Most Master of Orion 2 guides I have seen focus on just a few typical ship designs like:
- classic beam ship
- classic hit and run missile carrier
- classic assault ship with much defense and star troopers that is used to capture enemy ships
What are some ship designs good for defending planets together with star bases / battle stations / star fortresses + on-planet defensive structures like planetary missile bases / fighter garrisons / ground batteries?
I was thinking about a ship with good defense and torpedos (since they are unlimited, unlike missiles), but this is just a preliminary thought.
Any other creative designs good for this purpose?
