Loneshade's Ship Guide

Hello fellow Citizens, welcome to my personal ship guide!

Last Update: Aug 2nd, 2019: F8C Lightning added; Reviewed & Updated Several Sections, Reviewed & Updated links. (Note: I'm currently also re-adding bannera for better readability, ETA to complete this weekend..)


New players and veterans alike tend to ask me ‘what is the right ship for me, what should I buy’? Its easy to get lost in the wealth of choices RSI provides, especially since based on your skill level, your hardware and gear, your preference in game style, and even your aesthetic preferences, the right ship for two different people may vary greatly. So while there’s no generic answer to this question, this guide aims to make your decision easier, providing a quick and easy overview on what choices are available to you and by providing all any links you can possibly need, to find more detailed information and to support your decision!
That said, note that I now also have a similar Vehicle Guide available!

If you’re looking for a more intrinsic and personal recommendation, find me on Star-Hangar’s discord live chat, where we can gladly discuss details to help you find out what really fits you best, as well as other frequently asked aspects such as whether or not to go for ships with LTI (Life Time Insurance).


As a note to veterans, its a good idea to search this page before buying a ship you’re potentially interested in, as you can quickly find the links to what alternatives are worth investigating, before making your choice. Have fun and see you in the ‘verse! 

 

New Citizens – check this out first!

If you’re new to Star Citizen, remember to check this out first:

1) Refferal Program:
Before you enlist a Star Citizen Account with RSI… Star-Hangar is sponsoring new players with its own referral program. Just check the “Star Citizen Account” in the FAQ or ask their staff in Discord Live Chat about it!

2) Game Package:
If you don’t have a game package yet, remember that you can start with any cheap pack, but you may just want to make sure it also includes the Squadron 42 single player campaign. Buying this from RSI has become expensive, but Star-Hangar has cheaper options available: Starter Packages

Cargo Transportation

‘Small’ Cargo Ships

Ships single-purposed to cargo transportation. Thanks to their small size, they can traverse small jump points, allowing for shorter routes when time is money. They are also useful as entry-level ships for traders with a limited budget and small crew.

These models will be of interest to you:

  1. Freelancer: Armored Transport
    Related: Search & BuySpecs FreelancerCommercial;
  2. Hull A
    Related: Search & BuySpecs Hull A;
  3. Reliant Kore Hauler
    Related: Search & BuySpecs Reliant KoreCommercial;
  4. Cutlass Black: Fighter/Transport hybrid

All of these are transportation focused ships, assuming a typical crew of 2. The Cutlass is an exception, as that is built with the capability to hold itself in a fight. Alternate options worth checking out are:

  1. Aurora CL: Increased Capacity
    Related: Search & BuySpecs Aurora CLCommercial;
  2. Argo MPUV Cargo: Tiny Utility Cargo ship that can load/unload bigger vessels
    Related: Search & BuySpecs MPUV CargoCommercial;

These ships are well fit for new and independent traders alike.

 

‘Medium’ Cargo Ships

Versatile Cargo ships with significant capacity, they still retain the capability to act independently. These ships offer a good balance of risk vs. reward for small crews of typically 2-4 people.

These ships will be of interest you:

  1. Constellation Andromeda
    Related: Search & BuySpecs AndromedaLaunch Party;
  2. Constellation Taurus: Increased Capacity

    Related: Search & BuySpecs Corsair;
  2. Retaliator Base (with Forward & Aft Cargo Modules): Retrofit Military Ship
    Related: Search & BuyBuy ModulesSpecs Retaliator Base;

These ships are good to make money off trading. Andromeda and Retaliator may be good choices for more risky trade missions.

 

‘Large’ Cargo Ships

Costly high-capacity ships that are vulnerable on their own. They have increased crew requirements of typically at least 4 crew and operations need to be well planned.
Typical ships of this class are:

  1. Caterpillar
    Related: Search & BuySpecs Caterpillar;
  2. Caterpillar Pirate Edition
    Related: Search & BuySpecs Caterpillar Pirate;
  3. Hull B

It is recommended to never operate any of these ships alone and/or without military escort.

 

‘Huge’ Cargo Ships

Typical choices include:

  1. Merchantman: Alien Banu Cargo Ship
    Related: Search & BuySpecs Merchantman;
  2. Hull C
    Related: Search & BuySpecs Hull C;

It is recommended to never operate any of these ships alone and/or without military escort.

 

‘Super-Sized’ Cargo Ships

Where capacity is all that matters… these ships go beyond what’s normally thought possible. Loading but one of these ships may drain the funds of a moderately sized guild – you’d better make sure not to lose that cargo!

    Related: Search & BuySpecs Hull D;
  2. Hull E 10 times the capacity of a huge transport!
    Related: Search & BuySpecs Hull E;

  6. Razor

  3. Herald: Info Runner
    Related: Search & BuySpecs Herald;
  4. 85x; Small Luxury Taxi
    Related: Search & BuySpecs 85xSpotlight;

You may find that not every racer is equally suited for each race track.

Bounty Hunting Banner

Bounty Hunters

For earning money as a bounty hunter, you need the capability to bring your victims home alive. These ships provide the required holding cells:

  1. Avenger Stalker: Allrounder Police Variant
    Related: Search & BuySpecs Avenger StalkerLaunch Party;
  2. Cutlass Blue: Police Variant Fighter/Transport
    Related: Search & BuySpecs Cutlass Blue;
  3. Hawk: Light fighter with single prison storage
    Related: Search & BuySpecs HawkCommercial;

Safe for capital warships like the Idris, that typically provide some holding cells too, there’s no alternate options here, safe to transport your ‘passengers’ without security - in which case, the ships in the All-Rounder category might also be a good fit for you. 

Space Bikes Banner

Space Bikes

This category includes small, typically open canopy snub fighters, that are also capable of levitation land travel.

  1. Dragonfly Yellowjacket: Planet based bike capable of space travel
    Related: Search & BuySpecs Dragonfly YellowjacketCommercial;
  2. Dragonfly Black: Planet based bike capable of space travel
    Related: Search & BuySpecs Dragonfly BlackCommercial;
  3. Nox: Planet based racing bike capable of space travel

    Related: Search & BuySpecs X1 Velocity;
  7. X1 Force: Planet based combat bike capable of space travel
    Related: Search & BuySpecs X1 Force;

While preferable used as land vehicles and barely fit to space combat, they still find popular use on transport ships for combat duty, since they easily fit into most cargo bays and can be used as both, an additional defense craft and for planet-based operations.

 

Snub Fighters

Most of these ships are just racers with guns tagged to them whose purpose is to irritate and distract your enemies. They are typically used in conjunction with larger craft, allowing them to escape if attacked.

  1. 85x
    Related: Search & BuySpecs 85xSpotlight;
  2. M50
    Related: Search & BuySpecs M50SpotlightCommercial;
  3. P-52 Merlin
    Related: Search & BuySpecs P-52 Merlin;
  4. P-72 Archimedes
    Related: Search & BuySpecs P-72 Archimedes;

These ships are meant as interceptors and escort – you’ll rather not want to use them for dogfights on their own. Alternatively also check out these ships:

 

Light Fighters

Light fighters are fairly cheap, but built to kill. Utilizing solid firepower, combined with high speed and maneuverability, these ships can be deadly even to larger enemies. However, lacking heavy armor and shields also makes them vulnerable to hostile fire.

  1. Arrow 
    Related: Search & BuySpecs ArrowCommercial;
  2. Gladius
    Related: Search & BuySpecs GladiusLaunch Party;
  3. Gladius Valiant: Improved Combat Variant
    Related: Search & BuySpecs Gladius Valiant;
  4. Hawk: Light fighter with single prison storage

    Related: Search & BuySpecs BladeCommercial;
  8. Kharthu-Al: Alien Xi’An Scout
    Related: Search & BuySpecs Kharthu-Al; Spotlight;

The fighters above were built for their task. Additionally, the hybrid fighters below fill a similar role:

  1. Mustang Delta: Enhanced Starter Ship with additional Weapons and Armor
    Related: Search & BuySpecs Mustang DeltaCommercial;
  2. Aurora LN: Enhanced Starter, Budget ship with additional Weapons
    Related: Search & BuySpecs Aurora LNCommercial;
  3. 300-Series 325a: Allrounder with Combat Focus
    Related: Search & BuySpecs 325aLaunch Party;
  4. 300 Series 350R Well armed Racer
    Related: Search & BuySpecs 350R;
  5. Avenger Renegade: Allrounder with Combat Focus
    Related: Search & BuySpecs Avenger Titan;

Light fighters are best used by good pilots. Superior speed and agility allow the pilot to control and dominate the engagement, however these fighters are unforgiving: lacking heavy shields and armor, even the slightest mistake in combat may proof fatal.

 

Medium Fighters

High Firepower, decently maneuverable, and extremely deadly – medium fighters are your front line troopers. While fairly expensive, these state-of-the-art fighters are currently dominating the Arena:

  1. F8C Lightning: Hightech Medium Fighter
    Related: Contact us to Buy; Launch Party;
  2. Hornet F7C-M Heartseeker: Dual-Seated Medium Fighter, improved weaponry
    Related: Search & BuySpecs Super Hornet

  9. San’tok.Yāi: Alien Xian Medium Fighter

Also of these class and capable:

  1. Hornet F7C-S Ghost: Stealth Fighter
    Related: Search & BuySpecs Hornet Ghost;
  2. Hurricane:
    Related: Search & BuySpecs HurricaneCommercial;

As opposed to Light Fighters, medium fighters are a little more forgiving to mistakes thanks to armor and/or shields provided. While not as nimble, these ships typically make up the main body of a fighting force.

 

Heavy Fighters

Heavily armed multi-crew ships, capable of dealing devastating damage against other fighters and medium sized ships alike. Don’t expect them to be superior to other fighter classes – but they can take a beating while they take out attackers with their own guns, turrets and missiles.

  1. Vanguard Warden:
    Related: Search & Buy; Buy ModulesSpecs Vanguard Warden;
  2. Defender: Alien Banu Heavy Fighter
    Related: Search & BuySpecs Defender;

Also check these ships, they can work well in this role too:

  1. Cutlass Black: Fighter/Transport hybrid
    Related: Search & BuySpecs Cutlass BlackCommercial;
  2. Cutlass Blue: Police Variant Fighter/Transport
    Related: Search & BuySpecs Cutlass Blue;
  3. Vanguard Harbinger: Fighter with Bomber Module
    Related: Search & BuyBuy ModulesSpecs Harbinger;

Heavy fighters are probably less ideal for dogfights as they aren’t very nimble, so you’ll mostly find them where you expect heavy and/or chaotic incoming fire, or against larger craft.

 

Bombers

If you need to break targets that heavy fighters can’t, bringing some torpedoes might be a wise choice. Check out these options:

  1. Gladiator: Carrier-based Light Bomber
    Related: Search & BuySpecs Gladiator;
  2. Eclipse: Heavy Stealth Bomber
    Related: Search & Buy; Specs Eclipse; Commercial;
  3. Retaliator Bomber: Heavy Long Range Bomber
    Related: Search & Buy; Buy ModulesSpecs RetaliatorSpotlightLaunch Party;

Alternatively you may want to take a look at these ships too:

  1. Vanguard Harbinger: Heavy Fighter with Small Torpedoes
    Related: Search & Buy; Buy ModulesSpecs Vanguard Harbinger;
  2. Freelancer MIS: Missile Boat, loads of missiles but no torpedoes
    Related: Search & BuySpecs Freelancer Mis;
  3. Hercules A2 military Gunship capable of massive planetary bombardment
    Related: Search & BuySpecs Hercules A2;

Most Bombers can handle themselves well enough in a fight. Since they’re prime targets for fighters though, you probably want to bring an escort.

Capital Warships Banner

Warships

Warships offer massive firepower yet they need large crews to operate. Warships are often used as flagships for smaller battle units, for patrol duty or as escorts for large convoys or capital ships.

  1. Polaris Capital Ship Class, Militia Torpedo Corvette
    Related: Contact us to BuySpecs Polaris;
  2. Hammerhead Corvette-Sized Military Gunboat
    Related: Search & BuySpecs Hammerhead;

The ships below are also well large, well armed ships that may interest you – though designed with different roles in mind, hence they don't quite fit the ‘warship’ term:

  1. 890 Jump: Corvette-Sized Luxury Yacht
    Related: Search & BuySpecs 890 Jump;

Capital Ships

These characteristics define a capital ship: if the capital ships are beaten, the navy is beaten. But if the rest of the navy is beaten, the capital ships can still operate. Another characteristic that defines capital ships is that their main opponent is each other. Capital ships offer immense firepower, but be prepared that take-off alone is a massive undertaking: Crew requirements are immense, often requiring 30 people or more, and the cost of operations, weapons & ammunition, fuel, maintenance… expect Capital Ships to be operated by successful organizations only.

  1. Hornet F7C-R Tracker
    Related: Search & BuySpecs Hornet Tracker;
  2. Terrapin
    Related: Search & BuySpecs TerrapinCommercial;
