My experience of doing RES between my fully kitted out Vulture and my mostly C class Asp is that there isn't a huge amount in it. The Vulture performs better and for much less cash than the current fitting on my Asp. I'm risking less flying the Vulture for slightly better results. I could A rate the Asp and get similar performance, but why risk the higher rebuy when the Vulture will still do the job?

For your money you can FULLY combat-upgrade it, plus A-grade thrusters/Pplant/distri/shield and have fun flying circles around enemies. Add chaff, KWS, SCB. With that ship you'll be able to rack up bounties and even if you loose a fight, rebuy cost is tiny.
Cobra is fun, but the shields are weaker than a Vipers.
Bytheway, Asp will never be as good for combat as a Vulture ... as with Cobra to Viper, the shields of Multipurpose are never as good as those of Combat ships. Even if you add shield boosters and high-class shields (like A6 on Asp that costs 16million creds!).
My path is to have one Multipurpose ship (trading, exploration, a bit of combat) that is now my Asp and one pure combat that now is the Viper. Working towards a Vulture, as soon as I got that beast I will sell my Viper ... or maybe keep it, for funsies

I have about 3 million in invested in my cobra where most of my mountings are at "B" level. I am looking to upgrade but the question is at what point of total cash is a good upgrade point. Vulture costs what 7 million? but at stock its barely equipped better than a eagle, large weapons are very expensive. So what do you think is the best point to upgrade?
