Our British spaceship fleet gets three new reinforcements this week. The largest of the three is is Medway class Patrol Ship – this is a deep space patrol vessel tasked with keeping watch over distant colonies, showing the flag and generally showing up wherever it can be useful. It has a railgun battery as main armament, and also room for a marine squad and a fighter bay which can be useful for either interceptors or shuttle craft. They can just as often be found running rescue or humanitarian missions as military ones.
Joining the main fleet are the new Triumph class heavy destroyers. Slower than most fleet escorts, they have a battery of Stardart missiles and additional armour to help them stand in the line of battle.
The Shark class Stealth Destroyers are part of the fleet’s Deep Strike arm, joining the larger Swiftsure cruisers as part of a task force that specialises in fast interdiction missions on enemy installations. They’re equipped wwith heavy forward firing railguns for hitting power and a stealth generator to keep them hidden.
Starmada-X stats can be found for these three new ships on our website.
We’ll be rejigging the contents of our British fleet packs to accomodate these new ships, although that hasn’t quite happened yet.
Alas, due to the slightly late arrival of the production mould I won’t have any of these at Cavalier on Sunday 🙁
