I'd recommend NOT upgrading your Praes to U3

Spread -50%.  Yes, you can focus more on a target, but your splash from spread rockets will reach the center most of the time anyway.  Spread is GOOD for rockets and mortars, you want this as high as you can get it.  This will allow you to destroy more enemies while you are still out of their range, and adds to the effect of splash in this manner. The -50% spread is a nerf, not a buff...

Worz: Um... You're hiding behind a rock.
Me: I'd hide behind a preschool if I thought it would help

    I think the key from above is "most of the time". I think if you can reduce spread just enough to make it hit "all of the time", you would effectively kill your targets faster, thus reducing the battle time and subsequently the damage the enemy might do to your ships. Anyone that is truly concerned about the -50% spread could attempt to increase their splash values.

    I am looking at your "join date" and I will give you a pass.  But before you come on the forums and start spewing nonsense, you should learn to play the game.  With more spread, the lower the damage of the rocket or mortar.  For each distance that the rocket or mortar lands outside of target "zero", the lower the damage of the rocket or mortar.  I'm not gonna call you names other than ignorant, because in this manner...you lack of experience truly make you ignorant on the subject.

    Yes that would be what I and any other sane person would aim for. But from OP's POV, since he wants some amount of spread, I suggested Combustion System

    Go for it, just remember Upgrades are not reversible.

    I love it how you still think you are right and "on to something", even after multiple people with years more experience have told you otherwise.

    They also told me I was an idiot for putting Raptor launchers on Dragoons.  Have you seen what that does to a 131?  That is why they are being 'retired'...

    Yeah. It's not like mine have Specials that reduce Spread 56%. That would be crazy.
