How to use in your fleet
While tractor beam turrets are effective against small enemy ships, anything starship-sized or larger is immune to tractor beams, making these almost a requirement for a good defense. They are especially important against exogalactic waves, which tend to be made up of large, fast units that will happily charge right through your defenses on their way to your home planet.
For maximum effectiveness, instead of placing them directly in the path of incoming waves, try placing them to either side so that they are as far away from the enemy as possible. This way shorter-ranged ships will not be able to shoot them, allowing them to live longer. This is especially effective when combined with a Radar Jammer II in the system.
