I've gotten a few games under my belt and I can't quite figure out the best use for these new corvettes. In their info card, it says they are good vs pretty much everything. Lets start off with a few basic questions.
What kinda of armor and damage type do they do? light armor and anti-medium damage? Is that close? Which leads to the next question.
What type of ships deal the most damage against corvettes and what ships do corvettes get bonus damage against?
I see the way they fight is similar to strike craft. They do strafing runs then turn around and fly away, then repeat. Does this quick movement make them hard to target for some other frigates or cruisers that can only shoot straight ahead? Most ships sit still while firing, so could this movement let them evade getting hit?
They also seem very quick. They can chase down retreating ships without mercy. They line up for phase jumps quickly and will outrun everything else in the game. Then their weapons can slow down enemy engines so the rest of your fleet can catch up.
How good would they perform as scouts compared to the real scout frigate? besides not having auto explore.
