I'd definitely pick a vulture over a python any day for pure combat.
And the Vulture is about 120 million less.
And the yaw on the Python is now just plain gag-bysmal.
It's still worse than a conda or a t9 even.
It is no longer the god of all combat it used to be, but then again the python used to be brilliant as well before engineers.
Before engineers and the great big nerfing of things you could take on any group of npc's in a c rated vulture and expect to win, now you might have to pass on that wing of conda's, and maybe even that higher tiered conda as well, unless you have engineering mods out the wazooo.
If you do loose shields in a Vulture now you will probably loose the canopy pretty quick.
But if you can get some light engineering, particularily up the thermal resists on shields they can take a lot more damage.
