I bought a Fer-de-Lance a couple of months ago, engineered it to about 80% completion, and never used it. I literally never flew it once.
I recently decided to dust it off, finish engineering the ship, slap some weapons on it, and test it out. I built it to be used either in PvE or PvP, depending on the weapon loadout. So far, I really like it. It feels like it doesn't hit quite as hard as my Chieftain, but I really enjoy the way it flies.
Anyway, take a look at my build and tell me what you think. I would appreciate any suggestions, but everything on the core ship is already G5. The weapons are also G5, but I view the ship as a platform onto which weapons are mounted, so the weapon loadout is interchangeable depending on the task at hand.
EDIT: I edited my original build to remove the SCA module. I hadn't seen that I left it installed. Also have my modules a bit more reinforcement
