or maybe more missile launcher hard points. You get the picture
As for what ships to pledge for... I'm curious as to why people are buying every ship that's available (reading the Nov. 26 "what ship to buy threads"). EVERY ship will be available in game, and most of them won't take very long to earn with credits, excluding the idris or course.
thats what retaliator is there for. there were concept arts where bomb bay was lowered from retaliator and a beam weapon was used to fire. it was refused because beam weapons cant be implemented as it would cripple the cryengine because of complexity of calculations. constellation would not be able to take the beating that it would get if it had to put itself into firing position. thats what retaliator is there for.
connie already has 6 missile mounts so it has 48 missiles, and thats in any case a lot, since most ships have only 4 missiles,
