I was just wondering about the phobos:

1. Has no drone bay. - Ok lets start with the face that the dictor (eris) even has a drone bay (even though its small. Also it has more mass than the deimos so surely it can carry some on there.

2. The mass is greater than deimos - Ok its a tackler right (of sorts) and has more mass than deimos.

3. Where is the mwd bonous? - This should be there to help with mwd like the thorax and deimos. Hell all of them should have a mwd bonous.

4. The Desription - Ok I stated earlier that it had no drone bay. So ok according to the description of roden ship yards "Roden Shipyards tend to favor missiles over drones" it favours missiles over drones. I see neither.


Note this is not a whine.... some simple questions

Check the masses of all the HICs - they're all considerably heavier than their counterparts. They're not supposed to be fast ships. Likewise, the reason that the Phobos has no MWD bonus is, well, it can't really use that MWD when the warp disruption field is up...again, it's not really a ship meant to be zipping around the battlefield.

understandable but then surely it should tank a bit better more inline with the passive onyx

The drone bay was filled with high tech electronics to make the disruption field work. Hence no more drones but instead an increase in mass. Smile

It has about 100x more missile dps than drone dps. What are you talking about? =P

Seriously though, description has a c in it.
