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.
