Fighter Carriers

From Outscape Wiki

Fighter Carriers are a type of ship weapon that launch fighter squadrons to attack the enemy during Fleet Battles.

  • Carrier modules must first be unlocked through the relevant research.
  • Carrier modules can only be fitted to Battleship and Dreadnought-class ship hulls, using their Large Weapon hard-points.
  • A fighter squadron will launch, attack, then return, repeatedly for the duration of a fleet battle. They are single-target weapons that deal burst damage once per flight.
  • Carrier modules are powered entirely from the host ship's Ship Power, and do not consume Ship Ordnance, making them similar to Energy Weapons.
  • Fighter attacks bypass Shields, just as Ordnance Weapons do.
