Been trying to see if there are any tactical advantages for the different techs in the early / mid game.  One 'obvious' way to do this is to rely on the long range sniping ability of vessels armed predominantly with missiles or torps. Which has got me thinking, what are the optimum arrangement of  vessels specialisation by weapon system?


I've yet to field many beam weapon strong vessels. Those that I do rely on a forward facing laser or blaster in a [hull mount thingy]. What is the optimum mounting for beam weapons? Does facing currently make any difference? 


The only reason I'm considering missile/torp vs beam, is because this means that I can enter a battle with a forward 'tanking' van of CR etc, with wings of  sniping vessels. 


And yes, I haven't mentioned fighters, heavy fighters or heavy bombers. Still got to try them out a bit more before I feel that I can justifiably have an opinion.

Missiles are long range and if you pack enough they dominate, but beam weapons are better for anti missile/torp and closer combat.

So early if the missile has better dps the best choice are these. I all depends on dps. Many small ships with missiles think old Orion1:)

MIRV missiles with FMR and DGS. Any space left over place your best PD weapon in all remaining slots. 1 PD each in 6 slots is more powerful then 6 PDs in 1 slot. Check the 'PD Effectiveness' under Combat Stats. If you can fit a PD in all remaining slots, and have space remaining, then just pack as many as you can in one of them.

Through the captain’s command panel, my keywords thiet bi ngan hang the cargo crews acknowledged preparations to recover the kelp. As the Trilarians coasted slowly through the wreckage of the Klackon ships, the crew of the Olympia offered quiet thanks to the Old Gods for their guidance in battle.
