The Trident Destroyer is a Tier 3 hull with advanced Miner Rebellion technology.
As a destroyer, this ship has modest firepower but very long range, taking out opponents from afar.
Strategy and Setup[edit | edit source]
Advantages[edit | edit source]
Trident destroyers compared with its predecessor, the Broadsword destroyer, has more mass and armour. It can be configured with more firepower and durability easily.
It is not recommended to equip weapons that have blind spots, as ships can very easily enter those regions and attack, rendering the Trident destroyer helpless.
Trident destroyers can be upgraded to MK IV where it receives an extra weapon slot.
Trident destroyers range bonus allows it to engage enemy ships from a long distance. It can usually land the first shots in battle, excluding squadrons.
Trident destroyers are very effective at destroyers when upgraded to MK IV.
Disadvantages[edit | edit source]
Like all destroyers, they are rather fragile, easy to flank with agile ships and lack raw amounts of firepower.
As destroyers, Tridents are unable to retreat from or pursue most ships.
Trident destroyers are particularly oriented for PvP combat, both fleet combat and basing. It can also attack mid level VEGA fleets but not efficiently since it lacks firepower to eliminate VEGA cruisers and battleships quickly enough to avoid sustaining damage. It lacks the mobility to avoid fire like cruisers and battleships.
