Here's the Omega VIII.V:

Hear, hear!

Quality over quantity. Most of my custom ships have four launchers, but all of them have at least two stealth modules. It keeps them from seeing you too quickly, and it cuts down on the enemy spraying you with Daycorns from two screens away.

I know the appeal of a big freaking tank, believe me. I played those ships almost exclusively in CM 3.0, but since 4.0 introduced the stealth module, the game gets SO much more exciting. It's a lot of fun to do more killing with less ship.

I always stick my allies with good radars, so they make up for the radar deficiency. I never find stealth very useful as once the enemy sees you they always know where you are.

Shields are more useful than stealth or manuever because otherwise a stray missile or a concentration of fire can take you out, whereas mega armor will make sure you survive. The only thing is, you have to know how to use it right. For a tank, it has quite a bit of manuever, and can avoid taking too many hits. You have to avoid being careless, as 8 super shields on each side can make you a bit cocky...

Also, after realizing more than 4 repair bots does you little good, I reduced it to 6 on the Omega VIII.V and upgraded the manuever.

Stealth is not something I want at the stage of the game im at, if im stealthed the enemy will not see me, therefore they wont fire missiles at me, therefore they will fire at something else, wingmen, starbases, important objectives etc.

My ships agile enough to dodge all but the daycorn and is fully loaded with armour should a few stray missiles come my way. I want them to fire at me because i can take the shots, things like the coloniser, trainee pilots etc cannot and they must be protected. Still my tactics might change as each mission includes more and more warriors...
