    Ironclad, they can still get you base parts and uranium on auto. Cannoneer would probably require driving since it's a lot more frail. Ironclad also did better in the raid cycle (though you'd probably need a whole fleet because of the stacking bonuses). That being said, buccaneer is in the coop TLC, it'll probably be more useful for you if you don't have a siege fleet.

  • Get Buccaneers from Path to Continent campaign.  It is co-op.  If you can't do it, find a friend who can.

    Ironclads are better than cannoneers.  Both are over a year old.  The buccaneers and hydras replace them.

    Ironclads can take more damage. They can auto drac uranium bases, current base part targets and the drac subsector bases.

    Cannoneers have to be driven well.  They have to shoot from their max range.  If you get too close, they  will melt.

    The base part targets will be changing very soon. The base targets will be from the Siege raid that just ended.  Hydra and buccaneer were the best ships for these targets.  Ironclads can do the lowest level targets.  Cannoneers had a very hard time in the lowest target.
