Don't send the destroyers in close until the bases are pretty well trashed, just about anything they have will outrange our plasmas.

I knocked up a quick anti-fighter design;

Magazine 12

32 EP Magneto-plasma Drive (2) Power 32 Fuel Use 336.02% Signature 32 Exp 20%
Fuel Capacity 250,000 Litres Range 27.1 billion km (48 days at full power)

Size 2 Box Launcher (6) Missile Size 2 Hangar Reload 15 minutes MF Reload 2.5 hours
Missile Fire Control FC22-R5 (1) Range 22.5m km Resolution 5
Size 2 Anti-ship Missile (6) Speed: 28,800 km/s End: 8.4m Range: 14.5m km WH: 4 Size: 2 TH: 172/103/51

Missile to hit chances are vs targets moving at 3000 km/s, 5000 km/s and 10,000 km/s

This design is classed as a Fighter for production, combat and maintenance purposes


Tech level is a good bit higher than what we have, but the general concept is something weighing about 500 tons with a missile fire control and a shitload of box launchers. I envision sticking small sensors on the missiles so you can just dump a shitload into a group of fighters without worrying about targeting. Size 4 warhead ensures that at least 1 damage will go through armor on the first hit, but might not be practical with lovely tech.

Except we're already struggling for manpower. Throwing people into a pit seems a little...wasteful.

We'd only need a thousand people, probably less, to get a genetically viable population on a colony ship. Just make sure the aren't all the Martian Habsburgs and we'll be fine.

How do stealth and signal dampeners work in Aurora? I believe I remember the IC had some ships that appeared tiny until we blew up the device that was masking them.

Percentage reduction of signature. 75% is the earlier cloaking tech, which would mean these ships are actually 4,000 tons (but early cloaking devices are huge and have a high minimum size so probably not that specific case).

Do the Pit pickets appeal to the Terran ships in Nova Sol for assistance? Yes, unless they're hardliners

Does Sebmojo push forward to engage the Terran ships without waiting for Fourth Fleet?
No, we should concentrate our forces to minimize losses

Does Mars command request that parts of the Ranginui fleet withdraw to Sol? No
