I’ve tried to utilize the superior speed potential of frigates to make a frigate that can hit hard and keep moving fast enough to mitigate damage. So far my results have been poor. The one thing I haven’t tried yet is frigates with fast missile launchers, since they’ll have the range to stay out of most weapons fire.
i have some pretty fast frigs…
usually speed 70+ can make them pretty effective…
only in challenges tho…
so dont bother with fast attack frigs in singleplayer, usually doesnt work
have fun and welcome 2 GSB btw
Orders are key, including weapon selection and subsequent choice of firing ranges.
Use Keep Moving, of course.
Cautious also useful, but overuse can cause amusing chicken behavior.
