We’re excited to announce the release of the new Resolute Class Advanced Heavy Cruiser. This Tier 6 starship is based upon the original design of the Excelsior Class starship. Like other Tier 6 ships it has been heavily retrofitted to include the latest in state-of-the-art technologies and has received a 2410 visual update.
The Resolute Class Advanced Heavy Cruiser comes equipped with the Tactical Maneuvering Matrix universal console. When activated it provides a sizeable boost to turn rate, damage resistance and damage. This boost scales with the number of nearby enemies. In addition, this console provides a passive bonus to turn rate and damage resistance.
In addition, this starship can unlock the Improved Weaponized Emitters starship trait by achieving level 5 in their Starship Mastery. While this trait is slotted your Aceton Beam and Overwhelm Emitters abilities cause radiation damage over time to enemies within 3km of the target.
The Resolute Class Advanced Heavy Cruiser can use all costume parts from any existing Advanced Heavy Cruiser regardless if you own the Advanced Heavy Cruiser or the Advanced Heavy Cruiser Retrofit.
Look for a follow up blog that will detail the stats on this awesome new Tier 6 cruiser and its fleet variant in the near future!
