I like to use 55 credit ships... as cannon fodder. :D

But anywho...
It was strange, I read this topic a while ago, and yesterday I decided to play Critical Mass after playing Firefight for some ungodly amount of times, thinking about the whole one hit KO on a fully shielded ship thing. Guess what happens on the first missile that hits me? That's right. Boom! HEADSHOT! I think you cursed me. :P I didn't think I would be unlucky enough for that to happen to me. :(

There's a 40 credit ship I fly once in a while when I'm feeling brave. Good way to get medals.

I know this is a dead topic, but I just came out of a mission where three out of four of my wingmates all got significant hits on enemy targets, and two survived.

The survivors were flying my 55 credit mini stealth fighter. It turns on a dime and has enough Daycorns to slake off some enemy armor for my Plectrons to have a clear shot at their innards.

Yes, it is possible to make an excellent ship for friendly AI to pwn with at under 80 creds each. The trick is side engines/side armor. About the ancient start of this post, I have had the same thing happen to me on MULTIPLE occasions. Funny how that never happs to the enemy.

I just had something happen that I've never seen before. I went head to head with an enemy ship and fired 1 daycorn and 2 plectrons. The enemy ship fired something similar and we wiped each other out head to head. It was very odd to see two ships disintegrate face to face.

That happened to me once, too. But it wasn't nearly as odd as when I ejected, my escape pod bounced into an enemy's escape pod and pushed the latter into the path of a missile.

Or as when the same thing happened to me, except I was the one pushed into a missile, and I bounced off a friendly escape pod.
