The Hawklight is considered to be one of the strongest Battleships in Galaxy, especially as a PvP ship.

   

Description

Many players have used the Hawklight for sieges; however, it also shines as a PvP ship. Its powerful array of Turrets and Spinals allow it to quickly destroy ships of many different sizes. The placement of the Turrets makes it very easy to land the first few hits, but if facing more agile ships with turn speeds comparable to the Gryphon, the Hawklight will have difficulty landing powerful hits.

Interior

The interior of the Hawklight is fairly small. You'll enter an empty dock port with a single teleporter to the bridge, an empty room with a single pilot's seat facing a window.

Advantages

  • Decent health pool.
  • Perfect for destroying attacking or defending ships in a siege or counter-siege.
  • Very high Spinal damage to hulled ships.
  • Cheap compared to other battleships.

Disadvantages

  • Hard to fight any ship that has high mobility due to its low turn speed.
  • While it is not technically a blind spot, the bottom of the ship is rather exposed to tiny ships.
  • Hard to damage hull if you can't aim with Spinals.
  • Very large, almost Dreadnought size.
  • Several blind spots.
  • Mediocre Turret firepower.

Strategy

  • It is a great ship for fighting Battlecruisers and other large ships.
  • Unless you're a skilled pilot, warp away from ships like the Razor Wing.

  • This ship is asymmetrical, as the smaller wings are different in size, shape, and position.
