The BR4 has a useful role in any fleet. Because it cloaks and has gravatonic accelerators, it is good as a scout. In addition, it is good for being the tow capture ship for the Privateers' wolfpacks because without a torp tube it is lower risk to lose. Since it has gravatonic accelerators, even with Quantum Drive 7s or Hyper Drive 8s it is still faster than other ships. Since the BR4 is relatively cheap and has gravatonic accelerators and two engines, it is useful for towing. With 5 beams, if built with high tech beams it is a cheap and fast minesweeper.

- The Br4 Gunship loses about 50% of the normal crew/clans while cloaked inside radiation.
