Its modular design allows maximum compatibility with the most current weapon systems. While versatile due to great weapons compatibility, the Ray III is not the most adaptable fighter once deployed due to only having a single primary and secondary bank.

Not too shabby for a starting ship, especially considering the alternative which is the slow and clumsy Caliburn which is far, far worse. However, as soon as you complete Life of a Test Pilot, you'll want to start using the Ray III E or W you got right away and ditch the original, as these two have more emphasized strengths and have weapons compatibilities to the more powerful weapons later on.
