Best SRS configuration for Regent Carrier

Recommended Posts

What configuration of SRS do you consider the best for the Hawker Industries carrier?

The first, I'm gonna use it with 2 resolute as escort.

I'm thinking about use 6 bombers and 2 support shuttles.

Maybe less bombers and use interceptors? Better fighters than bombers?

So much depends on the configuration of the rest of the fleet and points values that it can be difficult to assign a specific build.

A fleet at higher points and a Ryushi Battlecarrier in the mix will be different from a low point fleet with a Terran Marshal in it, for example.

If you're paying the points for escorts, you probably shouldn't bother with interceptors or fighters. The former are defensive, and since you're paying points for defensive smalls, spending even more points on defensive factors raises the question of why you're bothering to bring this model in the first place. Its primaries - even if upgraded to nuclear - aren't all that impressive, its torpedoes are nothing to write home about, and the cyberwarfare weapon - while a neat trick - isn't enough to justify the model on its own. So, if you aren't going to focus on offensive SRS, what's the point?

 

So, that abstract discussion aside, I actually like your initial idea. A big beefy token with 6 bombers is pretty scary to damn near anything in the game, and with Weapon Shielding standard on your battleship, available on the carrier, and available on your cruisers, a smart opponent is going to focus on killing your crew (if possible). In my last game with my Sorylians against the Directorate, I really wish I'd brought some support shuttles, as the only thing reducing the effectiveness of my battleship was CP loss, all the way up until the end of the game.

Sorry, I forgot to say I'm playing only with Hawker

At 900

- Battleship with cyberwarfare and Ops center

- Carrier with Cyberwarfare and weapon shielding and two cruiser with weapon shielding

- 3 cruiser with weapon shielding and nuclear turrets

- 2 x 2 frigates

At 1000 points:

+ Nuclear Turret and +1 hp to Battleship, with 2 escort

+ Nuclear turret and +1 hp to carrier, with nuclear turret on both cruisers also.

I like this idea. I haven't tried or seen tried the cyberwarfare. Also not sure on the 2 X 2 frigate squadrons. My own experience is full squadron or your toast ;) Let us know how it goes.

I'm sure his going to combine them into 1 squadron after game starts.
