Back again with more. Remember the Bordge destroyer? One of the two Metagame-styled ships I made? Well, the bastard got a retooling.
The Borges-class Heavy Assault Destroyer is a real powerhouse when it comes to direct confrontations. Its size is such that it borderlines small cruisers, and packs the firepower to take on such shields and still survive. When it comes to fighting, the Borges's technique is quite simple. Move forward, keep the enemy infront of you and shoot. Practice is harder than theory though. A quick ship circling around it can very well take out its engines and leave it a sitting duck since the ship itself is quite slow. Thus, fast attack frigates, corvettes, gunships and strikecraft pose a greater threat to this ship than cruisers and other destroyers. Thus, it is best used in conjunction with other support craft, or another Borges to cover its back.
Due to its role as a frontal-attack ship, the Borges's arrowhead front packs greater armor than the rest of the ship since the great majority of the attacks during a battle impact there.
Design: Made using the specs for 3rd Gen. ships regarding
Threat Rating: 200 (needed to pack all that in there.)
- 2X Flak Batteries
- 6X Kinetic Cannons
- 6X Automatic Kinetic Cannons
- 2X Dual-Kinetic Cannons (Twice the firepower of a regular Kinetic Cannon, but also twice the Threat Cost.)
- 1X Modified Laser Cannon (On the nose. Hits twice as hard as a normal laser cannon but takes twice as long to charge.)
- 2X Medium Beam Emitters
- 2X Twin Medium Beam Emitters
- 1X Autogun
- 1X Explosive Projector Cannon
AI Range: 600
The very front of the ship, the rounded part with the purple light, is basically a larger capital ship's piece, used here to reinforce that specific point due to it being the most impacted portion of the front.
HP of mentioned section: 3000
HP of all others: Default except for the armor pieces which are basically 1500 each.
Please leave C&C and thanks in advance. Enjoy.
