What is your favourite Corvette?

What is your favourite Corvette-class Warship?  I don't know why, I've always had a soft spot for the Fredasa.  Great little slasher warship.

Fox, even though it's only a Corvette due to mass.
Your stupid little opinion has been duly noted.

No. Shut up. And... *kicks you in the crotch*

She doesn't carry a lot of guns, but I like the Bonnie.

Toss up between the Zec II and Fox.  Zec does the role better, but the Fox is my fav on that list and is great for its own reasons.  Went Fox.

Vigilant. She may not be the fastest or toughest out there, but she's a born scrapper. Also, the missile spread is just delicious, making it great as a light fleet support unit. Keep a couple in your backfield firing bearing shots all day, you'll probably do a lot more actual damage than you'd expect for a ship that small.

Fredesa over the Fox, because the Fox is little more than an undergunned mini Potemkin.

Yeah, corvette is one of the pretty wiggy definitions that has a very wide range of actual mission roles depending on the frame and builder.

I almost went Vigilant...love the look, love the loadout...but I went Mako instead...biggest engines out there for its size, well armored, well armed for its size...

 The Zechetinu II is a wonderful ship.
