Rollo's thoughts

The Sidewinder is a ship from another era. One of the older ships in the game it was designed in a time when missiles where a luxuary. Despite it's age the Sidewinder can still put up a fight against newer ships. The natural choice for someone who wants to make a career as a pirate.

Equipment Recommendations

  • Even if you don't have a lot of space you will need the 1MW beam laser. Remember that you don't need a cooling booster for this laser.
  • Unfortunately you wont be able to fit any shields but you will need a Naval ECM to survive. It might be good to train missile-dodging if you plan on staying in the Sidewinder
