The Spear of Lugh
March 15, 2015
I’ve spent most of my time in the Elite: Dangerous universe trading, space trucking valuable cargo on short efficient jumps, getting a feel for the engine and saving up enough credits… to buy a bigger ship and have the ability to haul more 😉
After the last 1.2 Wings update, and the last patch that has brought down the cost of battle focussed ships, I’ve decided to try more pew pew action. I’ve fitted out a Vulture and am participating in my second Combat Bond Community.
The Vulture space superiority fighter sacrifices hardpoint flexibility for maneuverability. Advanced manufacturing techniques have allowed the Vulture to integrate large hardpoints into its relatively small frame, offsetting the ship’s limited weapon count, but its nimble flight characteristics make it equally devastating against smaller targets. A limited cargo and passenger capability has not stopped it becoming a preferred personal transport for those who like to project a certain attitude in their dealings
Just cashed in 94k of bonds, but no tier reward… maybe I was fighting for the wrong side, nevermind it’s fun all the same 🙂
I’m far from being alone in Lugh, according to the traffic report 7,966 ships have passed through in the last 24 hours, and the most popular ship? Not surprising it’s the Vulture at 1868, followed by 1,425 Cobra’s.
Back to pew-pew’ing, fly safe CMDRS!
