|The GVD Hatshepsut|
FS2 Demo Tech Room Description
Hatshepsut was one of the most powerful eygyptian 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.
Notable Ships of Class
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.
Its the best GTVA destroyer, better than the Hecate in my opinion while MUCH more able to fend off bomber attacks than the Orion. In short, this destroyer isn't the best in any one field, but is the best of them all because it can handle more types of things. It has slightly less capital firepower than Orion, which has 3 Big Green Beams and 3 more TerSlash turrets of random quality. It has more StandardFlak batteries than the Hecate, but 2 less anti-fighter beams, and no HeavyFlak or LongRangeFlak at all. It also has about 35k more hp than any other GTVA destroyer, itself a big boon.
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.
