Canon Edit

The Atlas is an iconic remnant of Virgon's imperialist history.

Slow and densely armoured the Atlas carrier now provides powerful fighter support for modern Colonial fleet groups.

Description Edit

Atlas Broadsides

Though it has all-around firepower, the Atlas is best used in a broadside against large targets.

The Atlas carrier is the only way for Colonial Fleet to carry two squadrons in a single ship without the expense of a Battlestar. It is the least manouverable vessel in Colonial Fleet by a significant margin, and this combined with its limited and inaccurate weaponry make it of limited use as a battleship.

However, its heavy broadsides can provide valuable supporting firepower to other warships if agility is not required.

The Atlas's very heavy armour is essential, as this clumsy ship will be unable to flee a fight. Unusually for a large Colonial ship, its armament is vertically symmetrical.

Atlas Ventral

The Atlas is the largest Colonial ship not to carry any guided munitions launchers. Its weak DRADIS will also be outclassed by any other fleet ships around it.
