OverviewEdit

Point Defense Lasers (PDLs) are tasked with neutralizing and suppressing incoming enemy ordinance and/or enemy fighters. On their own they can inflict a fair amount of damage on smaller enemy ships, but are considered too small to be used effectively against medium to larger cruisers. Ships such as the Andromeda Ascendant and Eureka Maru often use them as their first line of defense against missiles. High Guard warships like the Andromeda are capable of operating PDLs on either automatic or manual fire settings.

PDLs fire in the 35 to 50 megawatt range, with about 4 Light Seconds of range.
