Thanks for the advice, I've bought 2 Hawk Air warriors each equipped with 1 Lineage Plasma Cannon, 1 Lancer Laser and 1 Prophet missile array with a good amount of ammo.
I've equipped them with Missile Evasion Matrix and Heavy weapon control and SD special. To finance this I've sold 1 Hovercar and 4 hoverbikes.
My fleet now consists of 2 Hawk Air Warriors and 6 Hoverbikes.
And it got squashed
I've positioned my hawks and 2 of the hoverbikes at a building close to 2 dimension gates. The other 4 are positioned in a building close to the third dimension gate.
Then the attack comes. It consits of 2 green ships ( unshielded) which I haven't seen before and 2 ( shielded ) ships which I have captured and destroyed before, ain't sure of the name but I've got UFO type 1 to 6 already captured.
1 of the green comes out of the third Dimension gate and I order my 4 hoverbikes to attack it.
The other 3 ships comes out of the 2 dimension gates and I order my 2 hawks to attack the new ship while I send 1 hoverbike against the know ships to keep 'em busy.
The result is that I can bring down 1 of the grey ships. But my hawks and 3 of my hoverbikes are dead! That's 250 000 down the drain....
When I've replayed it, I didn't even bring down 1 ship....
I'm at a loss here, I've recently renewed my fleet with the strongest ships and weapons money can buy and it gets absolutely squashed
I figure I need atleast 2 more hawk warriors to lessen my losses, but I currently only got 20 000.
EDIT: After quite some replays I've managed to win. Only one hawk warrior and 2 hoverbikes are dead. But the problem remains, next attack I'll have even less to fend them off ...
