Destroying Corvettes

Greetings chaps and chapettes,

In a couple of games at a recent tournament, a not insignificant portion of my fleet was destroyed by a Corvette swarm. This led me to begin pondering the fastest, or rather most cost effective method of dealing with a Corvette swarm, beyond flying a strike carrier in and detonating drives.

Originally I was thinking launch was my best option, but I am increasingly more dubious of this assessment.

What type of Corvettes? And what types of ships where they destroying?

Launch is in my opinion a good way but it has a limitation, namely that Corvettes using the Atmosphere to cover their Approach are immune to it (just like Djinns). It is a bit hard to be more concrete without more information as I would have to guess a lot of things about your situation which might or might not apply.

UCM fighting Scourge in this instance, because of the deployment type 6+ Nikars wiped out strike cruisers and then unsupported cruisers.
