How to use in your fleet

Summary of possible configurations:

  • Any module slot can be occupied by a some kind of gun (machine gun, laser, shotgun) that efficiently inflicts engine damage on many fleet ships.
  • All Riot Control Starships can replace up to [Mark level +1] guns with forcefields.
  • Mark Is can mount up to two Riot Control Tractors instead of guns or forcefields.
  • Mark IIs can mount one Riot Control Tazer instead of a gun or forcefield.
  • Mark IIIs can mount up to two Riot Control Tractors instead of guns or forcefields, and up to a total of two Riot Control Tractor IIs, Riot Control Grav Tazers, and/or Riot Control Grav Generators instead of guns or forcefields.

What Riot Control Starships lack in firepower, they make up in utility. A group of Riot Control Starships can effectively neutralize a large chunk of the AI's fleet, and can dramatically increase the effectiveness of a wormhole chunk by knocking out the engines of enemy ships as they come through the wormhole.

That said, they're not cheap, and usually need to be supplemented with additional firepower to actually kill the fleet.
