Veteran Comments

Read the Veteran Comments policy before editing this section.


The Tereus isn't dangerous towards fighters, but is very dangerous to cruisers and corvettes. The best place to attack from is from behind, below the thrusters. The engine wash and turrets shouldn't bother you too much if you park there and pound away, but considering the nature of most of the INFR1 missions, there will probably be a horde of fighters to hunt you down.
