Ship Review - Fer-de-Lance

A ship with a fearsome reputation. As a pure combat vessel it is more than adequate, despite its surprisingly poor manoeuvrability. The lasers are very powerful, but equipment is expensive. However, most Elite-A players will be out to make money as well as improve their rating, and the lack of cargo space restricts this. It is good for special deliveries, though (see the Moray section for more information). It would be a good ship for missions, but you will probably have completed both a long time ago by the time you can afford this ship. Three missiles is surprisingly few.
