Escort Carrier

From Star Trek Online Wiki
Jump to: navigation, search
An Akira class escort carrier.

Escort Carriers are a type of Federation playable starship. They are a hybrid between an escort and a carrier. Escort carrier have hangar bays as carriers do (albeit just one) in which carrier pets can be equipped, but they are faster and more maneuverable than the larger, heavier carrier vessels. Their counterparts on the Klingon Empire side are the Flight-Deck Cruiser and Flight-Deck Raptor, and the Romulan Tactical Carrier Warbirds.

Escort cruisers have 2 device slots and gain a bonus +15 weapons power.

Variants[edit | edit source]

Heavy Escort Carrier[edit | edit source]

Armitage class
When Starfleet first retrofitted the Akira class: they were still unhappy with the end product. Improving it further, the Armitage class is designed to fit the original role meant for the Akira class: that of a small carrier-escort hybrid. It is also able to acts as a torpedo boat.

Performance[edit | edit source]

The Armitage boosts good maneuverability, typical with all Federation Escort and is well suited to delivering frontal-fire using Dual Heavy Cannons and Torpedo Launchers, unlike standard carriers. It can act as a torpedo boat capable of presenting large torpedo volleys to the front or rear arcs; combined with the Photon Torpedo Point Defense System, this can create significant burst damage against multiple targets.

In addition, the Armitage has the crew count of the Tier 5 Fleet Escort, the console layout of the Tactical Escort Retrofit, and a Lt. Commander Engineering Bridge Officer. These combine to make this class more capable of surviving sustained fire than other escorts of this rank.

A single hangar bay allows the Armitage class flexibility to suit its current mission. Fighters can be equipped for additional DPS, shuttles for interception and debuffs against incoming enemies, or shield repair drones for additional staying power in combat. You may also equip Runabouts for the best performance possible. The ship is capable of really good DPS, and with the help of Runabouts you can keep your enemies locked down with their tractor beams while you unleash massive damage onto them.
