Not sure what to get. I want to get something not more than $15 Milllion. I'm looking at Split Dragon/Heavy Dragon, Skiron and Heavy Nemesis. Could someone help me choose and suggest a load out? Big investment for me at the time.

Thanks!

I was aiming toward the Skiron. Not sure what to equip it with. Thinking PACs for turrets--not sure about the forward battery - HEPTs or CIGs maybe?

Why buy? Pirat

In all seriousness, if I had to buy I'd go with the Skiron. You can get one from OTAS in Legend's Home.

I'd use CIGs up front and either PRGs or EBCs (which I prefer) everywhere else

true enough @above post, but if you dont have the marines trained up yet (takes a long time) the skiron is still an excellent early choice and is worth the money. i loaded the turrets with pac for energy saving and the front with 6 hept and two ion disruptor (to capture fighters, which i capped a LOT of using this method). i had the 6 hept on weapon group 1 and the ID on weapon group two. alternatively a full loadout of hept still works wonders up until you get that m6 from terran missions i mentioned earlier ^^

I avoid ships that don't have a decent cargo hold, because I like to jump around a bit before having to fetch new energy cells. So Heavy Nemesis, Nemesis, Heavy Dragon is right out.

That said: The Skiron is a fine choice. It is somewhat lacking in the rudder department, but it will do as a starter.

Dragon with plasma burst generators up front.

Fast and absolutely deadly at close range.

But you can have that with any M3 and PBGs as well.

Use PRG in the Skiron's turrets, they're better than PAC. However, the Skiron is probably one of the least manoeuvrable M6s in the game, so be prepared for that--you won't be dogfighting in one!

I personally use the Terran springblossom as my M6, the ship is faster than most fighters and the ones that can catch up to it can barely make a dent. Also using (P)SSC for my main gunes take care of most ships up to the Q quite fast while fitting the turrets with (E)EMPC for missile defense.

What would be a better option for dogfighting?

Are the CIGs a good option at all for a skiron?

Also, now that I think about it, I would be willing to buy any of the more expensive m6s.
