In BFG:1 inside an battle there was a way to see each ships weapon layout including their ranges which allowed a player to easier set up engagement ranges.
In BFG:2 we need to remember what ranges and indeed what armament a certain ship carries in order to set up this engagement range. I think it would be much better if some changes to the UI were made so that we can see the weapons inside an battle.
Especially if the Imperial Compaign contains 3 factions which amounts to a lot of vessels, players new to the game are going to struggle to learn all the battery ranges at first.
Another issue is, it is much harder to see which weapon modules are critically damaged now aka which side batteries are dead.
Last thing is, that the engagement choice in the UI doesn't say what range it is, only describes it as medium, long etc. A tooltip has to be added that says that medium range 9000 units etc. I hope you find this insightful.
