The paralyzer also does a good job in the early stages of the game. If an early space battle is expected, feel free to use the commercial screen, buy some sort of problem solver equipped with torpedoes and cannons.
Complemented with a space cannon, you can discourage the enemy from running down. Since we can only buy a tank at first due to lack of production, we can storm the relatively defenseless enemy planets with any tank collection at good air superiority. At the meeting of cruisers, the ship’s manipulator is decisive.
