I cannot get past level 5 because no one seems to know how to take these things on. I tried to make a run at a group of 3 warheads, with Em Power to Shields 1 and Tac Team 3 active: I was obliterated. I'm running a Patrol Escort with mk12 omega shields. I regularly solo cubes in elite STFs. I cannot believe a torpedo can SHOOT that hard, never mind the explosion.

It just seems like the devs couldn't figure out how to put in enough ships to make it "no-win", so they put in some crazy op "warheads" and said "there, now nobody can win". Might as well just make all our warp cores go critical at the start of the level.

I have heard rumor that these were added as a middle finger to players after a fleet beat the scenario on Tribble, but I don't know how much truth there is to that.
Heard that rumor too- the one that says some fleet beat no win with minimal effort on the first try, so the devs said 'screrw you guys!' And stuck the op torps in as revenge
When in doubt, (hehe) c4!
