It is ridiculously easy to stop a Farragut. The Primary Power Source is on the upper fuselage about two-thirds back from the nose. It's completely unprotected by armour or armament. I completely disabled two (or it might have been the same one twice - who knows?) by sitting a Vulture 200m above this point and pouring laser fire at it.
You can't destroy the ship, you don't get a bond payout.
It's an Ikea supplied illusion of power.
