Suggestions / Re: piranha vs talons

Personally I find talons to be more of a liability early game, unless I can field about 4 of them escorting a single ship. In those numbers, they'll pretty much take on everything fairly nicely.

Maybe some auxiliary engines located where the rocket mounts used to be?

The thing is the Omen can be easily replaced by a more effective ship/fighters. Wasp wings or Xyphos wings do a great job escorting other ships, as well as other fighters. A Wolf class frigate can just about do the same thing, stick a few swarmers/barricades (if you have the mod) on it, burst pd lasers and it'll outdo an Omen.

You might as well make a ship without any weapons slots :/

A missile boat?! :D

Looking good! Seems like an armed tug or exploration ship to me...

Maybe controlling an asteroid field, resource rich area thing, could provide a sort of fixed income? Just small, but enough to make it worth while. Securing an asteroid field would require doing random tasks and what not?

The awkward moment when your Astral is halfway across the map from the carrier rally point, engaging an Onslaught.

Suggestions / Ramming?

I recently had the revelation that bumping into other ships will deal some damage, so I decided to actually try that as a tactic against the Onslaughts in the Hegemony Defense Force. It's pretty useful for bumping them away from my carriers, but I mean... IT DOESN'T DO DAMAGE!

I would understand that smaller ships wouldn't do too much damage bumping against another ship's hull/shield, but what about a cruiser? An Apogee with augmented engines slamming into the rear of an Onslaught does somewhere around 150-ish damage, tops. So... Why so weak? Collisions would seem like a much more interesting mechanic in the game if they did something else other than bump other ships.
