Nordera Pillager

The Nordera Pillager is the standard Nordera fighter.


Wings of Dawn Tech Room Description

The standard Nordera fighter has been dubbed the Pillager. Armed with four heavy cannons which fire high-explosive shells, the Pillager, while low-tech, packs quite a heavy punch and are highly effective against the reflective armor used by LSF warships. Sluggish and unwieldy craft without afterburners, shielding, or even a jump drive, Pillages are only dangerous to fighters at a distance, as all LSF strikecraft can outturn them at close range.

The Pillager is plated with large slabs of solid steel which are highly resistant to solid projectiles, but are significantly more vulnerable to energy-based weaponry. The large amount of explosives carried onboard as propellant and ammunition causes a sizeable shockwave when the craft is destroyed.

As much as the campaign downplays this ship, it's really more of a threat than people think. The Pillage may look like a piece of garbage, but these guys are surprisingly maneuverable. Heavier fighters like the Ray III W and Caliburn will often find themselves on the losing end of turning battles with these. Add to the fact they use kinetic weapons and have a buttload of hitpoints, they make for a dangerous foe for slower turning LSF targets.
