x1

I believe the reason that the Griffon carries fewer fighters is because it is meant to be used in Concert with the Cerberus and Minotaur. The Cerberus would carry the Attack Squadron.

The Panther is Split, meant to be used in concert with the Tiger and Cobra neither of which field fighters, so it has to carry it's full compliment.

The Panther is buyable but I don't think the Griffon is obtainable without scripts/mods.

Hyperion sounds really nice Smile But capturing ships is something I don't like in this game :/ I read you can get it for the Bala Gi missions, but can you play them on Terran Conflict?

well, capping is pretty easy, might be a bit tough to learn, but once u get the hang of it, ull get ships by the dozen.

In ur vidar, have 5 marines trained up and trigger happy.

get close to the ships u want to cap (but make sure u know what weapons he has! so u can get to the blind spot or the spot with the weakest weapons).
get shields down (between 1 and 10%) try to get in front of the ships (kinda hard with M6's, since they move a lot, but with M7M's, its almost too easy) and dump ur marines (shift+c, 5, enter, enter).

the ship will fly into the marines, they'll hop on and if u keep the shields between 1 and 10%, ur got a new ship!


I capped my first few ships in the vidar. bunch of M6's, few paranid M7s, few M7M's.

only after i had a few M7M's i switched to pod's


anyway, good luck with it!

Bought a Tiger after my Vidar and haven't looked back yet.

The only thing I can't take out is the Khaak Destroyer,never got use to misslies, I'm just too cheap,but that might just be flashbacks from X3R.

If you buy a M7 then fill it with interchangeable weapons, for both your main and turrets. Shoot someting Capital with full Incendry Bomb Launchers coming out of every orifice (that they'll fit in) and it starts getting fun, or set up HEPT's for yourself and FAA's in the turrets and watch M6's and under just collapse. If they don't , ram 'em (also works with most M7's).

If you carry a few hundred extra volumes of weapons a decent M7 won't notice but you can fit the ship to the battle.


All I've worked out is don't buy the Cerburus,

out of the M7 range of ships you can only use the M7M class ships but then you would need missiles and boarding pods for that class of ships.

SpringBlossem! 360 speed, can use marines and does nicely at killing most capital ships. Takes some pratice to figure it out since it's not an easy ship to fly. THe high speed causes just as many problems as it solves.

Without a doubt the answer is to buy a Split M7 Tiger.

I bought one after my Vidar and I'm still flying it even thought I have 300 million credits to spend.

My loadout is on all turrets 2x FLak Artilliary Arrays, that gives pretty much all round cover against M5'2, M4'2 and M3's. The FAA's can even take down an M6.

For the front guns my ship is loaded out with Incendiary Bomb Launchers, 8 of them. These can be time consuming to get as the only factory is a pirate one which will need to be bribed if the NPC's haven't destroyed it already, in LooManckStrats Legacy.

The 8 IBL's will make short work of an enemy M6 destroying it in one or two volleys. They're roughly comparable to PPC weaponry found on M2 class ships.

I have taken down all class of capital ships using one of these including Khaak destroyers. I find Khaak destroyers less of a problem than groups of Xenon corvettes when using this ship.

The FAA's will make extremely short work of multiple Khaak clusters irrelevant of their size. The shields are strong enough to take a fair amount of punishment before collapsing. The ships speed and turning circle are also quite good.

As the ship description says, it really is built for war.
