Avenger, in the current stage of the game.
EDIT: Cutlass was my intention to say. Avenger is not.
This is going to be a subjective and moving target so bear with a semi-long answer.
First as you said mentioned none of us have seen the final product and all ships and overall game play will be likely subjected to balancing and any number of changes.
There is not one best ship. Depending on the bounty and/or recovery operation it may take a single heavy fighter or a small task force to complete. I personally chose the Drake Cutlass due to its multi-use capabilities, I see it as a space jeep.
Some pro's and cons of the popular choices.
Built for boarding operations with no upgrades(pledge package)
Highly configurable both in upgrade slots and weapon hard points (12 upgrade slots)
May not be as durable as other ships
Not the fastest thing in space
Big honking space gun
Fast / High thrust to weight ratio (TR5 thruster)
Can carry cargo and prisoners
Less configurable (4 upgrade slots)
Balanced in speed & maneuverability
Moderately configurable (6 upgrade slots)
Moderate weapon capability
Pimped out space ride
Thanks for the info
I'd have to put my wager on the Cutlass, for this particular type of activity.
This guy has a pretty interesting take on the Cutlass design.
I'm actually debating on getting a Cutlass myself. I already have a Freelancer though, for exploration/mercantile. The Cutlass seems like a really cool ship the more I check up on it. I'm surprised more people don't have one. AllHell is the only person in the ship roster who currently has one.
I could see there being the possibility of re-outfitting this ship as a bomber. Also, now that I'm looking at it; Both the Cutlass and the Caterpillar are made by Drake, both with 12 upgrade options. So I wonder if the Cutlass couldn't also be used as a lighter variant of the Caterpillar.
Count me in
Im still trying to figure out why all the other post get stickied but mine?
what do you mean?
Look at Isis, cartel and legions posts. They are all stickied. No love for the bounty hunters
It is stickied
They thought maybe you would want to remain off the radar. =P
