What's this? A laser beam?

... From how far away?

This is the Ion Lance capital support antimissile ship, designed to cover entire fleets against missile fire. It uses Draba's hover script to keep a fixed distance of about 1km from enemy ships while bombarding them with LAMS and periodic piercing lasers of doom.
It was designed before 2.0 and is in the middle of updates which may or may not be completed depending on my level of motivation so I decided to post it now to prove the concept.
It's mostly just a plain old forward-broadsiding thrustercraft. The piercing lasers are just standard spinal-mount laser rifles with a high AP and instant damage, designed to take out vehicles in one shot. But the LAMS are to my knowledge the only system of their kind, designed to destroy missiles at absurd ranges to defeat entire fleets' missile volleys. But just the missiles.

Haven't downloaded the blueprint yet but does it use the more effective but spacious regular laser but with a CIWS controller and a billion optics or usual LAMS?

It's the more effective but spacious regular laser combiner with a CIWS controller. In two arms, one left and one right, each about a hundred blocks long. (Hence the color to the LAMS effects shown.)
It is also used against small fast flyers that think getting up in the vehicle's face is a good idea.

Impressive thing! It's so deliriously effective against missiles, it's utterly fun to watch!
