Dear CIG, @YogiKlatt-CIG
I am quite concern with the current damage reduction in the Sledge III weapon being over done. I feel that it does not even deserve to be a weapon size 3 anymore and rather not competitive with other weapons of the same size.
I personally request a reconsideration because they now perform as if it was a Size 2 weapon and it feels not as rewarding when FIXED weapon is already hard to hit on its own + the new FM
(Turantura Mark III has even more damage…)
Both of these 2 factors will already help negate the effect of the damage you dont have to over nearf the damage to get the balance result I personally feel piloting skill and Aiming skill will already do its job and offset the high damage it provides.
Please consider reverting it back to the 3.10.0o PTU.5702746 Patch
the S3 Sledge was nerfed because it showed a tendency to be OP in our metrics. If it is now underperforming we will see that as well and balance it out in the opposite direction. This is always an ongoing process so none of the current weapon values should be considered final. We will indeed do very heavy changes in all vehicle guns with the upcoming capacitor systems that were briefly mentioned here: https://robertsspaceindustries.com/comm-link/transmission/17647-Flight-Fight-Upcoming-Improvements
