****Start Commanders Entry – Commander Brubacca****
Hello out there to anyone who is listening. Today I bring you an update and current happenings in system. During that last update I logged images of previous ships in which I traveled the galaxy in, and the brief adventures had. Since that log, many new things have happened and new ships have been obtained.
First up: The Ships.
Since my last update where I was currently flying a Hauler doing cargo missions, we have upgraded. I began this upgrade by selling my Hauler and purchasing a Type 6 vessel (Not pictured). I flew a lot of cargo missions, carrying Gold and other materials for community goals in Tutumu until I could afford my next ship which is the one and only Diamondback Scout. I had originally wanted to set this ship up for scouting new areas and mining operations but I still need to take the time to properly utilize the limpets system such as collecting and prospecting.
As I could not use this ship for mining at the time, I did what any CMDR would do and outfitted it for passenger travel. I purchased space or passengers to sit in and completed a few passenger missions. Once I got back to a system I was comfortable staying in, I placed the Diamondback into storage and purchased the wonderful Cobra Mk III. I look forward to outfitting this ship in the future for stealthy mission and reconnaissance.
The Cobra Mk III produced by Faulcon Delacy is classified as a all-purpose ship. While I did not particularly like the storage capability of this vessel, I did like that it had a total of four hard points and its maneuverability was amazing. In terms of weaponry, this ship consisted of two medium hard points and two small hard points. As I have never really messed around with combat or bounty hunting missions, I outfitted those slots with two medium burst lasers, and two small seeker missile bays, a standard docking computer, and other little upgrades to make her move with he best of them.
At this point, I started flying with Commander Franz, Panda, and Madhatter. We collected quiet a few bounties, had a lot of good laughs, and had our fair share of lessons learned. All in all it was a fun experience and I look forward to flying with those Commanders again. All in all, I really enjoyed the Cobra MkIII.
At present date, I have the Core Dynamics Vulture. I have purchased this ship and flew to a new station, but that is it. I look forward to flying more in this ship. My goal is to utilize this ship and the Diamondback to grind federal rank until I can purchase the Federal Assault Ship as well as the ASP Explorer. Next entry will have more information on the Vulture and my adventures with it! Until next time….
