Dragonship class

A Dragonship is an Eldar space ship of cruiser class.

Overview

The Dragonship is not a specific design like most other named vessel classes, but rather is a generic name for Eldar vessels of a larger size. The vessels under the name Dragonship have a similar armament and adhere to the same tactics but can be varied within these classes.[1]

Variants are given their own name within the Dragonship "class," which is always a variant including "Dragon." For example, Dragonships piloted largely or exclusively by Spirit Stones are called Ghostdragons and vessels designed to work far from supply lines are called Void Dragons. Less common variations such as different sail configurations, weapons and even sizes are known to exist, but in lower numbers.[1]
