Thanks for the tips guys!
Meanwhile, captain Parmenter with F troop has engaged Pinky and the Brain's fleet near the enemies home world.
Due to crack crews and initiative advantage our glorious Second Kobold Empire forces enjoy a +3 to their initiative rolls.

Hopefully they invade the right planet this time! :roll:

After action report submitted by Captain Parmeter:
The enemy fleet was annihilated and Pinky and the Brain captured!
Glorious!
F troop lost one CT only. High speed and holding the initiative won the day.
However our communications computers seem to have gotten a virus.
NARF!
Pinky and the Brain have been placed in a cage and will be sent to the lab for analysis.
Our next target is the enemy home world!
NARF!

Greetings, We at ACME are proud to announce the opening of our new subsidiary Waynetech. We have a few items that you may find useful. First up, For the ACME form fitting bat suit, the utility belt. It's perfect for carrying things such as elastic weapons launchers, Illudium-236 explosive space modulators (handy for dealing with pesky Terrans), and Bat Mouse Repellent. It also holds a universal translator. Speaking of which, we have deduced the meaning of NARF. It seams to translate as "Holy Bat (fill in the blank)".

Alexei Timoshenko is the name of my protagonist in the fanfics, although I wish it could have been me.

Pinky: What are we doing tonight Brain?
Brain: Same thing we do every night Pinky, plotting to take over the Second Kobold Empire!

Rolled 100 on Z R&D, not so glorious :cry:

In other news, two form fitting bat suits, utility belts, elastic launchers and several space modulators are missing.

Turn 17:
Finally some good rolls, made EL3, got gunboats and plasma guns on line.
Here are some new ship designs:
CV(ca hull) SSSSSAAAAAQQJJJJJJ(CIC)(4xBga)PgJJQJJ 5/4 cost 839
CVL(cl hull) SSSSAAAAQQJJJJJJPgPg(CIC)(3xBga)JJQJJ 7/4 cost 687 fast hull
CTPg SAJJQPgPgPgJJ 8/3 cost 263 fast hull
ESPg SAJQPgPgJJ 9/3 cost 190 fast hull
I would be interested in any input on these designs. My thinking is having the fleet fight in three lines, Pg's in front followed by F armed ships then Pt. The carriers would be behind these lines.

One other question about gunboats. It appears to me that Gba can be armed with an internal and external at the same time. For instance with the weapons I have available, one Gba squadron could be armed with Pg and Pt. The Pt would be one shot only and then would have to be reloaded. Pg would be able to fire repeatedly. Do I have this right?

Those CV ships need to be fast ships to work, but I don't see that in their listing, nor do I see Launch Bays (Code BL), you've also forgotten to group the engines into drive rooms properly

Thanks tips SCC, guess that means one less squadron per ship :cry:
I agree with you on the CV, but can't build fast hull till EL4. I'll probably wait for that anyway since B hulls will also be available. Meanwhile I'll prototype the CA hull with an FT. Prototype on the cheap!

In other news:
Black and white bat seen flying around Waynetech lab last night. The cry "NARF, POINT" was heard.

Fast hulls are available one EL after the hull itself, so you're fine for a Fast CL hull

I'd also advise getting rid of the Pg, carriers have no business getting in close like that

Why do I see the 2nd Kobold Empire going the way of the first? I would recommend some exterminators to you, but I'm afraid that your problems could get worse. It seems that the senior partner has an irrational fear of southern rodents. He seems to think that they are all either very large or very fast. The junior partner is far more capable, but he's a bit young to be doing a job this complicated solo.
