Official Description: Equipped with fore and aft anti-strike craft phase missile launchers, the Junsurak Sentinel is deceptively adept at dealing with both enemy squadrons and vessels. Not only are its missiles effectively impossible to outmaneuver, but they can also be upgraded to use the same area of effect Charged Missile technology of the Kanrak Assailant, allowing the Junsurak to clear dense clouds of enemy strike craft at the cost of mobility.
Like all flak frigates, the Sentinel is effective both at attacking enemy strike craft and at engaging targets with Light Armor, such as long range frigates. Although the flak frigates have very high listed DPS, the number listed is for when all 4 banks of the frigate are firing continuously (on the front, back, and sides). As such, flak frigates are most effective against enemy LRF when you fly your frigates directly into the center of their formation so that all banks can fire.
A large group of Sentinels will do immense amounts of damage against enemy LRF swarms in this manner, but be careful: to use the Sentinels most effectively requires a significant amount of micromanagement. In addition, they should probably be ordered to Hold Position so they don't stop attacking the enemy LRF and go chasing a stray enemy fighter squadron halfway across the gravity well.
However, against any target other than strike craft or light-armor frigates, the Sentinel does next to no damage, even in large numbers. As such, to defend against the enemy from building an Orkulus on one of your planets, or to defend against enemy capital ships, one should usually build Sentinels in large numbers only when one already has the firepower to defend against starbases and capital ships.
