The ships:
NOTICE, none of these ships are mine. They come from the HELMET collection in the sprite dump.
http://fractalsoftworks.com/forum/index.php?topic=12896.0

Fighters
Orisis:
A very simple fighter made from fragments of asteroids. It is only slightly worse than a talon.


Frigates
Boulder:
The boulder is a Frigate designed by pirates as a very cheap and easy way to have a simple ship used for basic missile suppression and is noted for being made out of random asteroids that float around the universe.

Stoner:
The Stoner is a basic Frigate artillery platform built by mashing some asteroids and floating satellite pieces together. It rarely works the way pirates expect it to.

Havel:
The Havel is what happens when pirates decide that there needs to be more firepower coming from their captured asteroids. The Havel is the most powerful of the frigate sized asteroidships and should not be underestimated.


Destroyers
Vesta:
The Vesta is an artillery platform made by pirates by taking larger asteroids out of asteroid belts throughout the sector. These ships are very well suited for combat despite being out of asteroids.

Tholen:
Seeing the need for better firing arcs for their asteroid destroyers the pirates created the Tholen to better deal with enemy missile attacks. These ships are usually found backing up other ships but do not have the firepower to take on most ships of it's size very well.

Galileo:
The Galileo is a support vessel the pirates made after deciding that the stoner wasn't good enough and created a destroyer version of the same concept. This ship has the potential to be a formidable ship with the right load-out and captain but rarely ever is.

Cruisers
Rock:
The Rock is a Light Cruiser created by the pirates for simple suppression of enemy ships. It barely counts as a cruiser as nearly every non civilian cruiser will almost always beat it in combat.

Cerus:
As the pirates continue to learn about construction with asteroids it was only time before they made a proper combat capable Cruiser. The Cerus is(aside from the Pebble) the most powerful of the asteroidships and should be considered an actual threat not much different than a Dominator but with much less armour as it mostly made from asteroid materials.

Clanker:
The Clanker is a raiding Cruiser built with speed and hit and run tactics in mind. It may not have the straight up firepower that the Cerus has but don't let that deceive you into thinking this ship will be an easier fight.

Capital ships
Pebble:
The Pebble is the ultimate end all of ship construction using asteroids and as well as being made from them this ship is also known to have a shield created from a blueprint of the Paragon that was taken during a daring raid on the Port Tse Franchise Station #3 held by the Tri-Tachyon. This ship is easily one of the most powerful ships the pirates have access to.

Looks like an interesting mod.  Do you plan to make them a separate faction eventually? 

Since the ships are partly rock I was expecting them to be tough but slow.   Your three cruisers are as fast or faster than the falcon, but have way more hitpoints.  Maybe slow them down some?  The destroyers are kind of fast too.

These ships are just a ship pack. I have no plans to turn them into a faction.

a bit of feedback,the pebble class, maybe you need change their behaviour, they're act so defensesively, even with aggressive officer, they're keep their distance in a fight it's almost impossible to take a harmless station with them, maybe if you make them more like legion or onslaught in their ship data to be more 'standoff' it's going to be more usefull than it's right now  :D

cheers  ;)

also the ship tag kinda wrong, they're labeled as low_tech not low tech so it's become it's own type of ship.

Excellent ship pack, quite like the asteroid theme when playing a low-mid tech path. Going to try starting up a pirate path character and see how well a mostly asteroid fleet will work out in the campaign.
