Munitions Capacity Extender on a Bomber?

Any idea why someone would want Munition Capacity Extender on a bomber when we have an unlimited payload? It seems to serve no purpose at all so why would it even be an option?

I assume you meant "Bombers with mines as secondary weapon", because when equipping your bomber with missiles you do have limited ammunitions... even though, Bombers seem to get a baseline extra 33%.

Don't select it.

Everyone with a secondary weapon gets the same options, even though they make NO sense.


But, every bomber can at least choose an option that doesn't have infinity. You can always pick proton torpedo, for instance- every bomber has that, and it's finite.


The Type 1 Gunship (Quarrel/Mangler) has this option as well. And it has nothing but railguns as secondaries. Chew on that!

Unless you're flying a Mangler/Quarrel/VX-9. Then select it to play GSF on hard mode. Nightmare mode unavailable, because you have railguns.

My Cluster/Interdiction Jurgoran uses them. But those are really the only two missiles for which capacity is a limiting concern (and Clusters only fall into that group with the double-volley upgrade).

I see a different component to change out before even talking to secondaries....


I have used this mag on starguard with clusters, and pike with clusters and protons. Of the two, I actually think it has solid merit on a pike.


Though it is less popular, all the magazines are actually best at something. If you fire straight from full, you'll last longer with the max capacity one.


Still, regen is obviously mostly better!

Yes, yes. Because lord forbid someone actually use a component set they think is fun while still being effective instead of being completely 'optimal'.

People are free to screw around with crazy builds, that's fine. But if you were talking about defending a component, it being optimal on a crazy build doesn't say much.

You truly lack the imagination to see how a well-shielded fighter with double-turning radius and BLC's, able to spam two short range missiles--one of which puts on a crippling slow--isn't an effective build for short-range dogfighting and satellite control?
