Ah. Strange, I'm pretty sure that worked when I was building it...

Mk III I have increased the missiles again, however this extra space allowed me to put in my Sea Sparrow AASRM. Just one of these took out two full blown Drakes (get this) in under 15 seconds. No, I'm not kidding!

Nice. I'll have a look at both and see how they compare. The Iron Devotion is the first faction you fight after all. Still, the improved missiles will help in its role as a bomber escort.

Yeah, I designed it to be a little similar to the Shrike, which does the same thing when damaged.

I wasn't really aware of how easily single pixel IRs give up on targets, I was mostly hoping that since they can't see in front of them they would be less likely to go off chasing flares (which wasn't the case)

Fireworks snipped

This is my Test fortress that spawns in the Designer, I forgot to take it out of play when I first did this so all three shrikes took the fortress on. They did innumerable passes and not a single one of those bombs made it through. If you want I can give you the blueprint for the Fortress (don't plan on using her in the campaign, while she COULD I honestly would be worried since one good shot can blow her to bits).

That's an impressive standard for LAMS Disco Missile Defense System.
