So once again I was peacefully traveling through the systems when someone tried to shoot at me.
Now, one may think he'd have a good chance if he was in a heavy battleship. Instead this guy is in a thorax and shoots at a non-outlaw pirate.
Needless to say, the thorax got shot down and I was 2 alpha hull expanders richer.
So a short guide:
A pirate with Yellow or transparent box.
DO NOT SHOOT! Sentries will shoot you.
A pirate with Red flashing box.
You may shoot, but you'll probably end up dead anyhow if you dont have backup.
