Well, I love most of the ships in this awesome game, both aesthetically and efficiently. these are just my fav ships(not in any particular order):

1: Dominator Assault(has a *** ton of armor, good offensive and PD weapons as a whole, and I love the way it is designed, like a hardy old troop that doesn't rely too much on advanced technology, just raw strength)

2: Warthog Assault Wing( 3 of these tough fighters in one wing is pretty nice, good armor, decent speed, awesome maneuverability, and packs quite a punch, I also like the old tech style of the way they look.)

3:Wolf Assault( looks incredibly cool, has a nice mix of weapons, 2 annihilator rocket launchers, 3 IR pulse lasers, and 1 hardpoint pulse laser, I love the way the weapon layout makes it look.)

4:Tempest Attack(now this thing is just ridiculously good, 250 top speed, good flux capacity and shield efficiency, looks really cool, high damaging harpoon missiles are fun along with the support that it can provide with the Graviton beam, and it *** *** up with the pulse laser when it gets close)

5:Aurora Cruiser( looks really *** cool, 3 HIL's and has a really fast speed for its size, I love the support that it provides and its full shield coverage is really nice, along with the hurricane MIRV missiles, just an overall really good ship)

6: and finally the Astral Carrier( I think it's a bit too underrated because it doesn't have that much hull integrity and armor, but it looks really sweet, good PD weapons like a carrier should have, and the fact that it has 3 flight decks makes it all the better, sending in a bunch of fighters and then the Astral with some Destroyer escorts and Cruisers to engage in the battle, seeing the fighters just coming back and repairing and going back to *** *** up, so awesome)

I forgot the brawler. That thing is a beast.

Brawler is nice, I only found them to be just a bit too weak, even for a frigate. Also I agree with Rhyden, the Astral carrier is a bit underrated, the fighters wouldn't be able to do their jobs without it, and the 3 flight decks are indeed amazing. I wonder if there will be bigger carries?  :o

Well I have mostly been dueling frigates one on one, haha.

I doubt you'd find a carrier bigger than the astral. Maybe one that had an extra deck but less weapons?

Yeah, maybe just a complete carrier, sort of like the superfreighter cept with a lot more decks and only a couple pd lasers or something, would be cool, had like 8 flight decks or something haha.

Yea, I suppose they would be good for that. Ill give them another try.

I mean the way I see it, if an enemy ship larger than a frigate reaches your carrier you did something HORRIBLY wrong, so I wouldn't mind have five decks and almost no weapons.
