That’s what I thought, I guess I just didn’t bring enough radiation guns. I also knocked down the nuke launchers to 1 per cruiser since he likes his guidance scramblers. Rather than go with high damage guns I went with regular Cruiser Laser since it’s mid damage, quick fire rate, and close range. The shield/armor penetration is lacking, but it’s tribe and they don’t have much of either so it seemed like a good decision.
I also upped the stakes to 20k 35 pilots so I could bring two partial fighter squadrons. I gave them the higher damage laser and a rocket launcher and forewent the armor. I told the to escort the middle cruiser but at a long 450 distance so they engage about when rest of the fleet engages. I have 3 savior frigates with nothing but 3 armor, 3 emp2 launchers, and an anti-fighter missile launcher all set to maintain formation behind the cruisers.
I’ll let you know how it turns out.
