I currently have the following ships:
- Vulture (dedicated combat ship)
- Type 6 (dedicated trader)
- Cobra (all-rounder, potential smuggler and/or miner)
I'm seriously considering buying an Asp, but I can't decide whether to have it replace one of those vessels (okay, not the Vulture) or in addition to them, or whether it would be a waste of creds. At some point I would like to try exploration, but that could be in a few months to a year. So, my questions are:
- How does the Asp fair as a trading vessel?
- How does the Asp do in combat?
- Is it useful for smuggling or mining?
- How expensive is it to run?
My funds are currently at roughly 23,000,000 Cr, so I can afford to upgrade it a little upon purchase but not much - however I may be trading in either the Type 6 or possibly the Cobra when I buy it to lessen the blow. Thoughts? Comments?
