I've always thought they would be better with fighter style movement,
move after ships, no radius (must be in base-base contact).
Too powerful? With the levels of PDSs most people have evolved to
I don't think so.
That is my one minor problem with FB ships. They were a nice starting
point but didn't go through a weapons evolution which we are seeing
in the game and see in the real world. They don't have the requisite
PDS/ADFC suites to deal with a fighter/missile heavy environment.
