How much is a python by the way?

Think mine is just around 115mil at this point but I have just put another 17mil in the powerplant.

And those 3 C3 gimballed beam lasers are almost 3 mil each.

Can get very far with just c or b class gear and pulses (had to swap after yesterday)

Coriolis tallies my fit to 133mil, but I have gotten quite a bit of the ship and modules discounted, since that also effrcts rebuy its worth going a few 100ly for.

As far as I can tell that's the exact fit I had when we went res'ing last night and I am starting to like those beam lasers, even though I get hotter using those over time than if I crashed at a sun..
My lifesupport module was starting to see damage because of it hehe.

Rule 1: Pillage. Then burn.
Rule 2: No such thing as overkill, as long as there are reloads.

Just mentioning that you can put 64t bins in those c6 slots , would almost double your carrying capacity.

Hi there,

I love this piece of machinery!

I have now somewhat D-class Trading Python with 216t cargo + docking computer. 2 x Class 3 Gimballed burst on board and usual chaff launcher, kill warrant scanner and the heat sink. With this loadout I can easily take 6 rounds / hour with 750K profit/round. There's plenty of juicy outpost to outpost loops and with docking computer the money grinding is somewhat pleasant :-)

OOooo. I'm curious where that last 47 million or so comes from? You runnin' fancy turrets or 10mil+ weaponry? Or expensive scoops? The priciest loadout I ever had on Red was only about 200mil. So I'm curious! :D

I'll see if I can recreate it from memory - I've been playing in a Conda for a few weeks.

I think Military composite is involved somewhere :)

Hmmm.. not sure that's quite right, but 245 million. 1 beam turret is 18 mill of course..

I only power one cell bank at a time, so I've got loads of spare power to change things about, or run more beam turrets if I wanted to.
