The AD Odigitria is a user-made Ancient warship. The original model was taken from one of Aldo's modeldumps, and readied for in-game usage by the Ancient-Shivan War team. For the 3.6.12 release of the Ancient-Shivan War, the model has gone through a major update.

AD Odigitria


Ancient-Shivan War Tech Room Description

The Odigitria is another advanced destroyer design, the offensive-orientated counterpart of the Achladia. With its entire anti-capital ship firepower concentrated at the front, the Odigitria is the most ideal for direct assaulting inferior warships. Situating such immense firepower on the front is an entirely different approach to our most recent battles, raising concern amongst some in the Core. While its offensive capabilities excel, the design bears less anti-fighter firepower and a relatively weaker hull than the Achladia or Pylos. This makes them highly vulnerable to attack from bomber strikecraft. Odigitrias are being deployed in our battlefields with utmost carefulness and precision to ensure their survival is not compromised.

The Odigitria wants to be Ancient equivalent of Ravana and shares all flaws of the Ravana, but also has no means of quickly destroying her targets due to sustained nature of Ancient primary cannons in Ancient-Shivan War campaign. She has 20 000 hitopoints less then Achladia and although it's only 10 000 less then Orion, she falls quickly under suppressing fire. Majority of her turrets are located on tall sides, so both large front and engine area are completely unprotected against bomber attacks. Additionally, lots of her point-defense turrets are armed with standard fighter primaries, so they fire much slower due to ship flags. She indeed has spinal firepower, but in fact she can add only one more Ancient Cannon to her damage-dealing potential then Achladia. Ancients deployed this warship only three times, and always in extremely favourable conditions with no enemy ships to exploit her tremendous weaknesses. She is overally very situational warship. In proper conditions she can really shine and is hell of an awesome-looking, unique design but her strong flaws makes Achladia way better warship in general.

Aldo's original mesh featured additional engine section and was actually supposed to be large vasudan warship. Original model was converted and textured by Inferno team, but it aged badly and was never included in any Inferno modpack nor released to public.
