Basically, It depends on the size and mission of the vessel in question; A full fledged battlestar has A Full airwing of vipers and raptors;Is is more heavily armed with more crew.
A gunstar is basically An escort,smaller in size,but just as well armed;The big difference is we don't have vipers; The raven battle group is organized along the lines of A real world carrier battle group;There's the flagship,the escorts,and the support vessels.
Often when we engage the cylons,Our combined firepower often makes the difference,depending on what they throw at us;When missions are planned for the chat room,we take what intel we have,and decide what assets to use,when and where,pretty much like 'Risk',or chess.
Hoping that explains what we do...the bottom line is having fun,of course,while trashing toasters!
