I own two three packs. The Vesta. And the Kumari. In terms of bang for buck, the Vesta is one of the best out there as a three pack. You get one of the top science ships in the entire game, and you get a variety of build options and skins to customize its look and playability.

I only have the Vesta, but it's my primary ship. It's my favorite ship, actually. It's durable, powerful, and versatile. I typically use 3 aux DHC's for the simple fact that it splits my energy costs and increases damage output. I can easily swap the LtC station from science to eng and back. That way I can run 2 aux2damp, which makes the Vesta very maneuverable.

Just last night I was playing Ker'rat and a Warbird tried to vape me. It didn't work. In fact, I turned it around on him and blew him up. After that, he cloaked and ran out as soon as things failed to go his way, which I just chased him with evasive and activated sensor scan to see through the cloak since I was really close. Then he brought his buddy in to double team me. They still couldn't vape me, but they did finally get the kill. Being as maneuverable as an escort with the abilities of a science vessel is a big advantage when going after escorts. You lack the speed, but that doesn't matter when you can drop a grav well, Target Engines, and other science snares.

I bought the three pack during a sale and I regret it. I only fly the tactical focused one, though I do use the other skins. If I were to do it again, I would only get the tactical one.

That's why I only bought the tac & sci Vesta ships... I just run the tac Vesta but use the sci skin.

Wouldn't it be cheaper to buy the bundle (3 of them) since it's the same price

It would be. Also, the point of three pack as well is the three special consoles. Regarding the latter, probably the most useful special three consoles in the entire game. It certainly adds to survivability and can be added to anyone of the three ship skins. It's a great ship, probably the most versatile and best in game Fed side.

I got both on ship sales. So eh... not a big deal for me.

I still find it fun to fly the ship on my other 2 FED alts who are sci and tac with the Vesta Class. Thanks to the new space set from the FE, they really got more tanky.

While I only played around a little last night due to the joys of being a dad, but I really had alot of fun with her so far. I did get the whole pack, now I've really gotta get my Omega marks back up and get some better gear for it. Thanks again for the tips everyone

I have the 3 pack also, but wouldn't it also be possible to get 3 aux DHC just by owning 1 ship then discharging and reclaiming it?

Never got much use out of the consoles myself though, I use the 3 pack just for different console layouts but never found a way to fit the Vesta consoles in as sci ships generally need sci stat boosting consoles.
unless they have changed things yes. I tried with the quad cannons but they would not let me put more than one on my Sao Paulo. bastiches

I have 3 aux DHC's installed in my Vesta right now. I just claim, discharge, and reclaim until I have 3.
