Unlike Vanguards, Assault fleets require more members and coordination on the parts of all the Pilots involved. At first it can be difficult to manage and run larger fleets but becomes easy over time.
Assault fleets always need a OGB because of the number of pilots in fleet and the amount of incoming damage requires more tank, faster logis and quicker ships.
The two most common used OGB's and their differences can be found to the left.
Including the OGB a standard Assault fleet size is 21 Pilots consisting of the following:
- 8 Snipers that can target and hit at 150km+
- 3 DPS that can hit no farther than 50km
- 4 Tech 3 or Tier 3 Cruiser ships
- 5 Logistics, 2 Scimitar and 3 Basilisk.
Logistics composition in Assault fleets is very important and should be the biggest concern of any FC. Look here for Logistics information: http://twmfcorp.com/random/lc-cheat-sheet.pdf
