Finally figured out why I missing posts RSS feed must be marking them read.
Well Tor, if not for the fact that your correct about the Vulture Weapons and maneuverability, I would disagree with you.
Always difficulty hunting big ships with 3 Medium Hard Points no matter what you have on them. As said the Courier can adapt to many tasks even with some PA's and Rails it is still a little behind in the punishment department but lighter on the wallet. I have two one for CZONES and the other more speed.
The Vulture is always the RES Kings, for some reason I drifted away from her (still have one engineered) when I started doing Mass Kills in CZ with the FDL.
