Well, I've finally kitted out my Bellicose with 2xmissile launchers, 1xheavy missile launcher , 2x 650mm artillery and a 225mm vulcan. Yep, I know, mixed guns = bad news, but it is all I can salvage from loot at the moment.
I have also fitted a target painter (higher missile damage I believe), shield booster I and an afterburner to keep a distance from smaller rats. Finally, Overdrive II, inertial stab and ballistic control to give the cruiser some edge in maintaining distance from foes. Oh and a target tracking disruptor with range script to reduce their lockon range.
Again all gear robbed from my rat loot.
So if it fails, at least I gave the Bellicose a try and get my insurance back aswell.
First flight tonight after work (if I finish early).
