Thanks! Hmm, I think I understand. So would I be better going for damage (Strike/Assault Missiles) instead of anti-missiles because I only have Phalanx 2 and Countermeasure System 2? Lol, I just realised I thought it was spelt "Phlanax", silly me
Some phalanx are better than no phalanx. It just means that you will get hit by more missiles than someone with bigger phalanx and CMS
Your accuracy would be Phalanx 2 - engine 3 + CMS 2 --> 55-20+30 = 65% accurate
65% aint bad.. in school, all you needed was 60% to pass your test... :p
It is still a good place holder before you win the phalanx 3 and CMS3
I did a little test yesterday... very non scientific !!!
I have a AA battery MCX
It has Strike system+ 5x phalanx 3 + countermeasure 3
In the fleet there was another MCX fitted with 2x phalanx...
I went up against 55 elite salvage
The last 2 BS in the fight have 6X assault missiles each
that makes 12 missiles every 3 seconds.
With both ships together, 4-5 missiles get trough for every enemy salvo.
When I removed the small phalanx 1 on the 2nd ship, I tried hitting the same 55..
The 1st draconian salvo was entirely destroyed. Then, the second salvo was only half destroyed becuse it got caught reloading halfway in. So 6 missile gets trough every 2nd shot...
My initial theory is somehow confirmed... phalanx with less accuracy mess with the effectiveness of the more accurate ones.
