Stealth Bomber fun...

An impromptu free for all broke out last night at Planet 2. I'd been looking for an excuse to roll out my new Manticore, so I saddled up & off we went.

Not wanting to seem rude, I determined that I'd limit myself to 1 volley (1 EM, 1 Thermal, 1 Kinetic) so as to not pop any of the frigates. That 1 volley was almost too much a couple of times!

After a few minutes, another Uni Manticore showed up, so we ganged & started a series of drive by's on the larger ships.

From chat:

"Dee??? Where did you come from?"
"Ouch! Ouch!"
"Dee, where did you go?"


Just a few thoughts:

- Manticore is paper thin.

- Script nerf hurts. Can't really fit any kind of EW, so you need to be ready to leave the scene if you get targeted.

- A co-ordinated short squad of six of these would be _really_ nasty.

- If you are going to fly Cov-Ops, being able to fly Stealth Bombers is only a short step.
