|— In-Game Description|
The Broadsword Destroyer is a Tier 2 hull with standard Miner Rebellion technology.
As a destroyer, this ship has modest firepower but very long range, taking out opponents from afar.
Strategy and Setup
Broadsword Destroyers have significantly more maximum mass and can therefore deal more damage from long range. When marked up, they often eliminate Exodus Cruisers long before the cruisers can even open fire.
At Mk III, this ship gains a shield slot, which significantly contributes to its overall survivability.
Broadsword Destroyers are unable to run from unfavorable situations, so they are not suitable guard fleets, unlike Talon Frigates which can keep the enemy busy for a longer while before being destroyed.
