Basestar

Tank / Map Control

The Cylons, a robotic race created by humans in a distant galaxy, once fought over dominion of their local sectory. The Cylons successfully wiped out all 12 human colonies in their galaxy after a decades long war. After hunting down the last human Battlestar, the Galactica, the Cylons are looking to expand their empire. Being one of the most feared capital ships in the Galaxy, the Basestar is capable of both long range assault, and planetary bombardment. The Cylons conquer their opponents through overwhelming numbers and through the strength of their Baseship. The only way to successfully destroy a Basestar is to penetrate its powerful Core Shield. In addition to long range fighter support, the Basestar can send Cylon Centurions to the ground, each with upgradable technology and weaponry. It's only weakness is it requires time to charge its jump drive, its only form of mobility in atmospheric combat.
