Original SCv Scylla


If the SCv Moloch class of corvettes led you to think that the Shivans can only fail with corvette designs the Scylla will quickly change your mind. This corvette is incredibly fast and is also armed to the teeth: its 5 beam cannons are usually enough to wipe out warships of corvette size and below and threaten destroyers.

Description:

Inferno R1 Description

The Scylla is the most fearsome corvette in the Shivan arsenal. Extremely fast, well-armed and heavily shielded against our weapons, it is a dire threat to our cruisers and corvettes, and can lash out against destroyers with its heavy forward cannon. Fortunately, its weapons are rather weak and its point defence armament is relatively poor, with only a handful of laser turrets and a pair of AAA beams.

Veteran Comments

Read the Veteran Comments policy before editing this section.


Believe me, it's a nightmare in Inferno Release 1. With single LRed on her nose and four addonital medium beams, this corvette has a firepower much bigger than Demon or Ravana. Betrayal redesigned her armament in HTL version and replaced spinal cannon with three medium beams. Both Exile and Inferno: Nostos uses version with three spinal beams.
