In the last 2 weeks i've grinded alot in FM and managed to get most blueprints to create a nice Inferno dragon. However im stuck between 2 designs, and can't choose.
Design 1 uses lowered explosive mount, which increase the speed to 70, but reduces the explosive range by 25%. Damage from design 1 is around 607k vs 551k damage from design 2. Also defence seems to have only a little difference (95% in explosive and penetration defence in design 1 vs 93% in design 2).
Design 2 replaces the lowered explosive mount with combustion system 2, increasing splash by an additional 60%. The movement speed of design 2 is 59.
Design 1 - Design 2
Damage: 607k - 551k
Defence: 95% - 93%
move speed: 70 - 59
expl. range: 30% - 55% (79.1 range - 105.4 range).
The ships will be used in FM, and will be driven manually.
What would you do, and why?
