Weapon Technical Details


Starships —> Weapon Technical Details
Starships have access to the following weapons systems:

Torpedoes can only be transferred to a starship with a torpedo tube of a matching tech level. To build a torpedo, it is necessary to have 1 KT each of Duranium, Tritanium and Molybdenum, in addition to the MegaCredits listed in the table below. Torpedoes of any tech, up to the torpedo tech of the starbase, can be built on a starbase. In addition, any starship with torpedo tubes may build torpedoes for its tubes.

The damage done to an enemy target is measured in two different ways: destructive power and killing power.

Destructive power (Blast) is a measure of how much damage can be done to the shields, superstructure, engines and weapon systems of an enemy ship.

Killing power (Kill) is a measure of how deadly the weapon is to the crew of an enemy ship. If all of the crew of a ship is killed, that ship is rendered helpless and is captured.

Every torpedo has about a 65% chance of hitting its target. Torpedoes do twice their rated damage against shields.

An external and unofficial table that is stored on this site provides some insight into actual damage points inflicted by certain classes of torpedoes on various vessels. It is incomplete but still gives enough information to put things into perspective. It's posted by courtesy of Cpt. Spiff.
