Orbital Superiority

T1 Orbital - Damage Dealer - Anti-Orbital - Light Armour - Fast
With their Spartan design Vipers are fast, mass producible starships capable of quickly swarming heavier orbital threats. However, their light armour cannot stand up to the sustained fire of defensive orbital satellites.

Sputnik

Sputnik

Radar

T1 Orbital - Scout - Radar - Light Armour
While the MLA can brute force their way to victory, the Imperial Legion often does not have the same luxury. Sputniks allow planetary reconnaissance and are key to the intelligent application of power.

Chariot

Chariot

Transport

T1 Orbital - Interplanetary - Transportation - Fragile - Fast
The Chariot is a heavy lifting vehicle rated to transport up to 9000 tons between planets. Many a Legion Commander has been saved by Chariots in tactical retreats against numerically superior MLA forces. Better to live and fight another day.

WEAK AGAINST

Wraith

Spectre

Recon

T1 Orbital - Scout - Fragile - Very Fast
Using its supercharged warp drive, the Spectre is able to travel almost instantaneously between planets to provide timely intelligence. Its oversized engine leaves little room or power for advanced optics or weaponry.

WEAK AGAINST

T2: Orbital

Blackknight

Black Knight

Ground Attack

T2 Orbital - Heavy AOE - Light Armour - Slow
Built around the powerful X-9 plasma cannon, the Black Knight consumes vast amounts of energy to deliver a ground blast equivalent to 20 megatons of TNT. Only especially hardened neosteel can withstand more than a few devastating salvos.

Kosmos

Kosmos

Adv Radar

T2 Orbital - Light Damage - Scout - Radar - Heavy Armour - Slow
An upgrade over the Sputnik, Kosmos has thicker armour plating, improved optics, and the addition of a light turret to ward off attacks from orbital fighters. All of this advanced technology comes however at a significant cost.

Excalibur

Paladin

Sniper

T2 Orbital - Damage Dealer - Anti-Orbital - Very Long Range - Light Armour
The Paladin is based on Progenitor frigate designs. Modified for crewless operation and relatively cheap to produce, its Long Range armour-piercing railgun is capable of quickly neutralizing slow or stationary orbital targets from relative safety.

Ship of the Line

T2 Orbital - Long Range - Heavy Armour - Slow
Pride of the Imperial Legion fleet, the Imperator is a heavily armoured battleship class starship. Both ground and orbital based defences are no match for its firepower. Imperators have played a key role in the vanguard of several major planetary invasions, clearing the area for the following invasion force.
