Well, guess that´s it. If RandomHits has one included, it must be from this oxp, because I haven´t installed the other oxp. It must be a non - Player ship then, because I haven´t found it for sale anywhere.

Btw. has anybody tried to fly a Tiger yet? I am looking for a good allrounder. Primarily I want to hunt pirates, but do some minor trading alongside......I didn´t like the Caddy -so money should´t be the problem ;)
I've flown a (somewhat modified, see below) Tiger with 1.76 a long time.
It's a very stable fighting platform (great for an old man like me) , and can take a beating.
NOTE : haven't tried the Tiger in 1.80 yet.

Main disadvantage is it's HUGE, so an easy target for enemies.

Modifications :
The MK I stats are the original ones, MK II is my modifed version.
Basically i reduced cargo space and increased recharge rate.

Tiger Mk II player

Mk I Mk II
max energy 500 512
recharge rate 4.5 6
max cargo 50 25
speed 500 500
max missiles 6 6
thrust 50 50

NPC

Mk I Mk II
max energy 500 512
recharge rate 4.5 6
max cargo 50 25
speed 500 500
thrust 50 50
missiles 6 6
bounty 74 94

If you wish to apply those changes, just edit shipdata.plist in the Config folder.
I bought the Tiger a few days ago, iron assed it and tried it in combat. Great ship. You can dodge the lasers of your opponents by heading directly toward them at full injector speed. The Tiger is so damm fast, that you are behind them in no time and then they´re down in seconds. :twisted: With shieldcyclers.oxp even a bulk of 4 or 5 ships does not bring my shields down to less than half energy (skilled npc is installed) :mrgreen:

So I really like that one, even her strange crescent shape and size (50t of cargo is just right for me). I only would like different textures, so I think I have to learn how to retexture a ship :wink:
