I never used smartbombs before, but last time, when I got pinned down by a huge FW fleet, with their drones and frigate tacklers I thought these bombs could be a nice solution against at least the drones.
So what I wanna know is:
- are they effective against drone swarms (using 1-3 large EMP smartbombs, 7500m radius)?
- do these things make also damage on friendlies, especially in a highsec environment, including standing loss and CONCORD aggro?
- or are they really “smart” as the name said and attacking only ships/drones with aggro on my ship?
- would a nearby cloaked ship be affected and damaged and forced to uncloak?
I think this could be a nice option for every kind of tank ship, but if the drawbacks are too high this is not an option anymore (dont wanna lose a ship in highsec in FW, only because CONCORD interferes due to friendly fire)
