So ive recently gotten into the game again, and i just realized i've got no idea how the combat resolution system works. Ive checked the pedia, the in-game one as well as the online one, and couldnt find an answer. This question came up after i realized a ship with three atack can destroy a ship with 5 hp in one turn. None of this really makes sense to me, so i'm hoping to get an explaination.
There are three combat rounds per turn. Most ships participate in all three rounds, although some things with fighters and stealth are different, as I recall. So a regular ship versus ship would have your example one doing up to 9 damage absent shields. So a ship with 5 structure would be destroyed after the second combat round.
