PBG in all slots and PAC on the turrets

In theory, a destroyer with a wing of fighters should easily dispatch another lone destroyer. Like Split M2+ or a Boreas guarded with panther or Demios.
True. But you have to spend money and go through all the chores to replace/repair your fighters, while your enemies just spawn theirs from thin air.

If you're looking forward to some carrier action I highly recommend the CODEA mod. The vanilla carrier commands are just not built for daily uses.

I am currently flying Ariadne with fighters transferred from my panther. I purchased it for mining nividium regarding HQ plot as it can carry a TS to UFJD sectors.

Well this Ariadne using its TS cargo and 24 m3 fighters can seriously cripple a capital ship fleet with tornado missiles in theory.
