|— In-Game Description|
The Vindicator Cutter is a Tier 6 Cutter developed by Rhea Dage for the A.X.I.S. Project, and the first ship to provide a Harmonic Agility Bonus.
Strategy and Setup
The Vindicator Cutter is a direct upgrade over the Decimator Cutter, sporting the characteristic 50% Alien Damage Resistance, as well as 20% Plasma Resistance that increases over time to 40% as it is marked up.
In addition, it has increased health and mass over the Decimator, allowing it to survive longer and carry more powerful weapons.
Not only that, it also grants a Harmonic Agility bonus to the fleet, buffing the movement speed of all ships in the fleet. This allows Multiple Vindicator Cutters in the same fleet to have greatly increased forward speed, allowing them to close the distance a lot faster and thus destroy their targets.
The Vindicator Cutter still does have a inherently long Build time, and potentially a lot longer refit time if equipped with multiple weapons and specials, bringing the total build and refit time to about 1 or 2 weeks.
Its durability is also not as high as the Guardian Cruiser, having less armor slots and overall health. It will thus lose to the Guardian in a 1 on 1 engagement.
- The Vindicator is the first cutter to provide a Harmonic Agility Bonus.
- The Vindicator is mostly just a symmetrical version of the Decimator Cutter.
