The Minotaur is a distinctly average missile frigate, and is not frequently employed. As with most Argon ships the Minotaur represents the base-line of comparison, in this case to other M7Ms.
Sporting a large array of launchers, the Minotaur is a swift and powerful ship, excelling in 'hit and run' tactics.
The Minotaur has no real weaknesses to exploit,but also no particular strengths to draw on other than being a missile frigate. Like all missile frigates, it fights by launching barrages of warheads at all targets in sensor range, keeping them from getting close enough to engage in a close-range fight that the Minotaur will likely lose.
The Minotaur can fit the following missiles in its missile turrets:
As a M7M, the Minotaur is an effective long range artillery ship capable of destroying any opponent. Able to mount boarding pods the Minotaur can also be employed as a boarding ship. Unfortunately there is almost no reason to choose this ship over the Boron Kraken, which is significantly faster, has equivalent shielding and sports a larger cargo bay.
As any Missile frigate, the Minotaur, when fielded with a full complement of missiles, is an instant "I Win" button
