Can anyone divulge the design of that fighter in Cliffski’s 12,000 point Tribe Challenge? I couldn’t seem to design a Tribe fighter to counter that thing effectively, 1:1. For a moment it looked like I’d designed an exact copy, using the same hull; installing a laser; and in combat it looked to be about the exact same speed as Cliffski’s. All the same, my fighters were knocked out; and not so much by frigate missiles as by that superlative design. So I wonder what it was about that particular fighter design.
My copycat designs never entertained armour… because… after all… it is the Tribe (bad armour). But I still wonder what it was that made that fighter better than any of 5 or 6 variants thrown at it.
