Early on the Javelin will be very useful as its wide arc of fire helps before Targeting Units or Missiles are unlocked. Later on, this ship can be used as a boss hunter with 6-8 Pulse Multi-Cannons (2-4 on Satellites). Swapping in an Afterburner and Neutron Blasters on it and the Dart satellites causes it to become a very dangerous brawler and boss killer.
It's worth noting that the Javelin can use M3 satellites, and is one of the smallest and lightest ships capable of doing so.
All variants, for the most part, slower than your ships and can either be out-ranged or outmaneuvered with relative ease. Their weaponry are also focused for combating small and fast ships as they fire a spray of pulse cannon projectiles.
- Non-veterans are straightforward, armed with a Frontal Energy Shield, 2 Small Pulse Cannon M2s and 2 Pulse Cannons.
- Veterans retain their shield but upgrade the Small Pulse Cannon M2s so they're armed with a total of 4 Pulse Cannons.
