Kind of looks like this Esp report has been, shall we say, altered; or at the very least was not copy/pasted.

No, they are actually showing up like that!  It's a bug.

Its not just in X2. I had one (zerotech) the other day that I couldnt kill even with the kitchen sink added. I hit it anyway, due to the low losses even in 6 rounds and came away with a tidy profit. There were still enough ships remaining to warrant a second run, however it expired before the fleet got back. BTW, I have one of the largest fleets in SFCO, so I have no idea who the dang thing spawned from.
In the example shown above, I could easily turn a profit on it big enough to consider an attack. It would take a ton of posies and ares, but could be done.

I to have seen several of the NPC that have thousands of decoy's one them.  They are not just on zero teck ones either.  So far I have seen this happen in 3 different universes.

But i repeat bfg doesnt have anything to do with the npcs changing so much... boris must have broke the game and started building a couple 100k decoys since the npcs are generated from player builds  ::)
