Sprue of two models
The Thulagos Beam Destroyer is one of the Xygritt’s largest destroyers and the smallest to carry heavy lazers. Agile, but only lightly shielded, the Thulagos’ role is to finish off vessels stripped of shields and armour with its heavy lazer beam arrays. The twin arrays are mounted on the dorsal thermal vane, and the excess they create is considerable. Indeed, after a sustained fire, the arrays have to have a period of cool-down before they can fire again.
A regular spinal mount lazer cannon supplements the Thulagos’ main firepower and mean it is not entirely defenceless after firing the heavy lazers.
The excess power required from the heavy lazers means the Thulagos sports an impressive rating 300 point-defence system between the primary array and secondary turrets.
However, the Thulagos has one major weakness. With no secondary particle beams, it has no weaponry in its rear arc beyond the point-defence turrets. While its agility is sufficient to cover this gap in most circumstances, the Xyriats have been known to exploit this weakness. By catching an unwary Thulagos with their tractor beams and turning it to face away from the Xyriat vessel, the Xyriats can hold the helpless victim outside of the Thulagos’ rear PD range, while within range of their own light torpedoes, where it can be crippled safely. While hardly a unique vulnerability to the Thulagos, the destroyer is a high-value target, which has meant more than one Thulagos loss to capture. In at least one of these instances, a demand for surrender directed at the lower-ranking males has led to a mutiny and the Xyriats capturing the destroyer without a shot.
