I used a fleet of what I call OWP (Orbital Weapons Platforms, an old Starfire term) cruisers – no engines, extra armor and shield. Escort frigates and friendly fighters to deal with the enemy fighters. OWP cruisers have plasma and lasers. I finished the mission with no difficulty (lost no cruisers) and got 0 Honor. This happened earlier today with a different mission. I don’t remember if I used OWPs for that one.
This was the first time I fought this battle. Are we penalized for using OWPs or for not losing enough of a percentage of our fleet?
