Hi Guys. Still loving this game but still a relative newbie, although up to level 12 now. :)

I've got this objective to cover and to be frank, I'm finding it very difficult as the enemy ships seem much higher in level to me although I'm informed the (7) on the planet map indicates a level 7 'player' (or computer controlled whatever they're called :)) and possibly shooting missiles at me as all my ships are getting killed very quickly despite me having relatively good armour and weapons - or at least I think so. 

Can anyone kindly give me some good, easy to understand tips or solution to the best way of completing this objective please? Unfortunately the tutorial doesn't seem to cover this. :(

Thanks, Nick

    Nick you have to avoid the missiles by moving your ships away from them. Its tricky at first, but once you learn how its easy.

    LVL 7 Cargo doesn't have missiles? The longbow's railguns are the main problem.

    He's talking about the railguns. I was too.

    Ah railguns, yes that would be it. So what level of shielding would be best to neutralise that do you think? And what ships/weapons would you use to beat a longbow? I'm hoping to build some of those of my own once I've upgraded the necessary base items to do that. :P

    Nick, Longbows are slow, weak, and big.

    Just use strafe to dodge the shots and try to get some shots in, because Longbows have just 40 HP without armor.

    I'm pretty sure you have Harrier Frigates by now, so maybe you can strike back with your own railguns, or learn how to rotate your ships to bombard them with Pulse lasers.

    Scatter Missiles are also effective in destroying small ships.

    a fleet of genesis will take care of 1-10 planet cargos easy, beam laser 1 and scatter mssl 2.

    You can beat it with 2 Harriers. Install shields. I prefer Beam-lasers over anything else.

    line the harriers up so both are basically toughing one infront, one behind lined up with the enemy fleet. Select both and move towards the enemy. Then when the rails fire, you strafe side to side. Dodging the rail guns. The guns fire to where your trajectory WILL take you, not to where you are.

    So if your strafe direction is UP the rails will fire to where you will be if you continue that path. Then you strafe down, missing the rail fire..

    Repeat this process.

    You can also do this with more than 2 harriers. Just have multiple groupings of 2 all faced the enemy fleet. And you can strafe the group as a whole dodging the rails if you leave 2 ship widths between each pair of 2.

    Personally, I think that this strategy is amazing, but hard to execute.

    Anyone who is L21 will have already implemented their own longbows, genesis, and harriers to aid them in combat.

    I can personally rid a L7 fleet using a single Talon with no damage.

    But that's not all I do. I attack Antimatter Cargoes and fleets up to L17 with barely any loss.

    I guess I'm just scared of VEGA Cargoes, because I am just a L24...

    The 2 Artilery Railgun are the problem.
    First:try to destroying the small ship with cruiser.
    Second:Avoid the Cruiser from Artilery range.
    Third :use Frigate to flanking the artilery(right click on the space,while avoiding railgun),and you just defeat them.
