I really shoud have brought this up a long time ago. But the way bombers and strike craft interact with fighters just doesnt make much sense.
I was playing the campaign with a carrier fleet. Fighting Imps that were carrier heavy themselves.
Fighters shred ordnance. Why are bombers and strike craft dog fighting?
Bombers and strike craft need to ignore interceptors and continue to perform their purpose and that is to drop bombs and get troops on enemy craft.
Rework fighters to behave similarly to how cruisers with their Point defence guns function and make em chase bombers instead of tying them up.
Fighters should only break the chase if hostile fighters are close and let them dog fight. That's how we can make ordnance function properly amd make bombers and strike craft actually semi decent. Cause in its current state 2 fighter squads will absolutely shut down 4 bomber squads and that's why carriers will never be viable cause they are too easy to shut down.
