We thought of that. Basically over Beta the fleet overall will get bigger better ships and we're hoping we have far more capitol ships in the future. In the meantime we intend a backlines bombing campaign to weaken enemy forces while all of that is happening.
Yeah, I've been advocating for a Jeune École-like focus for a while in other threads with Jack and Deathcall. I'm to the point where I see our Frigates and Destroyers as how we protect our rear areas while we attack down the Nul/Oberon-Caliban-Orion axis (with the bulk of our small craft), and as fulcrums during the initial advance into Virgil. Once Orion is secured, then we hit Tiber from three directions. But, point being, I believe that the bulk of the heavy lifting will be done by our bombers..
Considering we have 690 bombers(Counting only variants kitted with torpedoes.) atm and 126 capital ships with a total of 8958 ships this is pretty accurate being roughly 10% of our forces. Additionally I suspect the Polaris Corvette to be able to fulfill both roles when it is released since it is described as a large PT Boat with excellent ASA battery coverage by Ben Lesnick.
I think part of the concern of a Polaris could be mitigated by having NPC's in the non-critical roles, but it comes down to the cost/benefits comparison of a ship that large, and having a Carrier to bring in bulk fighter/bomber squadrons.
Btw @Diamondback Tayac is a UEE system. There's no need to go through Xi'an space to get there, there's a large jump point to there from Terra. Did you mean another system?
