I do think I'll be making a different ship though because this one doesn't have as much fire power as I'd like. Only one way to find out, which is make a ship with more big guns and see what happens.


[Major Edit] Second ship is being worked on.

Do both positions count as 'external', or just the side mounted ones? (And would the rear mounted paddles count if I made them bigger to stick further up and out behind the craft?)

Nice ship Mr. Fox! I’d have to agree with you though, it does look small with less firepower than anticipated. I’m guessing you used a lot of heavy armor?

With a few direct feeds and/or an autoloader with 4 racks, each gun can’t be that expensive.

I actually put the heavy armor on essentially last. It's quite a tall ship. There's several ammo spots and the main and secondary AIs are surrounded in 3 layers of metal armor, as well as the rest of the ship. And the two big turrets are 3 layers of metal armor, with the front layer replaced by HA to try and boost protection. (Haven't actually tested yet. |D Gonna do that against The Red Wing when it's finished)

The front turret is purely direct feed. As in a single ammo insterter thingy mabob. The rest of it is a weird set up to fit it into a 3x3 gap for some of the ship and then into a 5x5 turret spinner. I thought the ship was well armored, but... not really. And it turns out I can't replace most of it with metal either. Well. I might for the bottom, but I can't for the top (yet) because the thing tips a TON when turning due to how high the CoM is.

I’m not surprised you have a high CoM! A lot of your guns are built high up and that heavy armor on the turrets don’t help much. Lowering the upper-most guns may help so the barrels only just hang over the front turret.
