This is a series of ships I call "Raider" ships :)
I started with the striker and tried to keep that style through the rest of the ships.
So, there is a small strike ship, a small bomber (very strong offensively!), a missle corvette, and frigate. I basically make these classifications based on cpu usage, similar to my Alliance Ships in my last post.
With the frigate, originally it had shields and guns out on "wings" like the other ships. Each wing had a shield and 3 guns and used a lot of TX cubes (the new Compact Cubes) for added strength. However, I found that the entire wing was getting shot off pretty easily in battles, so I ditched the wing and TX cubes and used the extra cpu to add another shield. Since it's not really a fighter, but more of a capital ship, I thought ditching the wings kind of made sense anyway.
