If you can, REC and have a play in them. If they are not on the REC list borrow one in the PU, Fly Before You Buy bro.

Yeah as it's alpha things can always change, but there is nothing like first-hand experience.

Yeah, looks like Harby is my better option.

I'm not an amazing fighter pilot, but I do have a lot of fun trying. I just want something tanky (because I'm not a good fighter pilot hehe) that can dish out good damage. The torpedoes on the Harb are also small enough to be used against smaller ships easily...

Yes, and you can morph it into a Sentinel, and learn all the crazy gameplay that goes with EM warfare. A Sentinel, a couple Harbingers and three Hoplites is going to be a devastating combination for boarding big prize targets. Harbingers rock.
Or you can take the $$ value of those ships and turn up in a Hammerhead and a Polaris and I guarantee that will be much more fun!! Let the boom booms commence!!!

Have flown all of these but the Eclipse (used to own a vanguard and bucc, melted them when shiny new concepts came out but always missed them).

Why is everybody saying go to Warden ;-;

I don't have the Warden CCU, I just meant it would be the loaner for the Harby hehe
Talk to some people about getting to a Warden. @Elmy, @DirectorGunner, maybe even @Stevetank . I have a Warden to Harbinger CCU you can buy after that.
I also have a shit ton of 0 dollar CCUs to Warden, but I can't trade them, so we'd have to do a deal where you either pay me the value or trade me the value and I do the upgrading for you then trade it back. It's doable, but it may be easier for you to just find a Warden CCU from someone else.

Lemme know your thoughts.

I think these both pair well with a Harbinger.


Which is why I have all three.

Yes. You put your finger right on why I am considering the Polaris. It will not be as fast as a wing of Vanguard, and doesn't hold the troops of three Hoplites, but it costs HALF as much as a wing of six Vanguard, so it is hard to say the Vanguard is the better choice. I think though, any boarding has to be a group effort, and given this, buying a single Vanguard so you can join such a group is in many ways better than buying a Polaris. I go back and forth on this all the time since I want the pool table.

Once we find out just how fast the Polaris is, you could have a great argument to buy a pair of Polaris over six Vanguard. That would be a devastating duo. My bet is the Polaris is faster than the Void Bombers, but we'll see. Certainly the Vanduul spinal mounts will be easier to evade than S10 torps.

I think people are going to be disappointed with the Hammerhead when they see how fragile it is. Corvettes are fragile enough. Gunboats can never take a hit. I'd bet a single Gladiator can take out a Hammerhead.
