Smile Doing away with Meson Guns

OK, new question. (BTW, thanks to all who replied to my earlier question) How would warship design philosophy under HG2 be changed in a TU that had no meson technology at all, neither guns nor screens? Surely armor would be of greater importance to counter spinal PAWs. Would this change the nature of the battleship/battlerider debate? What about the meson/missile/rock thing?
The reason I ask is that the spinal meson gun seems to be the most unbalanced component of HG2, ahead of even the armor-21 buffered planetoid ship.
I might try some one-off HG battles using only PAW & Missile armed ships and see how it goes. Fewer one-hit kills, I suspect. What does everyone else think?


Cheers,

Bob Weaver
