Good Day fellow CMDRs,
I have recently unlocked the Imperial Courier, and while I initially wasn't inclined to it, have done some reading and see that it doesn't make a bad ship for BH work, as well as some Empire wetwork possibly (can shoot back at those NPCs interdicting me on Empire missions then as well). I am actually ranking with the Empire for the Cutter, plus they are one the "powers" that I am inclined to support.
Now I am primarily a trader with virtually no combat experience, except running away from it, so this would be my first foray into combat/BH. Guess you have to start somewhere.
Based on my research, I have put together the following build: https://eddp.co/u/fekz5F25
For fire groups, I figured the KWS in the first group, laser in the second, and MCs in the third. Logic behind that is scan, remove shield, remove hull... or something like that!
It is far below my budgeted cost of around 10mil cr, my initial build was just over 10million, I have tweaked it a bit primarly to get power usage below 100%. I do not have access to any Engineers yet, so engineering components is not an option for me at the moment. Not too far from meeting Elvira Martuuk I see, though.
Comments from all welcome, preferably constructive, but will take anything in its' stride. If this is not a viable idea, will just carry on in my current trade/exploration progression.
