Question about ship sections, armor and DN's

Post by CannibalBob » Thu Jan 07, 2010 1:12 am

If a certain section of a DN has lower armor (eg. magneto-ceramics on the middle section but adamantite on the front and rear), can I actually destroy that ship faster in tactical battles by specifically targeting the midsection, or does it still not matter where I shoot?

AFAIK it depends on whether you are using weapons that can be deflected by that armour. On a DN, all hit points are created equal, but sections that have less armour will still reflect less.

it is also good to see if you use Heavy Drivers lesser amoured sections have a much smaller chance reflect the shots so they have an weak spot there...
