Limited Ship

This ship is a limited ship, and could only be acquired for a limited time or it has since become limited.
You lose it forever once it is destroyed.

The Sakala is an exclusive Carrier for those who contribute to or purchase from the Galaxy Store during specific periods of time or won the Carrier during a give away.

   

Description

The Sakala is a mid-sized Carrier. It has a large bridge section connected by transparent pathways. The Carrier contains Fourteen Firehawk Fighters.

Advantages

  • No blind spots.
  • Maneuverable for its size.
  • It's fast for a Carrier.
  • Very powerful Turrets that do balanced damage.
  • When used along Fighters, can do unspeakable amounts of damage.
  • Has as much cargo hold as a Prospector.
  • High health for a Carrier.

Disadvantages

  • It won't catch up to anything like a Battlecruiser with its speed.
  • No Spinals.
  • Once lost, can never be re-obtained meaning that it is gone FOREVER unless you rebuy from the store during a promotion, or win a giveaway.
  • A target for Pirates.
  • Mostly targeted in fleets.
  • Bad Turret placement.

Strategy

  • Be certain to have teammates willing to pilot the Fighters.
  • Use sparingly. This is a huge target for Pirates.
  • Avoid Dreadnoughts and Prototype ships.
  • Don't use this as your everyday Carrier. It is a limited ship. Treat it as such to avoid losing it.
  • The low health but high damage with Fighters can work wonders to kill Miners and Freighters who have drifted too far from a Starbase.
