Situation: I towed a fuel-less Rebel Rush to a star base. This took several turns because I wanted to go to a secure base - a base I was confident had no enemy cloaked vessels in orbit.
To my astonishment, I found 330 fighters on board after the Rush was forced to surrender. Is this because my enemy was negligent, didn't understand what the "J" botton does, or is it impossible to jettison cargo from a towed ship.
I wish to know the answer before I begin a new round of taunts against my dear adversary.
You're right about it though. I guess there are reasons to upgrade from time to time. But you can jettison fighters if you are using VPA with DOSPlan, can't you (can't you tell I don't use VPA and DOSPlan)?
The ship was definately out of fuel. It ran out trying to while trying to intercept a Federation ship in deep space. Since the Rush was unable to jettison fighters, then I don't have that basis to upbraid the Rebels. A pity. At least I have the fighters.
