Styx Heavy Cruiser
|This article is about the Type of Heavy Cruiser; for the Planet, see Styx.|
The Styx Heavy Cruiser is a Chaos starship.
The Styx is a fleet support vessel. Its huge launch bays provide much-needed Attack Craft for Chaos fleets, and its long-range lances and weapons batteries pack an impressive punch. All of this allows the Styx to hang back and rip apart enemies at distance as its fellows close in.
Originally used throughout Segmentum Obscurus and Ultima Segmentum during M32-M33, the Styx was eventually phased out in favor of new Battlecruisers coming out of Mars. It lives on in the fleets of Chaos, which greatly appreciate its abilities: Styx class ships fought against the Imperium in no fewer than thirty-nine major fleet engagements during the Gothic War.
