So I'm officially starting this as a log. Battlefleet Rafos.

And I know there is no carrier capacity here at all... I prefer playing the gunline, and have a few tactical tricks up my sleeves to deal with fighters and bombers.

Generally the Archduke and Yellow Sqadron will hang together, throwing fighters and bombers at the enemy fleet and getting in the way of ordinance. The Indominatable and Red Squadron will hand back and torpedo a hole into the enemy line (with some help from Blue Squadron's Nova Cannons). At that point Thunderchild and Blue Sqadron will scream into the gap and open up broadside before peeling away across the back of the enemy fleet. the three squadrons of Sword Frigates are there to stop harrasing fire and flankers, as well as protecting the carriers and the other firegroup.

So, whaddya think?
