Ship Review - Monitor
A quick glace at the statistics is rather unpromising. The Monitor is at the small end of the large freighter range but is slower than everything apart from the Anaconda. Its manoeuvrability isn't up to much either; it's only one CF mark down on the Ghavial but seems far more sluggish. What is less obvious is that it's built to last. It has very strong shields, carries an impressive eight missiles (which is handy considering the poor manoeuvrability) and its lasers are powerful, even though the equipment is expensive. In a real world this would make it a good freighter for the more dangerous trade routes but most Elite players will find it dull.
