You guys don't understand the eagle is one of, if not the best ship and the easiest to obtain of the VHFs (besides the Anubis). Armor isnt everything. The maneuverability of the eagle is much greater than the titan or sabre. Armor doesn't mean anything if you aren't able to be hit. the overall size of the eagle is the same basic size of the falcon, where as the titan and sabre could be compared to a freighter class ship. I am using an eagle with 2 diamondbacks, and 2 blue blazes. I have my other guns switched off even and i can take out a titan in 4 shots. Smaller ships in 2 to 3 shots. Beacause of the size and sluggishness of the titan it doesn't hold up to the eagle in any fight. If you get the class 10 shield for the eagle it is damn near unbeatable. (VHF is very heavy fighter. Titan is the corsair VHF. Sabre is the outcast VHF.)
In multiplayer, I'll favour the Eagle in vanilla Freelancer.
