Notes[edit | edit source]

The Hound is a light, cheap tramp freighter with limited combat ability. It is extremely fast and maneuverable, which helps it to survive in combat despite its lack of a shield. If you still plan on using it in combat though, it is often best to outfit the ship with longer range support weapons such as the Hypervelocity Driver or Heavy Mauler, and point defenses to deter missile threats. Its low logistic demands encourage niche use of it, such as a fast pursuit ship against fleeing cargo ships. The Hound also has the infamous distinction of the lowest deployment points cost of any ship with also enough OP to mount an Operations Center hullmod, giving it a surprising niche as a flagship in very large fleets that want to issue a lot of orders.
