Depends on what you want to protect them from?

Not knowing what you're going up against I'll run it down for you:
  • Stalkers
    • Good anti-healer support with the thoron pulse (drains Aux power levels), but terrible dps
  • Danubes
    • Utility pets good for slowing ships down and putting people on lockdown for a short time
  • Delta Flyers
    • Capable DPS, a little tougher than Peregrines, they're a good all round choice with the only drawback being a long respawn timer
  • Peregrines
    • Simple, spammable, straight dps; dies if you look at it too long though......
  • Shield Repair
    • group support, throw it into escort mode and go do something else
  • Shuttles
    • never use them ever.......EVER, they are that useless.....

well i mostly pve so im thinking heavy torps and boarding shuttles , though killing other fighters would be good in pvp

pmadden 08-16-2012 08:50 AM

the answer is, with out question, the peregrin fighters.
on my atrox i have the blue quality X 2, i nearly always have em in intercept mode, i move em to attack target when i need to focus fire. they knock out subsystems with phasors, and their torps do fair dmg.

also get flight deck officers, can got purp doffs by doing the caitian dispora chain. or get other qualitys from lt farra at acadamy.

i have 2 purp doffs that improve acc in intercept mode
and 1 blue that increases recharge rate.
every 12 secs i can launch 12 fighters.

done and done.

thank you for your replies guys =)

Yup, if you want DPS then go Peregrines, only set that I use.

I may have to pick up some of those booster DOFF, forgot that they added those. Thanks!

Danubes are useful if you're flying the Heavy Escort Carrier and have only one hangar slot.

Your cannons and torps will take care of the DPS, and the Danubes will lock down targets, very useful when running interception in STFs against probes in Infected and Khitomer Accord, or defending the Kang in Cure.

I found the "Danoobs" helpful just a few hours ago, when they kept Donatra from moving while my team backed away to the range where she forgets to cloak and hide (about 6-7km), and we managed to finish her off with 5 minutes to spare before the server went down for maintenance :cool:

Danubes are the best pet to use in any situation.


They shoot the target with both beams and torpedoes. In essence they are slower versions of the peregrines.

The tractor beam however is what makes them the best pet possible.


Tractoring a target does not only just hold it in place. It lowers its defense bonus to ZERO.

That means any incoming damage...be it from your carrier, other pets you have out or team-mates will crit like crazy.

It is ideal to have a large target locked down into place just before you dump a gravity well or tyken's rift ... or a heavy torpedo at it.

Disagree. Their dps is just fine. Did you know the thoron pulse also deals damage? And on a side note, you forgot they're harder to shoot down than peregines AND the thoron pulse also disables targetting systems.

Combined with a set of danubes they can shut down a target.
