The Vaadwaur Astika Heavy Battlecruiser is a Rear Admiral (Tier 6) Battle Cruiser. This ship is available to players of all factions for 900 Lobi Crystal icon.png at the Lobi Crystal Consortium. It can also be found on the Exchange.

Overview[edit | edit source]

Battlecruisers of the Astika-class further reinforce focus on offensive force while also being capable of withstanding heavy incoming fire, thanks to their sturdy craftsmanship and many versatile capabilities.

Designed using a combination of the Vaadwaur's 900-year-old martial philosophy and cutting-edge technology derived from the Supremacy's mysterious benefactors, the Astika strikes an unusual, aggressive profile. The Astika packs all its key systems, including weapons, engines, and crew space into its primary hull, with minimal usage of secondary hulls or outboard structures. The sides of the hull house numerous weapon hardpoints, including the infamous Vaadwaur polaron barrage emitters. The deflector is mounted along the forward "nose" area, exposing the minimal amount of necessary surface area to allow functionality.

The bridge is housed inside an armored "tower" structure at the rear of the dorsal hull, where it overlooks the ship's Assault Relays in the spine of the ship. When activated, the assault relays rise up and expose their energy-conducting surfaces to increase the power of outgoing weapons fire. The ventral support buttresses located between the barrage emitters also extend outward when assault relays are active.

The Astika's warp nacelles are concealed inside a pair of armored "wings" located towards the rear of the hull, alongside five large impulse engine ports. Vaadwaur impulse engines emit a bright red exhaust, giving the Astika and other Vaadwaur ships a distinct visual "trail" in local space.

This console is part of the Vaadwaur Artillery Set, which also includes [Console - Universal - Polaron Barrage Launcher] obtainable with the Vaadwaur Manasa Assault Escort (T6), but also equippable on the Vaadwaur Astika Heavy Battlecruiser. For each console added after the first, an additional passive bonus is unlocked.

Equipping both consoles enables the Polaron Cannon Barrage to create five additional secondary targets around player's ship.

Scaling starship[edit source]

This starship's equipment slots, base hull capacity and shield capacity scale as your level increases.

Equipment slots[edit source]

As you rank up every 10 levels, up to level 40, the ship's forward weapon slots, aft weapon slots, tactical console slots, engineering console slots, and science console slots will slowly increase toward endgame capabilities:

Level Console tac icon.png Console eng icon.png Console sci icon.png Fore weapons Aft weapons
0-9 2 3 0 3 2
10-19 2 3 1 4 2
20-29 3 4 1 4 3
30-39 3 4 2 5 3
40+ 4 5 2

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 (1.5 for the Vaadwaur Astika Heavy Battlecruiser), and then multiplied by the scaling multiplier below at each level.
