That blue glow under-lighting the nose of the ship... Hnrgh.

Also that looks like an AMAZING complement to BRDY fleet comps, as they don't have any large ships to anchor fights around until you get to the Karkinos, which is not exactly something you can field multiples of without completely overkilling the enemy. I discount the Gondactylus because of the Ai's turbo derp handling of lopsided batterys.

Something for the next release: The Scorpion-class Destroyer.

It flies a lot like a huge Scarab, and features the powerful Stinger Drone, which essentially is a self-propelled, miniaturized Gale Cannon.
Oh awesome.

I mentioned before I felt the need for a Scarab-equivalent dessy, and it looks awesome to boot :D

very nice...though quite honestly i think the robberfly should be a type of fighter wing....since its staple to have corvettes be single or double wing fighter wings...otherwise it seems useless because why would i use that over the stronger fighters that CAN repair and dock themselves. If the corvette could dock i would definitely buy it but as of now its just a pile of tinfoil waste over the frigates which are the same price almost

I typically use Robberflies to stiffen point-capping fighter forces, actually. They're a good low-cost screening unit, and if you need to, you can install a shield generator on them.

EDIT: and now that I've had a chance to play with the new version, Dart SRMs turn Robberflies into fighter-mincing machines.

That's because in most mods Corvettes are large fighters, here the robberfly is a very small frigate.

I know it is but noone uses it...its kinda worthless...what this faction needs is a single ship corvette that can dock and refit...the powerhouse of the fighter/bomber wings....something expensive but would help a Carrierneer as the leader of the fighters. A buffed robberfly seems like it would perform just that role as this seems to be one of the few mods to have something like that....it would be nice to see

Nah, the Robberfly is a great ship if you outfit it and use it right. I find that a Light Needler and some hard-hitting weaponry make it a fantastic strike ship. Otherwise, it fills its intended role as an expendable skirmish ship perfectly fine.

Its also one of the best capture ships in game for chases.

I always keep 2 in fleet regardless of the fleet makeup.

With a technology character mount an LPG on it.

The Robberfly rules, it costs nothing and can be really effective. To state the obvious, not every ship in the game can be amazing, because then no ship would stand out.

Lmao, yes, the mod could truly prosper under your guidance.

A knockoff Desdinova is still a Desdinova, apparently. (not cool after you run out of missiles)

(might reduce the amount of missiles this thing can mount)

Spoiler
Rebel BRDY faction? Pirate knockoff? Not telling yet.
