Banu Merchantman

Recommended Posts

Gotta remember them amount of fire power this ship has. It's got a bunch of weapons. It has to class ones which are fixed heavy weapons these are size four which puts them rather high up.

Thanks for the link. It says max 4, like the Constellation.

 

I was wondering if it was worth having one if I already have a Connie. It would be better for hauling to make money but I am starting with exploration so may be able to cover more ground with my current ship. Also I do not know how often I would be able to fill all slots and have 4 people on my ship to get the most out of it so having another ship that I would not fully crew would not be wise. I was hoping to get another ship to go just myself or with one other person that could be very good at one role like hauling. The MM is such an awesome looking ship and I almost bought one last year but did not want to spend the money and have been kind of kicking myself ever since. Knowing that it will also need 4 people to get the most out of it makes me feel less bad about not getting one :)

If you want to just do cargo hauling missions then it can carry more than the Constellation, either wait for it to be on a 24hr sale again or buy it in the PU.

Both my Banu Merchantman and Constellation with have only 1 crewmember. A perm AI crew member from my 2nd single ship package will be my other crewman.

@Blackbeard I have 2 single ship game packages. Rear Admiral and Weekend Warrior.

Thus I have 2 whole Alpha game packages, on one account. The Merchantman and Retaliator i have are just ships, they are not in any package.

The extra character slot introduced by the game package can become your own custom AI crewmember. I wont go into more detail as its drifting too far from Banu discussion. :)

I love my Banu even more now. Also Im sure Im never going to buy the Haul C, it has 20t cargo more but the Banu has way better weapons, twice the maneuvering trusters and better engines.

And going on the size of the Haul C (must going to look like a freakin bus), the looks of the Banu are way better

I had my eyes on the Banu merchantman for a while now, sadly i missed the sale...

 

I do wonder why the crew went up to 8 with only 2 turrets (but those are size 5 from the start!!).

 

The new stats make more sense to me, even though they droped a few guns , the 180 cargo really makes up for it.

Did you see it had the only quality 4 thrusters listed in stats?

The powerplant went up to size 6, though the basemodel has only size 5 Highly efficent/High output (if memory serves)

 

I hope the have another sale in autum! :D

 

 

on a general note, the upgrade slots on the ships are not listed anymore...

      Selling various ships. With this past anniversary sale I'm starting to get a better idea of how I want my own personal fleet to take form so giving people the chance to grab some of my buybacks. Prices and melt value as well as whether they are concept sales or CCU'd have been listed. Payment can be sent via paypal FROM VERIFIED ACCOUNTS ONLY. Prices include fees. Discount can be provided for f&f, is that even allowed? If it's allowed then it's true lol, if it's not allowed then obviously disregard. I can send pictures of stuff upon request, I'm just honestly too lazy to do it.
      Orion Concept Sale LTI -  Price $400USD - Melt  Value $325
      Aegis Redeemer Concept Sale LTI - Price $275USD - Melt Value $250

      Banu Defender Concept Sale LTI - Price $210USD - Melt Value $185
      Banu Merchantman (24 Months insurance) - Price $300USD - Melt Value $250
      Superhornet (6 months insurance) - Price $175USD - Melt Value $165
      Model II Arclight Sidearm - Price $15USD - Melt Value $5
      I can also CCU to a bunch of ships with either LTI or non-LTI in particular superhornet and sabre as well as some of the others. For the CCUs just message me letting me know what you're looking for and I can let you know 1) if I can do it 2) price 3) the melt value 4) what kind of insurance it would have.
      Let me know if you have any questions!

      You have to have verified PayPal account to buy ships from me. PM me if you are interested. Prices are not negotiable (however, in the case I get multiple offers before I respond to anyone I will contact everyone who PMed me if they are willing to pay more, the person offering most will get the ship. Should the price be the same the first person to contact me will get the ship).
