I’ve had the game for about two weeks now, and I’m having a great time - been through all the base scenarios ( I haven’t purchased Tribe or Order yet) as the Feds…
There is one particular gap that I wish could be filled – why isn’t there a Target Painter module for Frigates? I mean, fighters can mount these things, why not Frigates?
Right now to make a truly effective anti-fighter escort frigate, I need to attach a few Painter Fighters as escorts to the AAF. While this makes for a pretty effective combo [ AAF escorts Cruiser(s), 3 or so PFs escort the AAF ] and I see attacking fighter swarms dissolve quickly, this seems wasteful of fighters to me.
Or am I missing something? prepares for embarrassment
