STO-relevant GF Commander bonuses
« on: May 21, 2020, 09:51:59 AM »
Which Commander bonuses affect STO fire?

Offence (direct-fire), Artillery (indirect) or Anti-Aircraft?
Is there any difference in this topic when STO formation fires at orbital or ground targets?

Since STO is neither Artillery nor Anti-Aircraft, but is a ground unit, logically the answer is Offence or nothing.

Wow!
I was in impression, that Tactical Bonus drop-down sorting case for GF Commanders is an artifact.
Assigned some officers to my new StO formations, and after a year of service there half of them have significant Tactical Bonuses.

So, I think, it is not Offence, it's Tactical!

According to http://aurora2.pentarch.org/index.php?topic=8495.msg110196#msg110196 ground commanders don't even have a 'Tactical' bonus, but it makes weird sense that STO commanders are using naval skills for shooting at ships.

Where is that drop-down? Is there one specifically for ground commanders? I just noticed the increase in tactical skill for STO commanders, but the only way I can find to sort ground commanders by tactical is by selecting all officers which clutters the list with naval commanders.

Also, STO commanders apparently don't get the tonnage credit (or medals) for shooting a ship in orbit to pieces. (The medal in the screen was a manual award, and the change in command happened a few hours later.)

I also found a ground commander that has a tactical skill without ever having commanded an STO (or anything at all). But the commander of the academy at Mars at the time may have had one.

Apparently it was fixed in 1.11 (released four days after my post here).
Haven't tested StO commanders in 1.11 yet.

I hadn't observed STO commanders before, so I don't know exactly what has changed with regard to STOs in 1.11. But my screenshots are from 1.11.
