The Supporter is a fast and very maneuverable light assault ship. They are equipped with two rapid-fire short-range laser turrets. Useful for killing expanding constructors in the early-mid T1 stage. Similarly to Grunts on land, Supporters pack a relatively high DPS, but only at close range.
Try to keep their broadside facing enemies while attacking to maximize damage. Their turrets are not able to shoot over each other, so only one will be used when facing the enemy head-on.
BAR's flanking damage rules allow Supporters to punch above their weight when used in numbers. Swarm heavier ships on multiple sides to multiply your damage.
