I have read ideas on the forum for things like cluster missiles to help battleships take out smaller ships such as frigates. When I have been in a PVP situation I have found that Frigates are not the problem, its drones and missiles.

Now I am not going to say nerf them but I would suggest adding a point of defence Weapon (gun). This turret would be the only turret that does not need a turret hard point for it to be fitted to.

Now I know that there are smart bombs but I find them ineffective and have had one of my ships blown up by a gang member using them.

The weapon once activated would lock incoming threats and open fire with a success rate based on skills. But it could only lock one threat at a time.

The idea is that this weapon was based on a multi-barrelled civilian gun, therefore no ammo required. Basicaly making them ineffective against ships such as frigates

Also with the right skills a ship could be fitted with these weapons to protect a fleet or a capital ship (i.e. Freighter or carrier).

For example a destroyer could be fitted with 7 of these weapons and a link that results in the ship staying with the capital ship and the weapon open firing on any threat targeting itself or the capital ship.

RIGHT CLICK target drone > F1 > DRONE DEAD

your problem solved.

But this is unnecessary.
