Sharing many superstructure elements with the smaller Centurion Grand Cruiser, the Phalanx was one of the largest standardised classes produced by Trident Industrial, though today it’s only built in Kalium’s yards. Pre-war Battlecruisers differ from modern types in that they are slower and offer less firepower in manoeuvre, but far superior toughness. Indeed, it’s best to think of them as pocket-battleships rather than specialist, aggressive ships.
The Phalanx is armed with long broadsides of transition mass drivers and four Titanmetall 9K mass drivers in two traversable turrets. In combination, the class can unleash withering fire against multiple targets, given the right positioning.
The Tribune’s firepower comes from two conventional artillery cannon turrets and an increased close action capability, as well as a single mass driver turret. However – unusually for a full combat ship of this size – it features capacity for bulk landers and a flight deck, making it a fleet carrier as well. In combination, the Tribune is a jack of all trades, able to adapt to fluid combat situations better than most ships.
This set contains 1 Resistance Battlecruiser, able to be built as either a Phalanx or Tribune. With armour heavy enough to make a Battleship blush and loads of Hull Points, these Battlecruisers will stick around to the end of the battle.
The Phalanx has the role of a traditional Battlecruiser, with loads of firepower from its Mass Drivers and Hybrid Gun Batteries. Anything you point this at will definitely feel the pain. The Tribune however has a much more varied loadout, able to be used in offensive or defensive roles with Bulk Landers & Fire Ships, Fighters & Bombers, Missile Banks, Low Power Artillery Cannon Turrets and even a Mass Driver Turret. It can do it all!
Contains 1 resin miniature with parts to assemble two variants, and a plastic Dropfleet Commander base and flight stand.
Resin miniature supplied unpainted and unassembled. This kit will require cleaning and assembly, and could need some small holes filled.
