Playing the classic campaign, I’m around bridge of sighs and It seems whenever I scramble my interceptors and attack bombers, they get ripped to shreds by enemy heavy corvettes almost instantly.
Now, if I let my destroyers take out the corvettes, and send my own multi-gun corvettes after the fighters, I find the same happening to the enemy. They get picked off one by one, and my corvettes return to the carrier with minimal damage.
Are Fighters obsolete at this stage or am I just doing it wrong? My carrier strike group consists of two carriers loaded with multiguns and salvettes, escorted by a handful of destroyers and cruisers, with an unholy amount of captured support frigates healing everything.
My destroyers take out corvettes, I scramble multiguns to keep fighters away, and my cruisers tank hits while my salvettes move in, and blow up anything they can’t get their claws around. But I can’t seem to find a good use for fighters, am I just wasting resources?
