      Cool My Lucky Day

      Yesterday, after trained the only 5 marines to 3~4 stars, I packed them in the heavy dragon and went to a Hyperion capture run. Naturally it is not a good idea to hunt one in Paranid sectors. So I started in the pirate sector - Moo-Keys Revenge - above Cardinals Domain. When jump in, instead of any lonely Hyperion, two M7s revealed on the sensor - Agamemnon vs. Carrack - with few escorts (maybe killed already). I'm "Poisoned Paranid" and must go to help. When arrival at battlefield, Carrack was already dusts and left me a 100% hull, ~0% shield naked Agamemnon . I made a scan and found no evidence for any marines or inner defense . Who can resist such a fatal tempt !? Not me. I sent my marines in no time and run away.

      After marines entered the ship, I made a save. First time, got only a totally empty Agamemnon so I must reload. After several reloads, I finally got my luck. Here are the loads left:

      12 x IBL (all installed in turrents)
      4 x FAA (in freight)
      5 x ISR (3 installed in main and 2 in freight)
      1 x 200 MJ

      Can anyone ask for more ???!!!

      Now its my personal ship after rearmed with 6x1GJ and 3 more ISR in main slots together with HEPT, PBE, PAC managed by MARS. The only shortage is the cargo space, 3600 is definitely not enough. considering replace 4xIBL with another 4xFAA for some space. 8xIBL can already screw everything in universe into dusts...

      How does the Agam handle?

      That's a rare occasion. Never managed to get so much weapons on a boarded ship. Keep the precious, it's one of the most imbalanced ships

      For your cargo space problem, with an Agamemnon you don't need MARS anymore. The key to eternal destruction are PSGs. Arm your Agememnon with 8 PSGs to the bridge weapons, 4 IBLs to the front turret, FAAs to the sied turrets and rear turret PSGs again. This is monstrous damage output. Set the front turret to "attack my target" and the rest to "destroy everything". The front turret, combined with the agility and the speed of the Agamemnon is deadly. The range for PSGs is misleading. PSGs have a range of 2.4 km... so if you get close to an enemy cap, it's doomed. And even better, your 8 front PSGs will handle 90% of the escort also... instantly. If you're forced to fight in race sectors, turn off the rear turret and keep your finger off the bridge weapon trigger
      The only downside is that Gazz set the camera point between the colored guns UNDER! the nose of the ship. I hate this camera view, because it limits the view.
      The only ship with more destructive potential is the Boron Ray (thanks to Gazz again )

      Hi, Galder, thanks for the suggestion. I can really image what a beast it will be with your loads. The only problem is my PC. 8xPSG instantly change my PC from Usain Bolt to an old lady I always prefer all weapons with smaller and speedy bullets like PBE.

      Don't you think it is quite cool just like the FP viewer from an ATLAS in Mechwarrior...

      Thanks buddy. I got the feeling just like first time touched Hyperion in X3:R. Haven't tried out other M7s, could be similar impressive I guess.
