I've noticed pirate cutthroats often attack civilian structures or vessels as opposed to military structures or vessels, could this be added?Twinkie300 16:09, 5 February 2009 (UTC)
"...the Pirate Cutthroat is one of a kind and does not resemble any of the TEC ships." Actually, they're modified TEC trade ships, with lasers and no cargo-bay.--18.104.22.168 23:20, 2 March 2009 (UTC)
Have you seen any TEC ship other then military, LEVs or refinery and trade ships? Other pirate vessels are built from scrap and military-oriented Cobalts, Krosovs, Gardas and Kodiaks. That's why it is said. By the way, why don't pirates have shields - they what, try to conserve energy?
- Perhaps shields are too expensive for them to afford on their ships. Or perhaps shields are protected military tech that hasn't been stolen by pirates yet. --Libelnon 21:38, April 13, 2010 (UTC)
