Check. Check. Check. Check.

Just a simple "build this and fly it".
Thank you! Just what I was looking for. A simple, short-and-to-the-point build guide.

Now, my question is: could the Advanced Escort (AE) be adapted for PvP? Can I fit the AE with the PE build? I'm an AE pilot and I wouldn't want to shell out another 120K Dil for the Patrol Escort unless absolutely necessary.

I chose the Star Cruiser upon making it to VA50 (I'm F2P) and I got tired of repeatedly having my butt handed to me in PvP. So I went and grinded real hard to buy and outfit an AE, only to quickly find out that this didn't change my predicament one bit. In fact, it only made it worse. At least in my Star Cruiser I could tank my way out of a jam for at least a couple of minutes before getting popped, whereas in the AE I only last a few SECONDS. I can't even begin to describe how frustrating this is.

I've tried several different builds I've found here in the forums (sans the overpowered P2W stuff, of course) and yet the situation doesn't change: I suck at PvP. And my current build is not too different from the ones you describe here, so please understand if I'm not too eager to jump into yet another ship-purchase-and-fitting endeavour.

Anyway, thanks for this guide. Great job!
