Vaadwaur Astika Heavy Battlecruiser
The Vaadwaur Astika Heavy Battlecruiser is a Rear Admiral (Tier 6) Battle Cruiser. This ship is available to Federation, Romulan Republic, and KDF players. It can be obtained from the [Lobi Crystal Consortium] Store for 900 . 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.
The Vaadwaur Astika Heavy Battlecruiser comes equipped with the [Console - Universal - Assault Mode Relays]. This unit contains sophisticated circuitry designed specifically to facilitate quickly shunting power between engines and weapons in the blink of an eye. Vaadwaur starships frequently make use of this capability to allow their vessels to swap between being highly mobile, and highly deadly. This universal console also provides a substantial passive increase to turn and flight speed as long as Assault Mode isn’t active.
Variants[edit | edit source]
Astika class[edit | edit source]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.
