Federal Assault Ship

Overview

Ship SizeHardpoints
Medium2L, 2M
GoodNot Good
Fast and very agile. Shields are mediocre, so try not to get hit.
When flown well you can orbit most ships, and they won’t touch you. Firepower is a tad weak, so combat encounters will take longer. 
Good convergence on the large and medium hardpoints on the bottom. “Unicorn horn” large hardpoint on top converges poorly with the others. 
The bottom hardpoints can be blocked by the hull. 
The Alliance Chieftain is a better version of this ship in almost every way. 
Jump range is poor.
