The Icarus is a combat-based Carrier

   

Description

It is the third-largest Carrier in the game, smaller than only the Nyx and Borealis, making it the fifth-largest ship in the game. With its Turrets and 2 Nixesions, the Icarus is a very powerful combat-carrier. It is rarely seen in Carriers as most heavily rely on their Fighters. It has a very large amount of firepower and can fight against a variety of ships, ranging from small Frigates to large Battleships. It may even have a chance to defeat a Dreadnought, though this requires much skill.

Advantages

  • More firepower than the Revelation.
  • Higher overall maneuverability than the Nyx.
  • High firepower.
  • High-damage Fighters.
  • Powerful on its own, without the need of any Fighters.
  • High Health.
  • Great Turret placement (no blind spots).
  • All Turrets can hit if pointed directly at the target.

Disadvantages

  • Has a slow acceleration and turn speed.
  • Only has 2 Fighters.
  • Expensive.
  • No Spinals.

Strategy

  • Don't go into battle alone as multiple ships can overwhelm it quickly and make sure to send a few or more Dreadnoughts as cover.
  • Know how to pilot this kind of ship and bring Fighter pilots before entering combat.
  • Make sure to approach from below so your Turrets can be used.

Trivia

  • Apparently looks a lot like a white version of a Revelation.
  • This ship is most likely based off of the Republic Venator attack cruiser from Star Wars.
  • Named after Icarus, a Greek mythologial character.
