First battlefleet
« on: September 12, 2017, 11:54:40 AM »
I have designed my first battlefleet to take on a group of ships in a neighboring system.   I am assuming they are of the spoiler variety.   There are two which went very fast: 16,000ish or so and three which went 6250ish.   All of them were size 199.   I got hit by groups of 10 size 1 missiles launched by at least one of them.   Its possible there are other smaller ships in the fray as well.   Their thermal scanners were very strong, and I didn't get as close as I had hoped with my red shirt scouts I made. 

I already built this fleet, but am posting it for comments for upgrades after the encounter is over. 

1st up, 2x carriers:

Each carrier brings 8 talon missile bombers, 5 lancer laser fighters, 2 enervator microwave fighters, and 1 cateye search sensor to target lock for the missiles.   It has enough ammo for two full reloads of the bombers, and I'm bringing a Collier to carry a third.

Not sure why the missile isnt listed here- its listed below as a shrapnel class.   Damage 4, size 6, range 48M.   MFC is deliberately oversized.

The primary armament of these is the Gauss turrets, but it has a set of slow firing missile launchers in case fast movers get too close and need swatting. 

The main punch of the fleet comes from the Ballista class missile cruiser and ace of spades class laser destroyer.   Bringing 2 of each.

Missile to hit chances are vs targets moving at 3000 km/s, 5000 km/s and 10,000 km/s

Shrapnel class missiles are for taking out fast movers.   Spectre class missiles are for slower opponents.   Pebbles are secondaries in case fast movers get too close or the Gauss screen isn't providing enough cover.   I have a Collier for each which brings an extra volley of shrapnel and two volleys of pebbles.

Will try to hold these in reserve until hostile AMMs are expended, and then start punching at the slower ships which will hopefully have their electronics shot out by my enervator fighters.   I know the range is awful.   I tried to build a tug to haul it to the front, but ended up needing to rely on my fuel tankers instead.   Next version will be a little larger and carry more fuel. 

I also have 3 FACs with no weapons, but a 6-66 thermal scanner, a 1-11 EM sensor, and an emergency cryo berth, 5 fuel harvester/tankers, a salvager, and the aforementioned colliers (small FACs which either carry 1 reload for each ballista or 1/2 reload for the haven's bomber flight.   Bringing 6 total.   They will run away after unloading.  )

Please remember to give us your impressions (not necessarily a report) after the engagement.

My first generation warships used internal fusion drives with a uniform fleet speed of 5000km/s and I eagerly focused on propulsion research to get to 10,000km/s fleet speed after my first engagements. Combat doctrine matters with these choices, however, so that's why I'll be curious about your thoughts post-battle; I wasn't using carriers at my initial fleet speed and my warships all exceeded 12,000 tons.
