Can cannon or flak shotdown a fighter in round 1?

Which one is real at round 1?

1. Cannon attack ships, flak don't attack at round 1. Then fighters are launched.
2. Fighters are launched. Then Cannon attack ships or fighters, flak attack fighters.
3. Fighters are launched. Then Cannon attack ships or fighters, flak don't attack.



Another question. Does anti-matter cannon attack fighter?

1. is correct.

Currently all ship weapons besides flak attack fighter vessels. There is a proposal to change this.

Furthermore, I propse... we should default to four combat rounds instead of three ...for the good of playerkind.

What? You're saying that flak doesn't target fighters?

Lol. No, change only the other part. Hard KISS targeting proposal. In future the only ship weapon attacking fighters will be flak.
