I agree.  The Warbirds probably shouldn't be considered a serious threat
to my own carrier tactics.  Their main role in my playing is to throw a
curve ball at people who overstock on PDS.  They're designed to beat
people, not my own fightermania.  :)

That said, I probably am going to redesign them some time between now
the next time I play them, not so much to deal with fighters but to deal
with missiles and plasma, which my opponents _have_ been playing with to
a greater degree.  My wife has been using missiles, my brother-in-law
generally likes pulse torpedoes but has been known to throw a
of that and plasma when he's got access to my copy of FB2.
