Most regard the Moloch as an inferior corvette. When you end up fighting one, you may be inclined to agree. But maybe the Shivans had a different intention for this ship, one that you may be able to use in your campaigns. There's no canon data on how many fighters or bombers she can carry, but remember this when you use them in missions

But maybe the Shivans had a different intention for this ship, one that you may be able to use in your campaigns. There's no canon data on how many fighters or bombers she can carry, but remember this when you use them in missionsthey should be using that fighterbay. Perhaps the Shivans had planned on using the Moloch as an outrunner or a surgical striker. Send it into a system, position it in a good place to hide, and then attack valuable yet lightly defended targets, such as shipyards, cargo depots, or even some cruisers with its fighter and bomber . Then, find a new hiding spot or rejoin the advancing Shivan fleets. In this way, Shivans may be able to easily ruin supply lines without putting their expensive and valuable destroyers in danger (in particular, the purely-offensive Ravana). Think of the trouble that a few of these mini-carriersand their bombers/fighters could cause. Maybe this could work well in a campaign.

|The SCv Moloch|
FS2 Demo Tech Room Description
This big Shivan Mama is loaded with turrety goodness. Moloch is the name of another larger form of Aeshma, a many armed, many weaponed Indian goddess.
FS2 Tech Room Description
Only one class of Shivan ship is classified as a corvette - the SCv Moloch class. Though they're physically as large as the GTCv Deimos class, Molochs do not seem to pack the same punch. They are far more deadly than any Shivan cruisers, however.
In Hebrew, Moloch is most commonly associated with sacrifice.
Moloch is a form of the ancient Carthagian god Baal, named moloch-baal. This god was depicted as a winged taurus with a fire-breathing mouth in which men were thrown in to be sacrificed. The Bible then demonized moloch baal: Possibly the golden taurus the Hebrews were worshiping when Moses came down from the Sinai Mount was referred to this deity.
