Vessel Armaments won't be found on the Black Market due to strict regulation by the powers that be, so take care of the craft weapons you start with until more advanced armaments are researched to allow manufacturing capacility.

Two important details to keep in mind in order to achieve air superiority is that armaments only deal 50-100% of the listed damage upon successful hit. For instance, a Charger Laser can deal 6 damage, but that can actually range from 3 to 6. In addition, all weapon accuracies are based on a Medium sized enemy shipping, due to the ship size To-Hit modifier.

Shipping Size To-Hit Modifiers
Very Small Small Medium Large Very Large
75% 87.5% 100% 125% 200%

In addition, vessels can be loaded with special equipment at the cost of a weapon hardpoint. However, the devices may be loaded only into specific hardpoint classes, so a vessel might be restricted from loading certain devices.

Lastly, Piratez favors the bold, so to does this apply to air combat. A vessel's stance (Cautious / Standard / Aggressive) may factor into its weapon firing rate, allowing it to attack a target more rapidly. Taking into consideration most enemy ships outrange your vessels a majority of the game, you might as well utilize the Aggressive benefit of increased firing rate. Keep in mind that stances have no other effects, such as a Dodge bonus, increased defense or alter the enemy shipping's accuracy.

Other Equipment

Thruster
Thruster

ADDITIONAL ENGINE MOUNTED ON A CRAFT, TAKING UP A MISSILE SLOT. INCREASES THE MAXIMUM SPEED BY 250 AND THE CHANCE TO DODGE ENEMY FIRE BY 9%.

Slot Effect(s)
Missile Ship Speed +250 Dodge Bonus +9


Notes:
Generally underwhelming as majority of vessels with missile hardpoints are pure interceptors, and the dodge bonus isn't terribly useful for pure interceptors as most air combat relies on using multiple vessels against enemy ships, which pure interceptors are generally not the "lead attack craft". Could be useful for early interceptions where stronger lead craft are not available.

Targeter
Targeter

A SUPERLUMINAL SCANNING DEVICE HOOKED TO A BALLISTIC AI. OCCUPIES A MISSILE SLOT AND INCREASES SHIP'S RADAR RANGE BY 250 AND ACCURACY OF ALL ITS WEAPONS BY FLAT 10%; WEAPONS WITH LOW INNATE ACCURACY WILL THUS BE THE MOST AFFECTED.

Slot Effect(s)
Missile Ship Radar Range +250 Armament Accuracy +10%


Notes:
Best utilized on a vessel that has Light hardpoints, as Missiles generally have high innate accuracy. The effects may be underwhelming if loaded onto a vessel with less than two total hardpoints (as loading this device would leave the vessel with only one weapon). Can also be used to save some money by wasting fewer missiles.

Shield
Shield

A GRAVITIC SHIELD MOUNTED ON A CRAFT, AT THE PRICE OF A LIGHT WEAPON SLOT. REDUCES THE POWER OF EVERY HIT THE CRAFT RECEIVES BY 15 POINTS, THUS BEING THE MOST EFFECTIVE AGAINST POORLY ARMED VESSELS.

Slot Effect(s)
Light Incoming Damage -15 Power


Notes:
Depending on the enemy ship, this device can negate damage entirely or generally reduce damage by ~30%. See here for enemy ships' weapon power in order to determine potential damage reduction.
