Wings of Dawn Tech Room Description

The Dragonslave is a powerful missile with a tremendous blast radius. It's primary use is for disruption of fighter and bomber formations or to deal massive area effect damages in furballs. The user firing should be cautious, as firing the missile too close to the target may also destroy his craft as well. As such, it's best used in at standoff range and not in a dogfight.

This missile is often considered as WoD's trebuchet. This isn't true. It can't inflict nearly the half of the subsystem damage the Trebuchet inflicts. The Trebuchet has also far more range. HOWEVER, the Dragonslave was never considered as being an anti-subsystem missile. You need some luck to kill multiple targets with a Trebuchet pair. The Dragonslave's purpose IS to blow up multiple targets into hell and it does the job very well.
