The AD Pylos is an Ancient destroyer seen in the Inferno mod. Although it was not used in the campaign, it was included in Inferno R1. It is, however, included and used within the Ancient-Shivan War campaign.

The Pylos model itself was actually a stretched and modified Serapis mesh, created by Woomeister. This practice of modifying retail meshes to create new ships was actually very common at the time (for example, the same method was also used to create the GVSD Het-ka), but has since fallen out of use.

Description:

Inferno Release 1 Tech Room Description

The Pylos is the first capable warship we've seen from the Ancients. An array of heavy beam cannons gives it a vicious bite from numerous angles, and it can go toe-to-toe with any Allied corvette. Like all Ancient capital ships, the Pylos is much faster than our equivalents.

Ancient-Shivan War Tech Room Description

Pylos class destroyers rest at our main frontline offensive, enforcing the will of our mighty Empire. With multiple anti-capital ship cannons, these ships are an impressive representitive of showing what a 'Destroyer' class vessel can achieve in its life. Mostly, these ships are meant to challenge other capital ships rather than destroy, and unlike more recent destroyers, have no fighter bay to speak of. The newer Achladia and Odigitria class destroyers are accomplishing both the same role as the Pylos and come with fighterbays. The Core is willing to fully decomission the Pylos within the next two decades. Until every last one has been farewelled, the Pylos will remain in our crusades, leading the charge against any inferior race.
