The Sabre Tooth is one of the fastest ships in Galaxy and is the fastest Destroyer.

Description

The Sabre Tooth has no interior and 2 uniquely-shaped wings on both sides. It is the only ship with these sort of wings.

Interior

The Sabre Tooth has effectively no interior. There is a small black square that acts as the pilot's seat, and the rest of the interior simply follows the shell outline of the ship.

Advantages

  • Extremely high Speed.
  • Great for scouting.
  • Extremely hard to hit due to its speed and shape especially for larger ships.
  • Good shield damage.
  • Strong spinals.
  • Decent shields.

Disadvantages

Strategy

  • The Sabre Tooth's fast speed makes it very frustrating for larger ships to hit it.
  • In combat, the Viper may be the better choice, with lower cost, higher turn speed, and smaller size, making it harder to hit. The Sabre Tooth has higher health, however.
  • The ship can be used to scout the Mega Base, or in sieges scout what is surrounding the area of the Starbase that is getting sieged or scout what is surrounding the enemy base.
  • Stay in your enemies' blind spots, or use your speed to dodge incoming fire.
  • It has high shield damage, making it possible to hull an unprotected Alien Punisher.
