But the whole point with gunboats is that they are not 'true' starships anyway.


But the argument is that the gunboats firepower is equivalent to a small starship.

Which is why I chose a fleet carrier instead of gunboats. IF gunboats could get worked out and fit for both fleet and squadron by corporate (i.e., SVC, et al) then I would like to play them, but I am not going to hold my breath on this one.

So is the close-range firepower of a squadron of Stinger-2s.


Gunboats don't have to fit the exact mould of ships or fighters - they can be unique.



Oh, and to re-raise the question - would MWPs be thrown in with gunboats, fighters, or put somewhere else?

Most likely there will be no fleet scale gunboats. You will just have half as many of the same-size gunboats in fleet scale. With so many "single box" systems, I don't see much choice around that. I also don't much of an issue with it, either.

As far as tenders go, again if tenders are necessary, I imagine they will simple scale along with how gunboats are implemented.
