Phoenix Ship

From 1d4chan
You thought it was a Battleship, didn't you?

Craftworld Eldar does not have any Battleship analogues. Rather, their largest vessel is a Battlecruisers. This is due to the fact that they have a Craftworld which functions like a Battleship while being much, MUCH more.

Phoenix Ships are one such example of a Battlecruiser-class Eldar warship. The Phoenix is similar in design to the Dragonship and Wraithship and is equipped with Pulsar Lances, Lascannon batteries, and launch bays for Attack Craft.

The Phoenix Ship's loadout is 2 Launch Bays carrying Darkstar Fighters and Eagle Bombers, 4 Heavy Lascannon Artillery, 1 Lascannon Artillery and 2 Pulsar Lance Beams.

  • Length: 10-12km; approx
  • Mass: 32 megatonnes; approx
  • Crew: 26,800 crew, including 15,500 pilots and support staff; approx
  • Acceleration: 8 gravities maximum sustainable acceleration

In Battlefleet Gothic: Armada 2[edit]

The Phoenix Ship carries a devastating arsenal of complimentary weaponry, carrying a mixed offensive load-out that only lacks torpedo tubes. Something worth mentioning off the bat is that despite the Pulsar Cannons limited firing arc, there is so much damage output from the broadside-capable Lascannon weaponry and Launch Bays, that the Phoenix is still devastating without bringing it's Pulsar Cannons to bear every 30 seconds on the dot.

Further looking at the damage output numbers, the Phoenix is offensively one of the strongest vessels in the game, especially in the Battle Cruiser class which it punches way above. It surpasses the other top-tier Aeldari vessel, the Voidstalker Corsair Battle Cruiser in raw DPS by 7 points, while falling just under the pirate ships' crits per minute by 0.3, and has stronger armour, faster engines, better troops at the cost of 400 fewer hull points. That being said, the Phoenix Ship actually comes in 152 points under the Voidstalker, making it in some comparisons a much stronger flagship vessel option.
