The GVD Hatshepsut


Description:

FS2 Demo Tech Room Description

Hatshepsut was one of the most powerful Egyptian queens in history and was pharaoh in all but name when her husband died. Like its namesake, this destroyer is is the "reigning pharaoh" of the Vasudan Fleet. Over 24 turrets, 5 beam weapons, and 2 seperate fighter bays, this ship is to be feared and repected to all who go against it .

FS2 Tech Room Description

In 2360, Allied Command commissioned the first of the GVD Hatshepsut-class destroyers. The Vasudan contractor Akheton designed the Hatshepsut to efficiently integrate the new beam cannon. The process of retrofitting the older Typhon-class warships yielded vessels prone to system failures and reactor overloads. Though a handful of modified Typhons remain in service, the Hatshepsut has taken over as the primary Vasudan destroyer. With 24 turrets, 5 beam cannons, and 2 fighterbays, destroyers such as GVD Psamtik of Deneb's 13th Battle Group serve at the vanguard of the modern Vasudan fleet.

FS2 MTS Model Description

In 2360, Allied Command commissioned the first of the GVD Hatshepsut-class destroyers. The Vasudan contractor Akheton designed the Hatshepsut to integrate the new beam cannon efficiently within its power grid. The process of retrofitting the older Typhon-class warships yielded only marginal results, with vessels prone to system failures and reactor overloads. Though a handful of modified Typhons remain in service, the Hatshepsut has taken over its role as the primary Vasudan carrier and command ship. With 24 turrets, 5 beam cannons, and 2 fighterbays, destroyers such as GVD Psamtik of Deneb’s 13th Battle Group serve at the vanguard of the modern Vasudan fleet.

Veteran Comments

Read the Veteran Comments policy before editing this section.


The Hatshepsut is not as effective against fighters than the GTD Hecate-class, but her BVas beams mean danger to anything that's larger than a bomber and can be targeted by heavy beam cannons. It is a setback that the beam turrets are large, thereby being easy to hit and vulnerable. On the plus side, the destroyer itself is more durable than any other GTVA destroyer.


It's the best GTVA destroyer, better than the Hecate or the Orion simply because it has no specific weakness. Besides its superiority against the Hecate and the Orion in terms of anti-warship and anti-fighter armament respectively, it has a better profile (which allows for a greater field of fire) than either and has 35% more hitpoints than them.


Curiously mounts several Fusion mortar batteries in the multipart turrets on its upper surface, which looks somewhat odd and seems out of character for such a warship.


Mentioned above, the Hatshepsut can be very effective against bombers. On both sides, but more on it's right side, there are many flak batteries. Though only Standard Flak, wings of fighters and bombers are decimated.Even cruisers and corvettes take surprising damage when near the Hatshepsut's front-right or front-left sides.
