The SC Lilith


The SC Lilith was a heavy cruiser class used by the Shivans in both the Great War and the Second Shivan Incursion. The Lilith offered a heavy beam cannon against capital ships and numerous other turrets against fighters.

Description:

FS1 Tech Room Description

While far more rare than its counterpart, the Cain-class cruiser, the Lilith is one of the most ferocious cruisers we have had the misfortune of combating. It has extremely strong weapon systems, as well as a very thick armor which our cannons can barely penetrate. One for one, the Lilith can easily destroy any of our cruisers. It is for this reason that they should be considered a primary target for all bomber squadrons in the GTA.

The Lilith should be considered a Class A threat to any ships that encounter it.

FS2 Tech Room Description

The SC Lilith class of Shivan cruisers is a far-deadlier foe than the Cain class. Nearly impenetrable armor plating enables it to withstand tremendous punishment, enabling its nine turrets to lash out at warships and combat spacecraft with impunity.

The Lilith is, in FS2, probably the single most effective cruiser in the game. It gains this title simply because it is ridiculously difficult to destroy. This cruiser can survive a dual Helios hit! This thick armor also makes it very difficult knock out critical subsystems and weapons, while its main beam cannon is a destroyer-scale LRed, giving it a nasty punch. Despite its durablity, its antifighter defenses are only marginally superior to the Cain, with its Shivan Cluster launchers instead of Fighterkiller missiles.


Ridiculously well armed and protected, but extremely badly armed for combating fighters. Interesting how the Moloch can mount 3 SReds, the same as the Rakshasa, but this can mount one sodding huge LRed despite being smaller than the Moloch and only slightly bigger in total size than the Rakhasa.


If this ship comes out during an escort mission, be sure to have at least 3 Trebuchets and use them to destroy that LRed Beam before they tear your escort to shreds.


The Cain and the Lilith. What really lets every Cain and Lilith down is that they have absolutely no rear protection at all! That SAAA can hit every in front of, below and to the sides, but it can't strike any enemy fighter or bomber at six O' clock or above! What's worse is that this very turret is best taken out from the rear, where it's visible for all to see. Just blow it up with a volley of Tempests, and the cruiser's a goner.


Name origin

In Hebrew mythology, Lilith was a female Mesopotanian demon associated with spreading illnesses and diseases.
