Two years ago I was a Minmatar pilot in that I flew only Minmatar hulls. This wasn’t quite true, of course, for who hasn’t grabbed whatever shuttle happens to be for sale? More importantly, in mining ops I had worked my way up through Retrievers and into a Hulk. When it counted, though–when I was fitting and flying for me, for my own fun–only Minnie ships would do.
Here’s the ship that changed all that, the Angel Cartel’s Cynabal. So nice not to have to dilute projectile damage with missiles! It was my first pirate hull, so I christened it I’m Not From Here. It was also the first ship in which I ever went riding to the rescue (alone). A newer player–there were some of those by that time–put out a general call ten jumps away for help with a mission that needed slaying. With his destroyer and this sweet ride, many Slorr felt the wrath of the Cynabal that day.
It’s still the only cruiser I have that can go north of 700 DPS. Good boat.
