      hammerhead Vs. xenon J. (or K)

      how to kill in a single strafe.

      using no missiles at all. you want about 6 appc\'s up front the rest of the weapon slots arent needed for this run, fiting 4 bhepts to the front turret with \'attack my target\' may help due to the hammerheads main gun aiming issues. the rest is fairly simple, swing behind the J and travel at about 110ms at 4.3km start firing, once your energy has been drained speed up to 134ms (max speed) and just before hitting the J bank away so you just rub it with a wing.

      Boom.

      a J killed with you losing about 1/5 of your shields. a few minutes later when everything is recharged you good to go again without spending a single penny restocking. if any fire does come your way just strafe drive out of the way.

      Q\'s are harder to kill.

      normaly you will only need to do this in XI missions where it would be helpful to have a set of aflaks on up and down turrets and a couiple of pacs on the rear set to missile defence. this may mean you have less energy to use in the main J run and a 1/4 of you shields may be lost in the impact on the J. as long as your total shields are higher then whats left of his you should be ok.

      this tactic doesnt work to well against pirate carracks as they have a better turret set-up and you will be coated in hept if you get too close.

      Certainly an interesting tactic, but I don\'t think anyone hasn\'t tried that who\'s flown the Levi. >

      i would have thought that levi\'s weapons would have took the K out by the time you have actualy got near it.

      How you are gonna get the K in the first place....ok I get it, its possible, but still...why is beyond me.
      The revamped Leviathan won\'t make that K\'s job easy tho.

      hmm, not much of tactic more of an exploit but here goes anyway-

      so youve got that big capital ship you have always wanted, glistening with a pile of GJ shields (or more). but whats that my friend youve just had your shields knocked low and dont want to wait the three hours it takes to recharge? as long as you have a ship onboard or a ship at a friendly station your ok. dock at that station, transfer your shields to the docked ship, then transfer them back again....

      bingo fully recharged shields instantly.

      particualrly useful for XI missions in getsu fune, but can be done easily anywhere if you have a jumpdrive that can take you to a nearby equip/shipyard.

      took a total of 2.3 minutes to recharge my pythons shields from 12% to 100%, then straight back into action taking over a xenon sector.

      my crew were trained by space monkeys....
