Which sentry drones will do more damage? Garde or Curator?

In EFT Garde's obviously do more, but would the curators be better becuase theydeal EM damage?

Thanks in advance

Garde's will out perform v.s. drones.

The damage profiles only have EM winning but a slight edge over thermal.

The gap in dps between the 2 drone types is far larger than the profile difference.

Range is generally not enough of an issue to help close this gap either.

Save the curators for Sansha and Blood raiders.

It depends on the ship bonus. If your ships has a drone optimal range bonus, get Gardes. If not, get Curators.

You'll want optimals of about 70km running hordes due to spawns

I use Curators. Gardes just don't hit crap. The Curators are good out to 84km.

You'll have to speak up, I'm wearing a towel.
