Need a ship with fast missile rack and a large missile slot
« on: January 13, 2020, 10:24:34 AM »

Greetings, so I wanted to test something silly with the Kadur's huge missile weapon, however I need a ship that has fast missile racks (or whatever that system is called which reloads missiles faster), has a large missile slot and most importantly has the lowest possible Deployment Points.
I'm playing with a lot of mods so you can also suggest one from a mod if it fits the description.

The Vindicator from Ship and Weapon Pack. It's a low-tech cruiser with a big gun and a big missile rack.

I tried the Vindicator however at 28 DP I can't really achieve the missile saturation I'm looking for, the canon was however surprisingly effective when used in large numbers. The ASS from HMI however is a very cheap destroyer costing only 7 DP, perfect for spamming.

After a bit of testing I must say that this tactic is surprisingly effective as long as you have a few ships that can hold the enemy at bay while the *** (really need to find another name, how about dromadary-X) keep firing their Jinn behind the rest of the fleet. However when the Jinn runs out of fuel or hits something the explosion is likely to kill anything near it including allies, so it's perfect. A stupid tactic that is as likely to get you killed as the enemy.
