Yeah sure maybe if he researches a better missile those launchers will be worth more.

Or he could not research new missiles and be stuck with a bunch of worthless crap that cant even breach 2-thick armor.

If you can't make a size 5 missile that has a good warhead and good speed then I am not confident that a good missile will come in a timely fashion.
More lasers or more deployment/armor.
Or don't even replace them with something and now there are less ships that can kite you - removing the need for those missiles further.

If the missiles are such an integral part of the design, remove some of the fuel that poor missile has. It really isnt worth slinging 4 damage accross 70m km. Aim for 20-30bn.

I agree Droll.

I usually make shorter ranged missiles now.  Often I just aim for whatever range a 0.1HS MFC would be against 2000-5000 tons (depending on what I'm fighting).

This allows the missile to pack much bigger punch and/or be much faster.

So for the OP I do think either strip them out completely and just lean into the lasers more.  Or if you want to have them, redesign the missiles and mfc around shorter ranged alpha strike that you can unleash to soften the enemy up while you close to laser range.

Thanks for the tips. So turrets are not needed if their tracking speed is same as ship speed. This will save a lot of weight. I also researched fuel economy 0.5 updated engine gives 29m range.

Also I read somewhere that armour increase maintenance. I could lower armour to 7. My missiles are not my primary in research, but probably better missile is ready before this is built. It is anyway secondary weapon.  It sounds good to have lower range missile with better missile and I will add secondary MFC. Maybe going for what? 12 dmg or 9.

How can I lower maintenance need?  Not so worried because I use replenishment ships prior to battle. My jump tender is currently in shipyard and with better jump drive tech too. Still couple years before magnetic drive, already researched better power plants so these will be updated too before Majestic is ready for shipyard. Engine will be upgraded later when ship is ready. Building time is slow and I need more ships sooner than later to have poper fleet.

What should I do with the extra space? More guns? Range? Engineers?

Your maintenance is fine and you should not reduce armor.

For the new missiles warhead 9 is probably good, you'll be able to penetrate 3 deep.

I'd prioritize speed over bigger warhead on those missiles if you insist on keeping them. Right now, they won't get through a halfway decent PD screen, so making them do more damage is wasted effort.

I have not decied what to do with missiles. I might keep them, but update the missile. Here is faster version that I can build right now.

Quote
Missile Size: 5.0000 MSP (12.5000 Tons)    Warhead: 4    Radiation Damage: 4    Manoeuver Rating: 14
Speed: 32,560 km/s    Fuel: 1,688    Flight Time: 922 seconds    Range: 30.04 Mkm
Cost Per Missile: 5.42021    Development Cost: 542
Chance to Hit: 1k km/s 455.8%   3k km/s 151.9%   5k km/s 91.2%   10k km/s 45.6%   20k km/s 22.8%   50k km/s 9.1%   100k km/s 4.6%

Or if I research Fusion-Booster Fission warhead here's what I can get and also increase size to 6.

Either of those would be way better than what you currently have. Personally I would ditch the agility (you already have nearly 100% hit chance against your own ships...I tend to be more worried about overwhelming enemy PD than maximizing hit count) in favor of more engine.

The bigger warhead on the S6 is nice, but the missile is a lot slower and you'd launch 20% fewer of them. Again, overwhelming PD is critical and both of those facts indicate against the S6 missile.

Final version of the MAJESTIC battleship. Pride of the Navy.

Thank you very much for the help tweak it. This is SO MUCH better now. I did some research while designing, but basically this is the same as the first version. I'm so glad I didn't put resources to first version. Still learning I haven't made big warships.

Changes:

Big guns old had 4x6=24 lasers, now 26
Two more twin 10 cm lasers too.
More fire controls & search sensors, less range but more of them
26M 40k missile/torpedo

This is what we call a right proper battlewagon.

I LIKE. BIG. GUNS. AND I CANNOT LIE!

Sadly your guns aren't actually all that big. Still, there are a lot of them.

TL;DR needs bigger Dakka.

Small note you have recharge rate 8 for your twin 10cm lasers, that is 1 power per laser waited.  They do not benefit from a recharge rate of more than 3 as they can only fire every 5 seconds

20 cm will be refitted later. Yeah, I love big guns too. Fun to see how this will perform. This is like early 1900 battleships. Low range, not so huge guns etc. Best for the tech of the time and obsolete soon.

Built this just on time. After just 4 months Majestic was built, several unknown alien warships has been detected. They made provocative attack against my survey ship. Survey ship managed to escape and limp back to base. My patrol frigates are now fully deployed. One enemy was closing three frigates. To avoid further escalation they only used microwaves to fry enemy ship sensors. After this alien ship turned back and retreat.

Majestic is waiting for destroyer escorts and support ships and soon will be moving to the frontier. Huge logistic campaign has been launched to add logistic support for the fleet. Awesome. Btw, NPR is moving 3500-4200 m/s and at least one ship used missiles around 20m km range. I'm confident that I have better ships. New destroyer escorts are almost ready too and several new Tribal class corvettes. Microway weapon is added to lighter ships and new experimental Gauss PD. Destroyers and heavier ships use KE-15 and Z-10 lasers.

Oh boy, this will be fun.
