It is no secret that the Jericho LR Frigate has a serious problem. The torpedo they fire can easily be destroyed and suppressed by the missile shield of the Guard Frigate class.
I would suggest the removal of the current single guided torpedo and a replacement option.
Every 15 seconds, the Jericho LR frigate can launch a salvo of 10 laser-guided rockets. The pilot guides the salvo via a laser targeting view identical to the Disintegrator view of Empire LR frigates. This limits them to line-of-sight targets, but also makes them immune to missile shields. Rockets deal splash damage in a 200m radius.
Function that used to detonate torpedo in mid-flight now sets rockets to an unguided mode and removes the pilot from the sniper-view in case of surprise attack by an assailant.
