The SCv Moloch


Description:

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.

Developer Notes

None

Veteran Comments

Moloch is a poor excuse for a Shivan vessel and an even poorer excuse for a corvette. A Lilith poses more threat to allied forces than this big target. Its only saving grace is its ability to carry fighters, but its never enough to turn the tide of battle.

The Moloch is an opponent to be taken seriously, despite all the negative commentary, and the statement a Deimos can take one on successfully is somewhat...debateable. Shivans use much more effective (and faster-cycling) direct-fire beams, of which the Moloch has three SRed-types. Like most Shivan capital craft, its antifighter defenses are rather less impressive then those of a comparable Terran ship, but the Moloch's defenses are nonetheless probably the best, pound for pound, of any Shivan capital craft, and its well-posistioned flak guns can be very dangerous to the unwary.

Some people think of the Moloch as a joke, but the joke is on you when its fighters come out and tear you to pieces. The SCv Moloch is not a vessel to take lightly. It may not be able to hurt you as badly as the Terran Deimos, but that's what its fighter bay is for.
