Oh, I just use it in Instant Action, so the twin quad-lights. For the story, if I have the Corvette, I use that exclusively. The firepower and survivability are unmatched, while still having good maneuverability.
Warning: Spoiler!

That and I rarely use the free-form mod that lets you keep playing after the story has ended, so I never have the Storm Petrel available for piracy. I really should do that though, just for kicks.

Very little about the game is not known to me. Any questions you got, throw them at me. :)

Yes, pirating a megafreighter that has eight heavy corvette escorts really proves the storm petrel's capabilities. The hardest thing is getting the freighter to drop its pods without getting slammed by half a dozen gattling cannons and blown out of the galaxy. That's what the cutting beam is for. It also comes in handy later, if you get a good safe bead on one of the escorts.

I just had a thought about the two seats in Momaw's version. Lucretia's Storm Petrel has the same cockpit as the command section (because the makers were to lazy to make a second cockpit and the functionality required to switch between them, I guess). This cockpit only has one seat. Would two seats fit in the normal Storm Petrel?

Yes. The Storm Petrel looks small because of the low poly count and low-res textures, but if you open the model in a 3d modelling program and stick some chairs in, they fit fine.
The Encyclopedia says that the Storm Petrel's length is 35 meters. The wingspan of a Boeing 737 is 34.7 meters, if I did the math right.

Okay. Next time I have EOC running, I will try using Beuty Shots to put a comsec and Lucretia's Storm Petrel side by side. I thought the two were about the same size, based largely on the same cockpit model.
