DSCore: Nanda Devi

Late in the Himalayan line's design cycle it became apparant to the Independent Miners Guild shipwrights that an answer to heavy Capital vessels had to be found. The need was acute after Gallia was revealed. The solution chosen was a practical one: Mate a Freighter-sized power core with a stripped down version of the Lhotse frame, and finetune the design afterward. While visually similar to the Lhotse, the Nanda Devi class Bomber is anything but the same. With dual dedicated Torpedo slots, a seperate Cruise Disruptor slot, and the ability to power freighter sized shields, the vessel is a small flying fortress that can do massive damage. It however does not maneuver well, and is vulnerable to enemy Fighters] and Gunboats.

Pressed into service two months after the first prototype was completed, the Nanda Devi is an unproven design that IMG engineers believe shows considerable potential.

Handling

Review (4.88)

IMG's Heavy bomber is a pretty average one. Having great agility for a heavy bomber, it's the only pro. Size is okay, but it has a big butt making it extremely vulnerable to enemy fire. Armor is average, guns and Snac placement could be better. Same as other Heavy bombers, it's an all-in bomber whose purpose is to do as much damage as possible before going down, as you will get focused down first.

Pros: Agility

Cons: Guns and Snac placement, Big butt

Rating: 6/10
