I have three main cruiser long range cruiser designs consisting of Federation Panther Cruisers armed solely with one type of long range weapon. I typically put a few of these behind my main battle line to provide support.
Gunboats: Heavy plasma
Macross: Fast missile
Macross-L : Multi warhead missiles
I am thinking of sacrificing some armor to add a “target booster”, will this positively effect their performance? Is it advisable to sacrifice one launcher (of eight) to add a target painter? Do cruisers receive accuracy bonuses from other cruiser’s or frigate’s target painters? Have any of you had any luck with any other type of missile (Regular, decoy, megaton etc.)? How about the other types of plasma gun?
