The Missile Destroyer is an anti-Strike Craft destroyer, based on the Missile Destroyer used by the Taiidan Empire.

Background Edit

The ship was in fact a modified Destroyer. Instead of ion cannons and mass drivers however, four massive missile lauchers were mounted on the bow section. Missile destroyers were capable of take down large groups of fighters and each launcher stored up to 8 missiles and produced an additional one each 2.3 seconds, thanks to which a Perdition was a hard enemy to engage by all light units. However, the biggest flaw of the ship was disclosed during attacks on larger units such as cruisers or even other destroyers. When the destroyer had run out of missiles the destroyer was left with a very small amount of firepower and could then be easily destroyed. As such, Missile Destroyers should not go without an escort. Perditions usually operated in groups of two or more, thanks to which they could handle various tasks, and easily destroy very large groups of corvettes.
