This is something I've been pondering for quite sometime, after seeing a screenshot of a level 9 salvage defended by 5 Draconian Mega Fortress, I have to honestly wonder...

What would defend a level 10? The Draconian Mega Fortress are the biggest and most well armed ships in the game, and if 5 defend a level 9 could their be anyway to make a level more well defended?

The only thing I could think of would be to give the 5 Draconian Mega Fortress even better weapons, perhaps top tier Draconian weapons like the Shock Wave Mortars or Siege Missiles.

What do you guys think?

By the way, for those who don't know what a Draconian Mega Fortress is its just my fan given name for the large Draconian ship that looks like a bigger Draconian Floating Fortress with 8 weapon hard points instead of just 6, and also has about 50% more armor than a normal Floating Fortress too.

    Ummm, actually I thought 9s were guarded by Battleships. The dracs actually have a bigger ship with 8 weapons on it that you see in 7s and 8s. I imagine that 10s will have more than 1 of these ultra badass ships.

    No, Battleships are the Draconian ships with 4 weapon slots, they aren't that powerful and you see them in most Draconian Fleets level 5 and up. Draconian Mega Fortress are the ones with 8 weapons, and 5 of them guard level 9 fleets, or at least from the screenshots I've seen they do.

    battleships have 6 weapons.. your thinking of the battlecruiser which has 4 weapons.

    and 5 battleships guard lvl 9s.

    You are incorrect. I have fought every level salvage except for 10+

    7s contain an 8-wep ship (Drac Megaship) and 4 Drac Marauders (3-wep ships).
    8s contain an 8 wep ship (Drac Megaship) and 2 Drac Battlecruisers (4-wep ships) and 2 Drac Marauders (3-wep ships).
    9s contain five Drac Battleships (6-wep ships)

    I call them Battleships because they are the EXACT ship you got from winning RR4. Battlescruisers (4-wep ships) were the reward of RR3. So the names I chose for those two are not arbitrary. They have ACTUAL hull names. The 8-wep, 3-wep, 2-wep and 1-wep ships are unnamed atm, but no known salvage level posses 5 of the biggest drac ship.

    Ok, aefi and Man Tim, you both got it part wrong.

    Battleships have 6 weapons, Battlecruisers have 4 weapons.

    Since the 7s have: 6-wep + 4 x 3-wep they have ONE BS in them
    Since the 8s have: 8-wep + 2 x 4-wep + 2 x 3-wep they have TWO BCs in them
    Since the 9s have: 5 x 6-wep they have FIVE BSs in them.
