Well, i fly a hawk every now and then. Usually its a great ship. Of course, then i just upgrade to a better ship once i get the money. I don´t like the cavalier. Looks but-ugly <img src=smilies/icon_smile_tongue.gif width=15 height=15 border=0 align=middle>

The hawk is one of the stronger LF´s, but if you´re into serious combat with one, its maneuverability, not firepower that counts, and that´s why the drake is a superior choice.

On my first time through the game, I got both. Cavalier is nice, but the legionairre is better in the same class/price range. The Hawk has better armour and power than the Drake (same guns, shield etc), but it´s less manuverable and it´s a fairly big target. The Barracuda is also better than the Hawk. So they are both decent enough, but the alternatives available at the same time are better.

Im in a clan that has owned bretonia since the start of its existance, and we´ve now started building up wings of cavaliers to police for cardi and such for RP purposes. I was actually quite amazed at how good they were at duelling, I say its not so much the manouverability of ships but the size. The LFs are MUCH smaller than VHFs if you have a look, and the cavalier is no exception, actually probably one of the smallest ones. And I resent the comments on how it looks lol. the fact that they can have 2 adv stunpulses 1 borroco (lvl 5 shield killer) and a catapult launcher (lvl5) means that it can pack quite a punch, especially to unsuspecting people that dont know cavaliers can get lvl 5 guns <img src=smilies/icon_smile_big.gif width=15 height=15 border=0 align=middle>

I agree; people underestimate the Cavalier. I found it to be a well-balanced ship during the early SP missions. Of course, I traded it in for a better ship down the road, but I think it´s a perfectly capable ship in the House systems. - If you do not strike back at him who hits you, there is no way for him to find out whether you also have hands.

I switched from a Cavalier to a Barracuda and was disappointed with the way it handled. Swapped it for a Drake as soon as I could.

I went for a Dagger... They´re pretty fun to play Chicken with. Cavalier´s just don´t appeal to me. I didn´t go with the hawk either, cause at that point i decided to go HF, with a Dragon. I did try a drake though, and they weren´t too bad. Officer! I swear to drunk I´m not God!

There is something to be said for looks. It applies for real life aerodynamics as well as in game, and that is, &quot;the better it looks, the better it flies&quot;. And, who can deny that the Dagger is one darn sexy ship? Also, it mounts a turret, which none of the other LF´s do. Fit it with a sheild buster and ripper mines an you´ll be good to go.

I like the Hawk ok, but if you´ve got enough money for it then you´ve got enough for a Barracuda - a fine ship IMHO. I may be wrong but I´m not convinced that the lighter Hawk is more agile than the Barracuda - they felt about the same to me. The two extra weapon mounts on the Barracuda come in handy as well. The Drake is certainly a fine ship as well - far more agile than either the Hawk or the Barracuda. If it´s agility you´re after than look no further than the Drake. If you´re thinking about the Hawk though the Barracuda is a better ship in the same equipment class for pretty much the same price. Thanks, Micah
