Nightshade Destroyer[1]

The Nightshade Class Destroyer is a class of Eldar space vessel.


The Nightshade is extremely fast and designed to deploy ordnance close to the enemy before retreating. When coupled with the highly destructive torpedoes used by the Eldar (including neutron or vortex warheads), the Nightshade is basically a weapon which can strike anywhere quickly and at will. There is evidence that three Nightshades crippled the Chaos battleship Damnation's Fury after three successive torpedo runs despite the protection of a number of other ships and escort vessels.[1]
