5.2 Escort Duty

  1. Select the ship or battle group you want to do the escorting.
  2. Then use a combination of Ctrl and Alt (a shield logo should appear) and left click on the ship/s you want to this ship to escort.
I used cloak generators to escort salvage collectors into combat. Hopefully allowing the salvage ships to remain undetected until it was to late and they took control of the victim ship.

Even though I found this an excellent tactic, practice was required to time the attack and try to use this only on isolated ships.

Select support ships, then left click & 'z' key
