Firepower may sound simple, but actually it is NOT. Firepower means: the effectiveness of your ship's cannons.

Firepower is NOT only raw Damage, but gets influenced by Reload, Accuracy, Fittings, Skills, Gunpowders, and alot of Defensive Skills (of your target).

Firepower may even be a personal thing; some people prefer heavy cannons with a long loading time to deal lot of Spike Power, but having a terrible Damage-Per-Second. So what's the best cannon weight (lb) for the most firepower?

You must ask yourself, what do I want to do?
