Erinyes - Good Combo of Speed, Firepower and Defense.
Perseus - Same as above favoring speed, I'd still take one of the old Valkyies tho'
Kayser - Fast kills on every thing
Maxim - Fastest Cap ship disabler available, comboed with above, death to all but bombers 3/4 volleys.
Harpoon - Most bang for the buck in terms of no. carryable vs. other missles(3-4 extra vs. Tornado)
Trebuchet - Just cause their cool!;7
I'll take a Cyclops over a Helios, due to the lower firing time. This is so for all but Juggies and if you try to fight one w/o a fleet, or MONDO amounts of BackUp, your screwed.
