This is one ship class that will cause a nice quick whirlpool of damage; it’s nice, very quick to handle than the tactical escort or its refit… This ship class is the newly revision Fleet Maelstrom class. Also it’s the successor to the temptress Tempest Class that recently came out into service.. even though it’s an older design, but It also replaces the existing fleet Maelstrom version that you previously have..
Finding the Maelstrom, the Blockade escort, as previously said is the strip down version of the Armitage class or the heavy escort, carrier or its refit, and fleet refit. It can handle itself pretty well, in most conditions…. Finding it in terms of weapons payload, it’s best to have dual heavy cannons in three plus one torpedo launcher, the rear on three turrets, to maximize the firepower depending what arrangements of your tactical stations are.. as the fused After Tempest tail gun is very akin to the universal point defenses system but with limited firing angle..
In view it’s basically a full on tactical and engineering class vessel, if you look at the consoles modifications below you’ll see.. Having the abilities of reinstalling the Nadion Saturation bomb console from the tempest onto the fleet Maelstrom, also it now comes with a fused aft tempest tail gun… One advantage that you have than from the Tempest is the baseline Hull Strength rating of 34,700 than of the Tempest is 31,500 which gives you an added advantage to fight the fight..
Customizing the look of your ship can add an advantage, to the way how you combat and move… the good thing though its attainable as a tier one fleet shipyard ship..it’s length is roughly about 345 meters..
