Hades Heavy Cruiser
|This article is about the Chaos space vessel; for the Hive City, see Hades Hive.|
The Hades Class Heavy Cruiser is a long-range gunboat used by the Forces of Chaos.
The broadside weapons batteries of a Hades pack a hefty long-range punch, and are accompanied by even longer-ranged lances. In ship-to-ship duels, this gives a deadly one-two combo of heavy firepower beating down an enemy ship before the kill shot is delivered by lances, and all from out of range of most enemy ships' weaponry.
The Hades shines even brighter when leading a group of other long-ranged ships like the Murder- and Carnage-class cruisers, letting them combine their long-range guns into a solid wall of death awaiting any captain foolhardy enough to try to close the gap.
