Overview

Similar to an ASP Explorer but has 4 Missile pylons instead of 1.

Notable Features

There really is nothing that makes the Harrier stand out from its rivals. It has good acceleration and manoeuvrability and, provided a small jump drive is installed, a reasonable amount of cargo space.

Disadvantages

As with many ships of this ilk, it doesn't do a particularly great job in any field. It should be thought of as a stepping stone to greater things.

Verdict

A viable alternative to the Asp Explorer. Slightly less extreme thrusters and slightly smaller payload, and so on.
