Des Moines with a...fighter aircraft?

When a Des Moines uses a catapult fighter rather than radar or a spotting aircraft, are they doing it to harvest salt or is it because they are insane? Note: this was the Galaxy, so it could have been a Tier 6-level player.

You decide.

DM needs all the anti-air help it can get. You expect its AA guns will be able to do the job alone? :cap_rambo::cap_wander_2:

Some players just like to try it out for fun just to see what it is like.

But i would not use the fighter that is even more of a waste.

Spotter plane gets you better vision and improves your ability to lob shells over islands that a radar DesMoines might not be able to if you can imagine that.

The fact it wasn't really a Des Moines but the Galaxy seems to answer it all.  Galaxy defaults to using a fighter plane and many people messing around with temporary event ships probably forget to check the consumables before hitting "battle."

Radar doesn't give early warning on torpedoes, isn't active for as long and has the same reload.

Spotting aircraft have a shorter duration and a longer reload.

It might not be a bad idea for the rare player to bring one in matches that are flooded with radar/hydro equipped ships like space battles.

Probably not as odd as a Norma bringing radar instead of smoke, but with that much radar/hydro around, is the smoke that useful?

Eurobeat is a special guy and not exactly a Potato.  That said, I will laugh at a DM player that doesn't slot their Radar.  I saw one a while ago and it was one of the funniest sh*t I seen ingame in ages.

Personally, I do Radar+Hydro on my Des Moines.  That said, because I play like that with my DM, I can't wait for Worcester to arrive.
