Speculation ahead....Given we now know the Scorpius has no cabin as originally thought, I can't see a reason to prefer it over a pair of Sabres, etc. I'd love to entertain opposing views. Why put two players in a ship they can't eat, sleep and poop in? What's the advantage?
A pair of Sabres would seem to me more durable, harder to hit, more shielding, offer stealth and twice the missile load. Same range, guns, number of players.
