Supporter is a fast and very maneuverable light assault ship. They are equipped with two rapid-fire short-range laser turrets. Useful for raiding the expanding constructors in the early-mid T1 stage. In higher numbers they can overpower heavier ships if your enemy doesn’t carefully micro them. Similarly to AK’s on land, corvettes pack a relatively high DPS, but only in close distance.
Tip: try to keep their broadside facing the enemy unit while attacking, to maximize damage. Turrets are not able to shoot over each other, so only one will be used when facing the enemy head-on.
