point defence and sol force leviathan

Post by orion1632 » Mon Apr 28, 2014 10:14 am

Why can't I mount any pd on my sol force leviathan ? I have red laser pd on every ship but can mount them on the leviathan.

I must be missing something.

Because it's a Leviathan. Those can't mount PD.

The carrier variants can but need combat escorts. Combat LVs need PD escorts. Protect those LVs! :D

Well, sending a carrier out without escorts would just be plain silly.

It should be noted that in a pinch, non-PD weapons can still be set to PD duty. Admittedly, watching an LV shoot down missiles with Meson Beams is a tad ridonkulus.

If you manage to get Variable Lasers or Variables Phasers you can place those in Medium slots for PD coverage.
