Firestorm Armada: Schiffe des Syndicate
Spartan Games zeigen ins zwei bemalte Schiffe des Syndikats: das Schlachtschiff und den Heavy Cruiser.
PHANTOM CLASS BATTLESHIP
The great stellar empires and their star fleets do not have the monopoly on building large, powerful capital ships. Many smaller independent shipyards, especially within the Directorate and the more remote regions of Dindrenzi space, will quite happily construct power battle-craft for all manner of clients, no questions asked.
The mighty Phantom Class battleship is one the largest and most potent ships of this type. They are believed to be constructed within the Directorate, and have found particular favour with wealthy stellar crime cartels, such as the infamous Vylia’sal Syndicate of the Rift.
Phantoms are famous for their internal opulence – those who commission such warships often wish to make a statement to friends and enemies alike in more ways than one. These vessels are often monuments to their owners’ wealth as much as their military power.
SPUR CLASS HEAVY CRUISER
Designed and built by the same shipyards that turn out Phantoms for wealthy – and usually shady – customers, the powerful Spur Class Heavy Cruiser is for all intents and purposes a scaled down version of its battleship cousin. However, what the Spur lacks in size, it makes up for in speed and striking power.
Although lacking the capacity to ship squadrons of short-range strike craft, the Spur has an array of armaments every bit as diverse and deadly as the Phantom, though on a smaller scale. Deadly railgun casemates and accelerator turrets are mounted on the vessel in the same aspect as the battleship’s weaponry.
Where the Spur excels in weaponry, however, is with its forward plasma projector. The Heavy Cruiser mounts a disproportionately large powerplant for its mass. The excess energy generated is channelled into the ventrally-mounted system.
