Asuryani Battle Cruisers

The Battle Cruiser class represents the highest tier of line ship for the Asuryani fleets, mostly due to the fact that as a faction, they are tied to their gigantic Craftworld ships, thus don't have much need for heavier vessels to close the gap, as they aren't typically ones to stray from the protection the mammoth vessels offer.

For what it's worth however, The Phoenix Ship Battle Cruiser is a potent flagship, comparable to Battleships of other factions, carrying an equally if not more impressive armament than most, just without the few extra hundred hull points that come with being of a larger ship class.

Asuryani Battle Cruiser Stats

The Phoenix suffers a slight bit stat wise when comparing it to other end of the line warships of other factions, purely due to it's smaller than normal weight class, however this is very noticeably countered by maintaining engine speeds beyond that of the fastest Imperial Escorts. The downsides of having slightly less hull points and Battle Cruiser level assault actions aren't too significant however when you compare the fact that the good rating of the troops, still makes for better assaults than comparable Corsair vessels.

The Phoenix Ship carries a devastating arsenal of complimentary weaponry, carrying a mixed offensive load-out that only lacks torpedo tubes. Something worth mentioning off the bat, is that despite the Pulsar Cannons limited firing arc, there is so much damage output from the broadside-capable Lascannon weaponry and Launch Bays, that the Phoenix is still devastating without bringing it's Pulsar Cannons to bear every 30 seconds on the dot.

Further looking at the damage output numbers, the Phoenix is offensively one of the strongest vessels in the game, especially in the Battle Cruiser class which it punches way above. This of course is matched in terms of the astronomically high points cost of being more than 1/3rd the value of a standard sized fleet of 1200 points. It surpasses the other top-tier Aeldari vessel, the Voidstalker Corsair Battle Cruiser in raw DPS by 7 points, while falling just under the pirate ships' crits per minute by 0.3, and has stronger armor, faster engines, better troops at the cost of 400 less hull points. That being said, the Phoenix Ship actually comes in 53 points under the Voidstalker, making it in some comparisons a much stronger flagship vessel option.
