PHR destroyers are larger and bulkier than those of other races. Indeed, by UCM reckoning they could almost be classed a light cruiser. The Electra is armed with four heavy calibre mass drivers in two pairs. These massive guns are devastating when unleashed against large vessels, the Electra’s preferred prey. Its sister the Ariadne is laid out in a multi-role configuration more in keeping with typical PHR fleet doctrine. Primarily, it is an early stage planetary assault ship designed to compliment strike carriers.
The blockade runner is a type of ship almost unique to the PHR and a staple feature in their shadowy and mysterious operations. Although based on a destroyer type hull, blockade runners feature reduced armament in favour of expansive and powerful drives, making them abnormally fast. The Jason class is not poorly armed however, featuring as it does a pair of heavy mass drivers and especially advanced anti-atmospheric close action weaponry. The Odysseus is, unusually for the PHR, a very focused and inflexible design. Its only mission profile is high speed and low-observable insertion of bulk infantry formations, supplies and defence batteries to advance targets.
This set contains 3 PHR Destroyers, all able to be built as either Electra, Ariadne, Jason, or Odysseus classes.
With lots of options to choose from, PHR players are spoiled for choice on Destroyers! The ships have that classic PHR look, although with slightly wider backs then their Cruiser cousins, showing that these are fast and up-gunned! The Electra and Jason provide your typical Destroyer roles, The Electra with two sets of Twin Heavy Calibres (bye bye Battleships), and the Jason trading one set for very dangerous Kingfisher Drones. Meanwhile the Ariadne and Odysseus swap their underslung Twin Heavy Calibres for Bulk Landers, which offers a mixed approach, with decent weapons and fantastic drop ability.
Contains 3 resin miniatures and plastic Dropfleet Commander bases and flight stands.
Resin miniatures supplied unpainted and unassembled. This kit will require cleaning and assembly, and could need some small holes filled. Other ships and gaming mats are for scale purposes only.
