I was thinking about purchasing an Ar'Kif but since Scorpions are pretty much worthless against the Voth I would like to find out what else can be equipped before I buy. Anyone know?

Just the standard pets, depending on your allegiance.

i don't think you can get anything better than ultra elite scorpions (from the rom reputation T5) for this specific ship
Go pro or go home

It's a standard hangar, so it should be able to use any craft other than frigates or ship-specific fighters (like the ones that came with the freebie Obelisk Carrier, for instance).

As an "escort carrier" type ship, it's limited to fighters as others have said and fighters are all squishy against AoE spam.

But don't let that put you off, the Ar'Kif is still quite a formidable ship in its own right.

It just got that hangar added to boost sales as people knew that compared to a Mogai or Dhelan, it didn't really add much to the lineup besides it's 10% boost to plasma damage with the Ar'Kif/Ar'Kala set bonus... which requires you to use plasma quad cannons to get. Also the fleet version of the Ar'Kif is 5 tac consoles so something else to consider.
Man is a gaming animal. He must always be trying to get the better in something or other.
Warning, this poster tends to talk nonsensically when caffine levels fall below 80%.

Some of the rep earned ship specific pets can be put on anything --- pretty sure the elite swarmers can go on other carriers for example if earned from your fleet (?). Someone can double check this though...

I Have the Ultra Rare Yellowstone runabouts on mine if that helps, hanger supports 4 of them. Very expensive but nasty...

Thanks for the replies. I have the elite scorps now, plan to pick up the 2 different orion hangars later. Was lucky enough to be on NoP PS channel when they completed their spire and was able to grab myself the fleet version.

FYI for the Fleet Ar'kif if you want to keep the Fleet skin look don't try to alter the look at the shipyard guy as it is bugged and you will not have the fleet option in the dropdown menu.

Thanks to Nerds of Prey (and Grim in particular) for allowing me to pick up the ship!
