The Scorpion and Raven make an excellent tag-team, with the Scorpion conducting ECM and the Raven going in for the kill. Using Interceptors and close-range ships also work well, since they both operate at close range and do a lot of damage, but the lack of ECM can be problematic. The Scorpion is one of the most popular though, simply due to its versatility and ECM capabilities (it is a lot easier to ransom a ship if he's stuck, rather than have him fire back).
The arrival of Covert Op birds also makes things a lot more interesting, with the prospect of one sneaking amidst a mining party, then getting its buddies with low-speed, high-damage/ECM setups to warp straight in and attack mouth-watering...
