Functions and applications

M3+ heavy fighters have even more shielding and laser energy reload than M3s but are slower and less agile.   A notable feature of all M3+ ships is having both a forward and rear turret which if equipped with a high accuracy weapon like IRE, PRG or PBE can easily protect the ship from a large number of incoming missiles.   The moderate cargobays allow for extensive missile use and jumping large distances.   The high price makes most M3+ ships (Medusa Prototype might be the only exception) unsuited for production in the Player Headquarters as several M6 ships which have superior combat capabilities have a shorter production time.
