How do you recover a disabled fighter?

Recommended Posts

Greetings,

That's one of your ship's disabled fighters. Sending a shuttle out to tow it in did not appear to work; the shuttle would RTB but leave the disabled fighter floating around. Telling the fighter to RTB and flying the mothership to within 50 meters didn't work either. Nor did telling the shuttle to deliver the fighter to the mothership.

Can it be done? Or should I just deliver the fighter to the nearest station?

Tractor it inside with your tow beam. Be sure to have the launch control active when you try it.

Ah. It's treated like a cargo pod (except for the launch control bit).

Of course it would be that simple. Thanks!

I reloaded from a save point and my pilots haven't managed to bang-up any of the fighters that much since to try it out.

On the other hand, I did find out what happens when you pop out of a flux field into a black hole sector. Yikes!
