      Default ATF & M7Ms

      Has anyone here actually captured an ATF capital ship with an M7M? I'm asking because my favourite Non-Boron ship is the Odin, and i want a Terran carrier (but the Tokyo is unballanced, with faster weapons generators then the Tyr) and, the Odin just looks plain awesome

      Well I've fairly easily captured an Ageir in my Hyperion, but its alot easier to cap a M7 than a M1/2.

      Personally i like this guide on capping, especially for boarding ops, as it tells you the needed skill of your marines for the op to be successful. Give it a read to give you an idea of what you'll need for capping an Odin.

      I had boarded an Odin with my M7M - Ares. Fly in the terran sectors and search for it. It could be that you will need a long time to find this ship. There are more Tyr, Aegir, and so on. With enough luck you will find it.

      If you are playing v2.0 you wont have a problems with the race rank. If you playing v2.1 you will loose a little bit rank from the terrans.

      Tactic:

      My tactic is to set the ATF to hostile. Then fire up upto 5 hammer. If the Odin starts his docking ships, destroy them with a lot of flails. Then fly upto 25-30 km in front of your targeting ship. Then a 180 spin. Now you have an advantage. The Odin will fly in direct way to you, like face to face^^.

      Now you have to calculate. The Odin have 5x2GJ shields. One hammer have a strength of 200,000. So:

      5 x 2000000MJ = 10,000,000MJ

      10,000,000MJ : 200,000 = 50 Hammer

      You need minimum 50 Hammer and 200 Flails. If you reach the 5% lineof shields, try it to reach the 1% line. Now you can fired up your boarding pods. Then a lot of Flails.

      When the Odin is boarded, set the ATF back to friendly asap and say everywhere sorry, cause the ATF will destroy your "new" ship.

      Thank you very much peoples. Your input is much appreciated.

      @Scorch: I love that guide too. First read about it here. Very useful guide, well detailed too. The author deserves a cookie

      @King of the World: To simplify the locating ship process, i bought a few rapiers at The Moon and sent them to my desired ship with the Follow... command. These M5s became markers, so i always new where my desired ships were headed.

      Oh, and i believe that Hammer Heavies do 300,000 damage...

      Oh, that could be possible, cause Im using the CombatMod from ulfius. Probably he set something in the setting of all rockets.
