The Gryphon is a dogfighting Cruiser.

   

Description

The Gryphon is a Cruiser with 2 Dual Gatling Cannons. While average in terms of speed for its class, its near instantaneous turn speed allows for skilled dogfighting unseen by many other Cruisers. This ship has a very futuristic design and nice looking engines.

Advantages 

  • High turn speed.  
  • Balanced damage to shield and hull.  
  • High damaging Spinals.  
  • Great turret accuracy.  
  • High mobility. 
  • Relatively high health. 
  • Can eliminate smaller ships with ease. 
  • Has a lot of passenger seats. 

Disadvantages 

  • Vulnerable bottom.  
  • Very large for a Cruiser.   
  • Spinals are awkward to shoot because of their placement making it hard to land a hit on smaller ships like Frigates, Swarmers, and Fighters.   

Strategy

  • Gather a fleet of Gryphons and chase down fleeing ships for easy kills.
  • Don't engage in a head-to-head fight with Battlecruisers and up, instead use your speed to bob and weave around them.
  • Very good for dogfighting. Use your agility to attack Frigates and your Dual Gatling Cannons to slowly wear down their health.

Trivia 

  • The name Gryphon is a corruption of Griffin, a creature with the body of a lion and head and wings of an eagle from Egyptian legend.
  • On the front, there are protrusions that appear to have intended to be six tiny Spinals.
  • It looks a bit like a plane.
