Right, yep. And now the armor value in that formula will be max(armor, baseArmor * 0.05) instead.
The minimum damage is going to seriously reduce the damage done by low per shot weapons... like lmg's and vulcans.
As much as that's true, I think it probably affects stuff like the needler (and indeed lmgs more than it does the vulcan. The vulcan's insane vs-hull dps becomes merely very high.
Is Advanced Optics going to get an OP price decrease like DTC and ITU?

1) Can I get the .csv file IDs for the heavy mortar, hammer barrage, and devastator cannon?
heavymortar, hammerrack, and devastator
2) Only if spoiler-free answers are possible of course: the new fighter hull IDs?
Not possible, I'm afraid
