Anti-Air

T1 Ship - Anti-Air - Shield Penetration
A dedicated anti-air platform, the Talos is programmed with only one purpose. Its Mark 6 energy cannons make short work of any aircraft that intrude into its no-fly zone. Without anti-ship weapons of any kind, it works best when protected in the centre of a naval formation.

Ship of the Line

T1 Ship - Damage Dealer- Long Range - Heavy Armour - Slow
Able to take a beating with armour up to 700mm thick, Bowheads excel at head-on surface action. Armed with three bow mounted 420mm cannons, it pounds enemies into submission from afar. The extra weight of neosteel plating has left it slow and without room for torpedo launchers, making it a sitting duck against underwater threats.
