Ship Review - Boa Class Cruiser

[Boa Class Cruiser]

The second largest ship you can buy, and overall probably the most impressive freighter. Its speed and manoeuvrability may not be a patch on a small fighter but on a large cargo vessel they are excellent, especially when compared to the Boa's predecessor, the Python. It also carries an adequate missile rack and has a good jump range, which help make up for only being able to carry front and rear lasers.

Recommended equipment:
Everything. The ship doesn't necessarily need it, but space is not an issue here, and neither is money - you'll soon be able to afford whatever you want, even though it's not the cheapest ship to equip.
