So, I've been goofing around with Fac4 gunships lately. Making obscenely powerful cannons is a lot of fun, admittedly. But the recoil on them... my god.
The original design for this beast was the Warhawk 45 - a 4500p mid-sized ship with plenty of range and damage that could tear through Sentinel armor in seconds. If the Warhawk were able to stick around that long...
Which it couldn't, because the recoil thrust was enough to send it rocketing across the map in the opposite direction.

My solution?
Add more guns and point them backwards.

Equal and opposite reactions. Suck it, Newton.

Where did you get large F4 generators from? I thought they only had the tiny inefficient ones?

This sucker has been driving me nuts. It keeps its distance just fine, but almost never aligns itself with an enemy ship or shoots at it.
I have no issues building fast, maneuverable death-dealers in the 1500p-3000p range, but the art of the cheap mobile sniper eludes me.

More turning thrusters on the front. You want the ship to be able to do a nice sea-saw motion when it aims.
Turning thrusters on the front and back ends are more important that having thrusters in the middle section.

You also might want to get rid of the drone launcher.
You can use that P for more thrusters - keep your cost low. And, sometimes the AI doesn't shoot because it's using the drones rather than focusing on the gun.
