Overview[edit | edit source]
The Vanguard Fleet is the personal detachment of Dominion starships and soldiers that accompany the changeling known as Odo. As one of the few Founders with an affinity for life as a solid, he has been placed in command of this fleet in an effort to combat the re-emerging Hur'q threat.
The Jem'Hadar Vanguard Dreadnought Cruiser frequently acts as the flagship for Dominion fleets, as this commanding starship is just as suited to frontline assaults as it is to leading its fellow starships in strategic strikes from a position of authority.

Surpassing in size the Dreadnought Carrier seen during the Dominion War, the Vanguard Dreadnought Cruiser is an imposing addition to the Dominion fleet. Large heavy plating protects the belly of the ship and massive weapons pods slung under its wings imply the heavy arsenal a ship of this size carries. A ship of this class served as Odo's Flagship during the Hur'q conflict.

Jem'Hadar Vanguards can perform the following maneuvers:
All maneuvers share a cooldown, and only one may be active at a time. Wingmen may not be ordered to attack specific targets, but will instead rapidly update their targeting parameters based on the player's chosen target.
If destroyed in combat, each Wingman will automatically rejoin the player after a short lockout period has passed.
Standard configuration[edit | edit source]
Starships come with standard equipment and weapons of the lowest mark available at the ship's minimum rank. The items provided are appropriate to the type of vessel and its related playing style.

Hull strength[edit source]
This table shows how the ship's hull strength scales at each level. The base hull of all scaling starships is 10,000, which is then multiplied by the ship's hull modifier (1.375 for the Jem'Hadar Vanguard Dreadnought Cruiser), and then multiplied by the scaling multiplier below at each level.
