I made Legend in Korolov & the toughest thing to come at me was Moray .. Nor did I get the warning about being Hunted ....
Neither gate was near anything strong enough to take down a Frigate nor could I find a wreck.

I did meet a Frigate in Charon, ( still trying to kill it but I wanted a Ferian Plasma Torch first so I can Mine Charon ) but I don't remember that being the way it goes

I don't like to kill pirates in cold blood ..I do it.. but I don't like it..

Kronosaurus shows up when you kill enough frigates, not when you make legend.

Or you complete enough escorting mission with/out killing one or two frigate.

ty guys, the frigate in Charon was the Kronosaurus, However, I just never had a game that went that way --- which is cool because it reinforces the fact that the game is Always different no matter how many times you play it.

----------Update ---

new game, I met the Kronosaurus in a normal system after getting the warning from Korolov & the ClassVDeflector ---it took ALOT of KM500 (started w/ 137 ended w/ 67 ) Plus Turbolasers & Autons to bring it down..if it wasn't for the M1 & M1/a I think we would have been toast , that is NOT the "Old Kronosaurus"...that thing was a Tank.

It's hard to kill without a combination of blast plate and Stilettos. If I have to fight it without having blast plate myself, I always hope it'll drop blast plate when it dies so I'll finally have some.

The last couple of times I met it, I had to shoot it with Stilettos from far away while flying backward.

Actually Kronos isn't very resistant to against particle (Shuriken recommended, but if possible buy lancer).

But since there aren't any tracking particle bolts in vanilla, you have to either get really close to the ship or shoot at it from far away for a very long time.

I could see how a Shuriken + Stilettos could work up close, though.

The Kronosaurus is one of those enemies where the Particle Beam Weapon is actually quite useful. It can shoot down the missiles the Kronosaurus fires fairly reliably, and target a single armor segment well enough, too. The Lancer is quite a bit better for this, certainly, but if you can't find one or don't want to spend the extra money, it will work.

Against the internal HP, it can kill it quickly enough through rapidly applied small amounts of damage, but I always just take the opportunity to burn off a few of the 200 or so Longbows I've looted from Drake wrecks by that point.

That's how I kill it when I have blast plate, although for me, it's usually a Morning Star or Moskva repeater instead of the lancer cannon. The lancer is a bit too accurate for my ability to aim to shot down all of the missiles I'd like to.

If I don't have blast plate, I find it to be a workable strategy against normal Charon frigates but not the Kronosaurus.
