Rookie Question: Frigate Question

So I know that thrusters are practically a must for most ships, but what kind of thrusters should Frigates get?
Since Frigates use all kinds of movements, what is the best thruster for them? Is it Fusion? Binary? Rotation? Rear? Strafe?

    Looks like you just unlocked Talon frigates. My advice would be skip Talon frigates, skip Nighthawk frigates and go straight for Venom battleships. Feel free to make a fleet of Exodus cruisers and Broadswords.

    If you're going to use them for close combat, Binary is best, strafe second best. In some cases fusion will work too, but strafing is

    If you're using them as decoys, rear thrusters (or fusion) are a must

    Unless the frigate is Hurricane or Tornado, don't bother using them.

    You still can use Mk IV Nighthawks as cargo fleet.
