    According to the information (which is very little and does not explain anything), the weapon "Redeemer missile" + the especial "Perian Fuel" module will work just like the "Manifold missile" weapon or the "Vector torpedo" ... or a mixture of those two?
    I was thinking more like hydra.

    Especially with an explosive weapon.  Ancient Outposts will fall pretty easily and you might not even need a surpressor in your fleet to manage drones/squads

    Shatter has 5,200 on a Nondestroyer, and then 7,800 on a destroyer, what.

    As ND said 6500 on a BS..  6900 is 400 more than 6500 no matter where your from.  Also  Destroyers are slow, the Pegs moves at frigate speed.  

    Stats....  They make the game playable (maybe not fun, but playable)

    With knowing these, the pegasus is also fairly weak in armor, only 2 slots, the liberators have a much highet chance at winning using shatter or eclipse than the enforcer does do to the range difference, i believe the pegasus is designed around taking down cruisers and cutters with overwhelming range (with net torp cutters will have an issue even if they resist stasis). Battleships are around even with them (of course this highly depends on setups) destroyers are the most likely to take them out do to range and the fact shatter and eclipse can be deadly if your not careful

    I agree. But most players don't engage Destroyers with their smaller vessels..  The biggest way to deal with destroyers in a fleet is to kite them with the carrier after beating down the other ships.    

    These ships are built to as you said earlier put more Harmonics in the fleets.   I fleet of five of these with a Pal will be formidable.  But I think a Destroyer fleet with a Pal will be the obvious counter.  

    I could be wrong.

    Cyrus and Junren have stated it has the Frigate firing arc (supported by the fact the hull has Frigate style engines) . Check the first page here: https://community.kixeye.com/discussion/719954

    No test server this time, so we're in the dark until Reckoning begins.

    My guess is that it is supposed to be super OP so that everyone coins to get it before the game crashes and burns. Well, crashes and burns FULLY. But that's just a theory.

    They would reach 10 points of harmonic warfare and siege, 15 points of shield (they each have 1 point of warfare and siege pre built and 2 reactors have it, all 3 reactors have shield) and 5 points in speed without chase thrusters or agility carrier... So when built to the max, theyll likely have 10-15 points of all 4 of those making them pretty much have all around buff. Destroyer is really the only counter except for a well built enforcer fleet... These things are built to maul cutters and cruisers lol

    "Frigate like" Characteristics does not mean any specific characteristic will be present....or to what degree.... Only concrete thing they have shown is speeds....which are same as Frigates..... End of week we will know.

    Destroyers are not counters to them, as you can not make them fight. You know speed and all, just gonna run.

    I pushed the desktop version of the site on my phone and tablet and I now have the desktop UI, while retaining the mobile link, thus I can edit my comments. I use the Chrome browser.

    The info card in the game lists it as using Frigate characteristics.  It even has all the stats of a frigat.

    Cyrus, as a mod, has an official voice when he tells : "Frigate firing arc."
    Just read the comments before posting.

    In the description is says its for missiles and torpedoes,  nothing about explosive exclusivity (wow that's a big word haha) So does this mean it will work and boost the range of Xeno Cluster Missiles and Xeno Bombardment torpedoes?

    I don't think any explosive weapon is not a missile or a torpedo

    Bomber Squadron, Charger Swarm, and Redhawk Drone are explosive weapons squadrons. :tongue:

    Ironic, huh?

    Obviously all explosive weapons are either Missiles or Torpedoes.
