The Gargoyle Carrier is the Tier 7 Umbra Carrier.
Strategy and Setup[edit | edit source]
Advantages[edit | edit source]
The Gargoyle Carrier is designed for pure offensive engagement. Its two overdrives enable it to turn the tide of any battle when used well.
Retaliation releases a barrage of 24 missiles in all directions, damaging enemy ships that are caught. This triggers when 3 or more ships are in the Gargoyle's firing range, and the effective range can be extended by using a squadron weapon with large range (9,000m)
Meanwhile, Surcease applies weapon disruption to all enemy ships in a range of 8,000m, abruptly ending their firing cycle when the Gargoyle takes enough damage.
The Gargoyle also possesses the characteristic Bonus Altairian damage and shield bypass, and has resistance to Blight Nebula fields as well as Blight and Alien Weapons.
Disadvantages[edit | edit source]
The Gargoyle cannot fit any Field Generators or Overdrive Generators. This makes it the only carrier to not have any attachable support fields to it.
The Gargoyle Carrier can be easily destroyed under prolonged fire, as it is slow and unable to escape if cornered.
