Argosy Pirate

The Auroran Argosy is an Auroran ship in Escape Velocity Nova.

"The Heraan house have always held scientists and scholars in much higher regard than the rest of the Empire. The fertile environment in which Heraan technicians work has produced this surprisingly trim vessel. Built more along the lines of early Federation efforts, the Argosy packs many improvements on even the latest Federation efforts, and is a spritely performer. It sports twin hyperdrive 'nacelles' that allow for more accurate FTL travel, and those selfsame nacelles can fold outward for excellent maneuverability in atmospheric flight." ― Buying an Argosy
""Many warriors may mock my ship. That is because they do not have a forward-thinking mind. She may not be traditional, but she carries enough cargo to be worthwhile, with the teeth to get it where it needs to go." You eye the Auroran opposite you, and wonder why these people are so often seen as savages." ― Hiring an Argosy

Gameplay Analysis

"A very nice, heavily armed/defended freighter, the Argosy is the perfect ship to use if you need to go through a hostile area. They're fun to pirate, but be care for the Heavily Modified variants." ― EVula Survival Guide
This craft also comes in a Pirate version. It is highly recommended to face your prow toward enemy ships when attacking, as it has a high number of weapon mounts for a ship of its class and can destroy hostile ships quickly, but its slow turn speed is a liability in combat. Also, if the ammo runs out, you can only run away.
