Appearance

Permafrost's spinal pattern

The Permafrost is a rather, large destroyer that has a unique shape, resembling other previous event ships like the Grim. The cockpit is a small cabin located inside a ring of arms and many turrets orbiting around it. The ship's detailing also has icy spikes around it and there are snow/ice particles seemingly flowing to the cabin.


The interior is a small cockpit with a detailed, icy chair, and 2 control panels displaying the text: "Making a List..." and "Checking it twice...".



Advantages

  • Is effective against both shields and hull.
  • Good health for a destroyer.
  • The highest damage output of its class, higher than some Dreadnoughts.
  • Rapid-fire and accurate turrets makes it effective against both Small and Capital ships.
  • 100% Drift Percentage makes it good at evading shots and consistently pointed to your target.

Disadvantages

  • Rather large size makes it easier to hit with spinals.
  • Requires good Spinal aim to be effective in PvP.
  • Extremely expensive for a Destroyer, requiring a Class D Permit
  • Will be targeted due to being a Limited Ship.

Strategy

  • Use your speed and 100% drift to your advantage to dodge as much incoming fire as possible.
  • Use the high firepower on this ship to Dive and chase down vulnerable or isolated Capital Ships.
  • This ship is good for Pirating bigger Miners and Freighters.
  • Beware of any explosions from ships you destroy; Your low health will lead to a quick destruction if you don’t pay attention.
  • Always try to hit your spinals, they account for a large portion of your DPS.
  • Avoid going too close to a Capital Ship, as you will have a hard time hitting your Spinals and their Turrets will shred you.
  • Be wary when attacking ships larger than Dreadnoughts as their powerful weaponry could easily tear you apart.
  • Know when to retreat, this ship is very costly for its class and isn’t worth losing.
