Gunstar

Support / Assasin

The Gunstar was once deployed by the Star League to combat emperor Xur and the Ko-Dan Armada. A single Gunstar is considered to be a serious threat, even against an entire fleet of ships. A prototype carrying the infamous "Death Blossom" managed to single handedly destroy the entire Ko-Dan Armada. Housing a complement of laser cannons which can fire in every direction, there is no safe direction from which to approach the Gunstar. It's Particle Beams can do serious damage to capital ships, and it's Photon Bolt missiles are strong enough to penetrate even the strongest of shields. The Gunstar is superior in every way to the smaller Ship Commanders and gains bonus damage and resistance against them, but may fall short when dueling capital ships.
