Maybe make a Drone ship type?

I was thinking about the game a little bit and it has a lot from ships with big guns to snipers, I was thinking instead of a carrier like I have seen posts about since they would be dread size and big targets maybe a drone boat with unique drones that you can send after people. Maybe like a set of suicide drones that act like missiles but are very quick and can also get shot down if someone is paying attention. Maybe sentry drones can be your special like the sniper it drops two sentries that auto target in range but do a good amount of damage. maybe even support drones that you can use them to boost someones shields for a moment longer.

What do you guys think?

A pretty cool idea, I can Imagine this ship "pooping" a lot of tesla pods out which are electrifying enemys.

Here a cool picture. Could look a bit like this

I like it! I would say more on the medium class of ship, after all hauling the drones would be heavy smile

i doubt DN will put anything resembling a carrier in the game due to the fact they replaced battle ships from their role.

the game is called Dreadnought after all so think WW1 era ships.

I've always loved the idea of carriers, or just ships that are even LARGER than Dreadnoughts. But honestly, I don't think we'll ever see an alternative class that's larger than a Dreadnought. Dreadnoughts were / are meant to be the shining stars in the Dreadnought universe, and I feel if a larger ship existed then suddenly the Dreadnoughts wouldn't feel quite as prevalent.

If we're talking drones the ships really don't have to be very large. You could make the "Carrier" about the size of a Medium Destroyer and it's not like it'd break immersion or be unrealistic.

I think a sub-Dreadnought class ship that is a carrier would be amazing. It could be the heaviest form of middle armour, like a support destroyer.

What you're thinking of are Escort Carriers and I think they would make a perfect addition. All the fun off carrier ops without the ability to nullify the existence of Dreadnoughts by filling the skies with bombers.

They also need to find their lace in the Calculus Wheel of the classes.

Currently it's
Destroyers > Tacs > Corvettes > Arties > Dreads > Destroyers

Going with the historical balance, maybe something like
Destroyers > Tacs > Corvettes > Arties > Carriers > Dreads > Destroyers
But you have to make dreads a little less weak to arties then. Longer range / projectile speed would do it.

The other possibility would be (ahistorically)
Destroyers > Carriers > Tacs > Corvettes > Arties > Dreads > Destroyers
And this one would need less of a redo from scratch - making the drones/fighters weak against perimeters (that arties have access to, but Tacs don't) make the wheel balanced (destroyers had a limited upper hand against tacs anyway).

I like where this is heading, now we just need a dev on board
