Torch Ship

Torch Ship The Mon Saanti Torch Ship is a powerful first strike weapon, employed to disrupt enemy lines early in a battle. The initial approach of the Torch Ship is slow, masking its dangerous attack pattern: Without warning, the Torch Ship will fire its lethal quad laser batteries, then quickly accelerate to ramming speed using a powerful stream of plasma fire. The Pilots will then try to ram enemy capital ships, or even enter the atmosphere of besieged planets to strike civilian targets on the surface below.

Should a Torch Ship approach, do not stay in its path for long. Although you might be able to destroy the craft before its laser cannons are activated, a safer alternative is to try to intercept the Torch Ship during its brief acceleration phase.
