Here is a video of me taking out a level 17 with small damage. It can be done without. Like this, I can salvage all day long. The same tactic also works with only harriers but you will probably take more damage, especially on 20s. This should sove the probalems for everyone who has difficulties getting res.

And just as note: This does not work on level 20 antimatter

    Harriers combined with longbow are...and probably genesis combined with broadsword even more

    Haven't been impressed with Genesis so far. Harriers have been surprising the crap out of me.

    with thrusters, the Genesis can go faster and has more armor and firepower

    I did play. But all ships are too slow, and the firing angle makes the fastest ships useless.

    I will make a guide for the use of each ship type...I can promise you that each of them has it's uses, at least till to a certain part of a game. And maybe all ships are slow, but so is the enemy...

    Genesis is not a good ship simply put.  I spent all day trying to make them useful and at least with tech equivalent to the level you get it, they are garbage.  They now are the same as my old FF cargo carriers. They need an increase in strafe/reverse speed to be even mildly useful.

    I put rear thruster on them, with 2 level 2, same speed as harriers...they are the best PvP FvF  ship(until you get exodus

    Not going to work, the longbow range bonus is why I use them. And genesis is only faster with level 3 thrusters

    Question, how do you make subgroups in your fleet? Your Longbows are part of one group and the Harrier is alone right?

    What armor and shield are you using for your harrier ?
    And what's your railgun level for the longbows ? 
    Great tactic ! :D

    edit : Tried it, it works

    War does not determine who's right, only who's left.

    A dumb question ... but how exactly do you do the 20s with no damage consistently?

    I have five longbows with railguns, and one harrier with level 3 spectral shield. The problem is that the rancor shoots sideways so when it gets turned around to face the harrier, it's in position to shoot the longbows. I've tried targetting the rancor with the longbows as my first target to get it destroyed as quickly as possible, but this seems to put them in range of the rancor's guns. I've been trying to counter that by strafing the longbows, but they're slow and usually get hit anyway. Now I'm trying to refit all the longbows with strafe thrusters 2, but well, the ships I get back have nothing in any slot, so ...

    use the Harrier to steal the attention of rancor, strafe all around and keep it in range (even though, i don't use this tactic)

    Looks like I just have to refine how I drive the harrier. Thanks for the video!
