Turn the destroyer into a drone w/ a 75m^3 size. When launched it "escorts" your ship as it moves about the battlefied. It has a point defense system specifically designed to shoot at fighters/ fighter bombers. I now turn this idea over to any and all ridicule. Razz

Destroyers are already not bad at killing fighters, but destroyers are weak and get killed easily, so no, sorry, that drone bay would just hold expensive shiny drones that would be left on the battlefield.

You're not going to be efficient in a fleet if alot of your pilots are hopping into destroyers to shoot down fighter bombers. You're better served if those pilots are in just about anything else.

If you turn them into a super heavy drone that doesn't eat up a pilot slot you'd see them out on the battlefield doing what they're supposed to do - warding off smaller threats.

It's a not so subtle nerf to fighter bombers and supercarriers. And it fixes a ship class with a horribly small niche. Cool

You have obviously never flown destroyers, they are bad-ass.

You don't know me that well. They're good for solo roaming/skirmish warfare. Or the occasional lolfleet. That is a small niche. Take them on any kind of roam and they pop when looked at.

Destroyers only really shine in solo missions and ratting, especially when accompanying your battleship in nullsec sites. PvP, nope. Destroyers can't tank for pennies.

Yeah, Somal flys them like a champ:

Not sure why Somal comes to F&I just to troll.

Destroyers in the PvP sense are a novelty item. There was a time I could hop into an arty thrasher, go soloing, and literally get rushed by interceptors that had no knowledge of my ship's capabilities. That hasn't happened in a long, long time. They need a makeover in the worst way.
