I’ve yet to fly one my own (nearly done with passengers, then I’ll pop over to Jameson Memorial to pick up a dedicated goid hunter build for now), but from what I’ve seen and heard, it handles way better than a Type 9, but it’s still very sluggish.
Distributor is an issue, though engineering can counteract this nearly entirely.
Jump range is pretty good for a combat ship.
Very, very tanky.
And apparently, it’s nearly impossible to overheat the damn thing.
