Old Gideon Model

Description

It has decent health and high speed for a Cruiser. It is a great ship for new players because it is easy to use and has a low cost.

It does not have much in firepower but the turret placement allows all turrets to fire at the same target at once. This ship has enough maneuverability to make this tactic easy to execute. It is also great for supporting a fleet in battle.

Interior

The interior contains a pilot's seat that you will see if you go through the entry door. Behind the pilot's seat, there's a very tiny passage leading to a double-seated sofa allowing you to transport 2 players. In front there is a screen with "Oblivion" Written on it.
