Stuff like that yea, a solar system [in game] should be the home of asymmetric and guerrilla warfare like inland seas would be in naval war, we just need stuff that give the same effect as shallow water and numerous islands so replace those with something spacey.
Here's an bit from wikipedias page on coastal defence ships (the type of ship that spurred me to make this thread)
"The Pansarskepp, with the notable exception of the Sverige class, were relatively small vessels with limited speed, shallow draft, and very heavy guns relative to the displacement. They were designed for close in-shore work in the littoral zone of Scandinavia, and other countries with shallow coastal waters. The aim was to outgun any ocean-going warship of the same draft by a significant margin, making it a very dangerous opponent for a cruiser, and deadly to anything smaller. The limitations in speed and seaworthiness were a trade-off for the heavy armament carried. Vessels similar to the Swedish Pansarskepp were also built and operated by Denmark, Norway, and Finland, all of which had similar naval requirements."
Pansarskepp is "coastal defence ship"
Realised something about myself, caused me a personal crisis and gave me w new hobby. Now I need how to draw fml
