The GTCv Diomedes

Blue Planet: War in Heaven Tech Description

Unlike the Chimera and Bellerophon assault corvette classes, which were intended for large fleet manoeuvres where flanks were secured and overwhelming forward firepower was required, the Diomedes is a versatile strike corvette designed for independent operations. Based on the older Deimos class of corvettes, the Diomedes is effective against strikecraft and carries a respectable amount of anti-capital ship firepower. The addition of a fighterbay and fighter maintenance facilities increases the versatility of the design.

Veteran Comments

Please read the Veteran Comments policy before editing this section.

The Diomedes' primary armament, consisting of four TerSlashBlues, is placed on the port and starboard bow of the vessel. This makes the corvette good at attacking to the flanks, but it has trouble engaging targets directly forward or aft.
