The Crucible is a Spinal-focused Destroyer.

Description

The Crucible is a fast Spinal Destroyer that can deal massive damage for its class. It stands out by having a red trail behind it.

Interior

The interior of this ship is very small. With only a small pilot seat and a screen (decal), the ship's interior is entered through a nocollide block at the top.

Advantages

  • High Spinal firepower.
  • Fast and agile.
  • Very good turn speed.
  • Small and hard to hit for larger ships.
  • High shield for its class.
  • Useful in swarms against larger ships.
  • Greater than average destroyer health.

Disadvantages

  • Low hull health.
  • If you can't aim Spinals then you will have a serious problem doing damage to anything.
  • Easier to spot and track due to its trail.

Strategy

  • Hunt for larger targets or in groups as you are very unlikely to be hit by larger turrets.
  • Use the speed, along with the quick reloading Spinals to pirate small miners effectively.
