The PVF Anubis


Description:

FS1 Tech Room Description

The Anubis is the weakest fighter in the Vasudan Navy. However, they are extremely cheap to manufacture, and are often used in swarm situations to try to overwhelm the opponent with numbers. A few radical Vasudans have been known to load the ship with explosives and attempt to steer themselves into GTA capital ships. The first occurrence of this was the battle of Rexias 4, where the GTD Goliath was destroyed by a squadron of kamikaze pilots.

Due to its lack of afterburners and low weapon capacity, the GTA has classified the Anubis as a class D threat.

Developer Notes

Lowest power Vasudan craft. Offers little in the way of offensive or defensive capabilities. Best used in swarm situations.

Name origin

Anubis is the Greek spelling of the Egyptian god of the dead. He is also a guide and the guardian to the recently deceased. It is said that Anubis's father was Osiris.

Veteran Comments

Read the Veteran Comments policy before editing this section.


The Anubis is fairly fast, but only has one primary bank with 2 guns, cutting down on both its flexibility and primary firepower. It has horrible defenses: shields and armor are poor; it's better than the GTDr Amazon, but not by much.


Several user campaigns make use of the Anubis, but are generally kind enough to add afterburners. The fighter actually handles much like a slightly less capable Ulysses. Not a BAD ship, in the right hands, but not a good one either.
