Can the Facist D19 and Sabers pop or trg without fuel ??

Problem, while towing D19 with a mass of 103 (they didnt fight my cubes and i had primary enemy set and mission kill) i suffered damage as they exploded.

Cant have been any cloaked ships feeding them fuel as i was towing thru overlapping minefields.

Thanx for your assistance.

ps Merry Xmas and a Happy New Year to you and yours

Of course they can

only the missions (not the beam up/gather missions) need fuel.

So if you set your popper to "pop" it will explode no matter what happens. If you set the ship to "trg" and to mission "kill" to avoid ANY cloakers you need fuel since the mission "kill" requires at least 1kt fuel. If you just want to kill pesty privs and set the ship to "trg" and the primary enemy to "privateers" you don't need fuel and the ship will still explode when a cloaker owned by the privateers arrives.

As usual looking for the answer here
http://www.xs4all.nl/~donovan/help/index.htm
would help.

No offense... you will always get an answer. But wouldn't it have been nice to know that _before_ your ships take damage? At least I do it that way... in a situation in which I am not sure I just look at donovans helppages and 99% sure I have the result I expected next turn. :)

btw... that's why it is so funny for Klingons to kill privs. Just tow a ship without fuel, trg and pe priv and you will only lose it to a cloaked ship. No robbing... everything else will fight and lose of course.

Thanx,
I confess that i used Donovans for tactics mainly in the past.
Now i will simply put 1kt of fuel on them and watch them explode harmlessly alongside my cubes, rather than tow them to bases where lesser ships may be lost.

Ya'll can't get that lucky. No one has asked any questions, so I've been answering questions from world leaders like, "How can I stop the killing in my country?", "How can I feed all my people?", "How can we stop global warming?", etc etc ...
The line below is true.

We only remain a part of the British Commonwealth because we can source old Benny Hill Programmes cheaply..

She certainly has a lovely voice - pretty girl also.
