Why doesn't the ram count as a weapon? I built a ram-ship but then had to stick a rifleman on it so it doesn't insta-defeat in combat.
For the moment I wonder if I can design a little ship that just has a rifleman and fly that off to the corner of the map to prevent defeat via disarmament and then use a ship only fitted out with a ram as my main vessel?
This is also a problem with boarding-only ships. I think the weapon check for defeat should probably be removed entirely given the new additions.
