Yes, you are correct. The PDS and ADS (only difference in game play
is the RANGE) fire at small targets during the ship firing phase of
the turn. They do NOT fire at incoming munitions/fighters as part of
the fighter attack. CIDS now does that.
So, ships and missiles and fighters fly around.
Ships fire all weapons - capitol weapons against other ships or
against small targets, and any PDS/ADS against any small target in
Then the surviving small targets attack in accordance to their attack
