The Retro Aegis is the retro version of the Aegis, a very powerful shield-shredding Limited Battleship.


Description

The Retro Aegis is rather large for a Battleship with two large blast shields at it side wielding amazing shield shredding capabilities.

Interior

The Retro Aegis starts with a walkway into a large hallway with many windows on both sides along with many rooms and seats at the end along with a ramp going up to the 2nd floor. The 2nd floor is just like the first floor has many windows and a large open hallway leading to the pilot seat and the control consul. The 3rd floor is just a hallway with large windows going across.

Advantages

  • Above average shield health.
  • Amazing turn speed.
  • High top speed of 80.
  • High turret DPS of 272.
  • Surprisingly costs less than its non limited counterpart the Aegis coming in at 108,478 credits

Disadvantages

  • Weak hull integrity, which makes it very fragile without shields.
  • Due to the turrets only being located at the front, this ship has poor line of sight at the sides and rear of the ship.
  • Limited classification, making this a high priority target.
  • No kinetic weaponry of any sort, making for very poor damage to hull.
  • Extremely weak to shield breakers, and effectively counters itself.
  • Worse than the Warden in every way.

Strategy

  • Team up with a hullbreaker ship, as your shield-melting armament will help a lot when combined with the kinetic weaponry of another ship.
  • NEVER attempt to tank in this ship, it does not have the durability to do so. Instead, let a Dreadnought or a battleship with better durability tank instead.
  • Much like it's normal counterpart, it's hull is fragile so disengage from a fight before you're hulled(ideally 1k or 1.5k shield HP).
  • If you see a shield breaker like the Warden or Zeus approaching you, run as fast as you can back to the nearest neutral or friendly starbase.

Version History

  • Added in version .73a3 as part of the 2021 Retro Ship Event.
  • Gained teleporters and Shields/Hull increased from 4000/700 to 5000/1500 after the event ended.

Trivia

  • This ship is the old version of the Aegis.
  • The Retro Aegis looks similar to the Ankylon Titan from Sins of a Solar Empire: Rebellion.
