Are you a mantis? Do you lack ships to fight and Zoltans to chew? Look no further! Come to your nearest mantis warcamp in the Zoltan Homeworlds or Zoltan controled sector and ask for a free brochure about how to farm the Zoltan! Results may very.

My best was on the Kestrel: 2 burst laser mk2 and a glaive beam with a weapon pre igniter and 2 automated reloaders. I also had 2 antiship Mk2 drones and cloaking level 3.
I had 6 zoltan, and a rockman+crystal anti-boarding crew/pilot. The only minor vulnerability is that I never upgraded shields beyond 2, and that 6 zoltan are remarkably fragile during boarding actions.
Of course, without 6 zoltan I couldn't have powered all my guns and drones, which prevented the flagship from getting more than a single shot off (Which missed).

Once I was flying the Zoltan B and had the following:
Weapons:
Glaive Beam
Burst laser MK2
Burst laser MK2
Fire Beam

Level 8 weapon control
Level 4 shields
Level 8 engines
Level 3 doors
Level 3 sensors
Level 2 selm
Level 3 cloak
Level 2 medbay
Dronebay with a beam drone and anti-personel drone

Max level reactor

Crew: 6 zoltan, 1 engi, 1 human

Augments:
-Zoltan overshield
-Weapon pre-igniter
-Scrap recovery arm

This run was insanely lucky, Glaive beam for sale in sector 2, sold the pike beam right away along with a drone I found. Then I bought a fire beam and used the ion blasts to drop the shields and kill the crew with fire. :twisted: One burst laser I bought, the other I got from a beacon avoiding smuggler. 2 of the Zoltan were hired at a shop, and the third joined my crew after being rescued from slavers. Engi from the space horses and the human from a mantis escape pod.

Everything died so fast after getting those burst lasers, it was hilarious.
