This is probably one of the Hardest classes to defeat as of now. It consists of 5 Cutters, 2 Battleships and a Carrier.
Rebel Hunters (33) EditThe Rebel hunter fleet consists of 5 Mk V Taipan Cutters armed with Burst Ray, 2 MK V Fury battleships armed with Mass drivers and a MK V Valhalla Carrier armed with fighter squadrons and protected by Shockwave Shields.
Despite the lower level of this fleet, it deals a lot of damage for its level and with the rebalance update that reduced the strength of most shields, extreme caution should be taken when fighting this fleet. However, the update has made this fleet vulnerable to cruisers, so bring a fleet of Strong Exodus/Revelation cruisers to outmuscle the cutters. Run away to seperate the battleships from the carrier, rush them and then finally go for the Carrier.

VEGA Hunters (40) EditThe lowest level of the Hunter fleets, but still as deadly. Consists of 5 Mk V Gharial Cutters armed with Thermal beams, 2 Mk V Dread Battleships armed with Gladius Drivers and a Mk V Ragnarok Carrier armed with Fighter squadrons and protected by Spectral Shields.
The immediate presence of the Gharial Cutters immediately makes for a extremely tough problem because the insane speed makes them unkiteable by any means. Combined with the firepower from the dreads, this fleet is extremely difficult to defeat,
This fleet can be done with Thermal Revs, but with quite a bit of damage, the easiest way is still the Dread Rag Combo, line the battleships in a line Northwest or northeast of the cutters, with a decoy to draw the cutters attention. Strafe the battleships back n decimate the Cutters as they get in range with the Dread's Weapons and Carrier's Squadrons. Next, send a battleship to kite the 2 Dreads. Once that is done, Send your carrier in to take out the enemy carrier, shielded by your battleship.

Vsec Hunter (53) EditVsec's Hunter Fleet is even more deadlier than VEGA's. The Fleet consists of 5 Komodo Cutter MK Vs armed with the Deadly Burst Ray, 2 Zeal Battleship MK Vs armed with Gladius Drivers and a Valkyrie Carrier armed with Fighter Squadrons, protected by Shockwave Shields.
It is highly advised to avoid this fleet unless you are marking up your Komodo Cutters, or don't have a Dread Rag fleet as the Cutters will rip your Ships apart extremely Quickly. With Stasis Resistance, it also makes it extremely Difficult to kite with battleships.
As with the VEGA Hunters, line the battleships in a line Northwest or northeast of the cutters, with a decoy to draw the cutters attention. Strafe the battleships back n decimate the Cutters as they get in range with the Dread's Weapons and Carrier's Squadrons. Next, send a battleship to kite the 2 Dreads. Once that is done, Send your carrier in to take out the enemy carrier, shielded by your battleship.
