The AC Gordia is a light, ultra-fast, user-made Ancient warship. Originally created for the Inferno Release 1 mod, it was also used in the Ancient-Shivan War campaign.

Description:

Inferno Release 1 Tech Room Description

Barely registering as a cruiser, the Gordia is an ultra-fast capital ship that appears to be more of a transport than a warship. Although very heavily armored, this small cruiser is of little threat to virtually anything with more than a few guns. Pilots should be aware of her powerful defensive weapons, however.

Ancient-Shivan War Tech Room Description

The Gordia is our ultra-fast strike cruiser class. Not built for fighting defensively like the Heraklion, these cruisers was built instead for strike missions where victory is absolute. Speed is the Gordia's key strength rather than overwhelming firepower or an incredibly thick hull. Because of their speed, Gordias are capable of encircling and wearing down the enemy before eventually destroying them. Using this tactic within the presence of our larger, more powerful vessels such as the Pylos destroyer makes the matter of elimating foes much less difficult. Elders all around the Empire has noted this as an effective method in the most recent of conflicts. The Gordia will remain a choice for future ages to come.

At a glance, one may be fooled into thinking this is some kind of upgunned Aten clone. Be warned: It's not. While its weaponry may not be that spectacular, the Gordia has almost as many hitpoints as a Deimos corvette, making it a headache to take down without some heavier weaponry. For a cruiser, the amount of hitpoints it has allows it to do more damage with its light weaponry over a longer space of time.
