Can anyone tell me what the "Damage" stat in the shipyard (or when you hover over a ship in a fleet) means?
Is it the initial damage dealt when a ship comes into range?
I'm thinking that if a ship has weapons that all have the same reload time, then that damage stat is the amount of damage given every time the ship fires. But because it would be difficult to show a damage number if weapons of differing reload times were on the ship, it's just easier to show a number on the first firing.
Yes? No? Am I completely off?
