How utterly awesome is the Clipper????


I pledged to Denton Patreus just before the deadline yesterday and spent several hours earning 90 credits delivering military arms

But that's for chumps!

I just jumped into a military incursion and got 300 credits in about 20 minutes.

By my calculations about 8 or 9 hours of that will put me at rank 5 next week! (50 million credit paycheck)

AND - it was the best experience I have had in ED. Non-stop action.



The only downsides to the clipper are it's a bit low on energy and the fuel tank is pitifully small.

Don't hear many call the clipper awesome theses days. It has terrible hardpoint locations and pretty crap maneuverability.

Still good for trading, pirating, tanking, and intercepting.

Vertical/lateral thrusters are terrible and it does have widely placed hardpoints, but speed counts for a lot.

That's bonkers - the manouverability is amazing for such a big ship.

Hardpoints are a bit dodgy on the nacelles - but gimballed class 3 beams are great. PAs in the middle do fantastic damage singly to smaller ships or in twos to pythons and above.

I just did another 290 points. I did a video, it's long but I am staying out of reach of most stuff and when things go wrong (because my combat skill are weak) you just boost away at 430m/s

It will be in 1440p when google finish processing

Maneuverability is ok on pitch and roll (which will work most of the time) but yaw and lateral/vertical thrust sucks. Especially lateral. From experience that thing is near impossible to stop once it's going sideways.

That said I still like to fly them.

Its so good a decent pilot in a Cobra can take it out. Lol. Clipper is the easiest of the bigger ships to take out in even a little cobra.

I have done it. Its not that hard. Just stay low and behind. I only have to bug out of the pilot is smart enough to hit and run. Get in a turning fight, you are mine.

I don't think the Clipper is a bad ship by any means, but I don't think it does as well as it used to when compared to it's peers. I used to pack 2x class 3 SCBs on mine, and it made up for it's lackluster shielding, now I can't do that.

The new Federal ships are absolutely superior at combat than the Clipper is, leaving it in a weird place. At it's best, it's a great PvE ship that can do a bit of everything (my favorite type of ship). At it's worst, it's a fast but not so agile combat ship that has awful hardpoint placement. That being said, once my trade-conda is finished, I'm going to rebuy the Clipper because I really did enjoy my time in the ship.

I wonder if FDev will do a balance pass on it? It could surely benefit from a little better pitch and shield strength. Wouldn't outshine the fed ships in it's class, but it would stand up a little better. Speaking of balance passes, I wonder what they'll do with the Cutter once the Panther comes out? Surely the Panther will be the superior trade ship.

A decent pilot can take anything out, in anything else. I've seen videos of Vipers annihilating ships much larger and more expensive ships.

How do you think the Clipper could be improved to serve more of a PvP purpose, and make it less of a PvE ship? Short of moving hardpoints, I'm not sure what would be best.
