Viability of bulkheads?
I don't see anyone researching bulkheads, least of all bulkheads II now because its not useful late game when ipc on shields and nukes chunk a percent of structural hp.

It is only good early game versus lasers and gauss, and even then only when you've protected the base from nukes. A single nuke III can chunk off ten percent of a sb's structure with bulkheads, but armor plating provides protection against everything else. So it's safer to go for armor plating, and cross your fingers that no one has researched gauss. If they haven't you can safely ignore that bonus damage from nukes/ipc have brought your structure down to 1% / 7 hp because they'll still have to get through all that armor to kill you.
