Looking over killboards, many readers have sent emails and msn convoes, why the hell IT Alliance keeps requesting shield tanked battleships for the operations with INIT against StainWagon.
Seeing shield tanked apocs, abadonns, megathrons and rokhs made many of you question the sanity of IT command. We reserached little bit about the topic and brought you the best possible answer to that.Read the whole thing. Then ask yourself, what is the best ship for using long range turrets and having a passive shield tank buffer? Apoc? Not enough mid slots. Megathron? Not enough mid slots. Maeltrom? Active shield tanking bonus.
Nope, the Rokh beats them all with the 5% bonus to resistances per level, lots of mid slots, and the optimal range bonus means less effort to shot higher powered armour further. If this trend continues, Rokh armies could be around the corner....
One can dream.
