have vms ever stopped you from killing a base with a siege cannon hh fleet or any good base fleet for that matter?
my answer is no ive never been kept out of a base due to vms.. vms make a difference 100%-83%.. bout 17% difference dmg only.. the res is still taken with or without vms... please explain to me why everyone is acting like they wish to jump off the nearest bridge..

My guess is that there will be an improvement of performance if you spread them around. I just havent tried it yet. I refitted this one first since it had no armor and was basically there to be a cargo ship. I didn't want to refit a useful ship for testing purposes.
Can you offer any details of the tests you have done?

The answer is yes. Generally my siege cannon fleet can cope with two or 3 howies. Decent bases have 4-6 nowdays and when that happened I'd be borrowing bunker busters from friends if i wanted to get in.. Now if I can take 3 of 4 of those howies from range with my mortar fleet for no little punishment on my fleet then I'm going to be laughing all the way to the bank and those tough bases just became faceroll. Vm's were always a tool to force people to sail into your howies or die in mortar rain.
Now with the addition of one ship based weapon one of my most effective strategic platforms has been declared useless. It gives me little faith that the developers actually have a clue about the game play. I'm just waiting for them to mount anti-missile weapons next and then people can just come and grab resources for zero fleet damage with their 85% ballistic defence ships.

Tested this today. Four Hailstorm-Cs spread out on 4 ships. If all ships are stacked directly on top of each other then they seem to all fire at once at the 1st mortar in range and accuracy hitting any following mortars is greatly reduced. However when barely spreading out the ships, roughly the height of the health bar, the Hailstorms fired a second behind each other and overall accuracy was drastically increased.
