Functions and applications

The M6+ Heavy corvettes sacrifice speed and cargobay capacity for increased shielding and firepower compared to M6 ships.   In sector M6+ ships are more resistant to missiles due to having more turrets with a larger variety of lasers able to be equiped (centaur family excepted).   The lack of speed prevents many M6+ ships (Heavy Centaur Prototype, Heavy Dragon, Hyperion Vanguard and Skiron excluded) from being used for raiding and tends to favour a defensive or fleet role.   Unlike M6 corvettes that can rely heavily on missiles in combat the limited cargobay forces M6+ ships to rely more on conventional combat.   This indifference to missile use makes M6+ ships vastly superior when fighting out of sector.
