That said, I think the largest reason you're seeing some jaded opinions regarding those ships is functionally they're overkill. I've become pretty good at piloting my FDL and having a lot more fun farming RES than the Vulture. While the Vulture probably kills quicker the spawn rate does limit what you can get, and the FDL is more capable of handling incoming fire. When I flew the Vulture if the local pirates were hostile it wouldn't take much to overwhelm the ship, where as the FDL can tank the damage a lot better (double the shield strength).
I agree more ships will help this, but unless you add more content you're just replacing the flavor of the month with something different instead of giving people reasons to branch out. The other problem is say they do add a ship between the FDL/Python and the Vulture, what can they do to improve the ship? The Vulture is admittedly already nearly perfect for RES farming, you could argue that was the intent when they designed it since it fits so well. There are only really two options here, make it unique and quirky which they've done with the FDL and as pointed out netted mixed opinions, or make it better than/nerf the Vulture.

Funny that you should mention the Type-7 because that is what I was going to bring up. If you can find a nice trade location with a 7-10 min round trip with an 1800 credit per ton total profit I would probably go that rout. If you can meet those conditions at 216 tons the Type-7 will bring in between 2.3 and 3.3 mill an hour. That is unless you think you make more than that in a RES session.
