So really liking the ability for the PA to focus on the fleet and on fighters. Coupled with some noice later Capital ships in terms of versatility I am enjoying them and the concept. HOWEVER.
I really seem to be getting minimal returns from my fighters. Clearly I need some advice
Currently my distribution is an early rush to Tie Interceptors and Skipray Blastboats (given the number of fighters available to all PA ships as well as large hanger reserves this seems reasonable?).
Current fleet distribution is 66% Tie Interceptors to 33% Skipray's
In combat I rapidly have my fleet target and knock off the enemy AA frigates, they simple do such a HUGE amount of damage that it seems pointless to field fighters without negating them first. Perhaps that is just my perception however? My bombers will have remained in my hangers. Interceptors will have been micro'd away from enemy AA frigates but picked on enemy squadrons as much as possible. Then they will assist where possible.
Afterward AA frigates are down I launch my skiprays.
It is here I seem to struggle. I now have fighter superiority and clear skies from AA frigates. However the effect my bomber squadrons are having is fairly minimal.
What am I doing wrong guys? Or are fighters in the mod just not worth it to this level. Seems likely it is me and not the mod as you guys are fairly consistent with Star Wars lore and obviously fighters were a serious serious threat to the capital ships in Star Wars when utilised correctly.
