Prospective Posted March 17, 2005 Report Share Posted March 17, 2005 More questions about shipboard weapon systems and defensive systems designed to counter them (rock paper, scissors as expressed in an earlier post). I've seen descriptions for weapons systems that I think are the same and it has confused me. Maybe someone can help clarify. Items like projectile weapons, coherent beam weapons, energy discharge, frost bolt, sonic and fighter/drones are pretty straightforward. However, what is the difference between a missile and a torpedo? When you have a description of a CIDS, it says it's effective against missile/fighter/drone. Does it also affect Torpedo's? What counters torpedo's? What is the difference between a "plasma splash" weapon system and a "fusion blast"? EDAC can defend against "fusion blast" and flux capacitors protect against "plasma splash", which implies they are different heat based systems altogether. Is that true, are they 2 separate "heat tech" systems? Is there more than one cold system (frost bolt and ....?). What is an example of a "particle beam" weapon system? EDAC can defend against them, but what weapon system is it defending against? What's the difference between a magnetic grapple and a tractor beam? Thanks.
