The Interdictor cruiser was designed a major part of the Empire's response to the elusive Rebel threat. Its gravity-well projectors are capable of wrenching enemy ships out from hyperspace, and its deployment along one of the galaxy's hyperspace lanes can spell doom for unsuspecting Rebel captains.
The Interdictor Expansion Pack introduces the Interdictor miniature as a medium-base Imperial ship, as well as two ship cards, and fourteen upgrades, including the new Experimental Retrofit upgrades, gravity well projectors and grav shift reroutes.
Interdictor Expansion Pack
The Interdictor cruiser was designed as a major part of the Empire's response to the elusive Rebel threat. Although its shape resembles that of a Star Destroyer, the Interdictor is smaller, and it sacrifices the Star Destroyer's focus on shields and firepower in favor of advanced gravity-well projectors that are capable of wrenching enemy ships out from hyperspace. When an Interdictor is deployed along one of the galaxy's hyperlanes, it can spell doom for any unsuspecting Rebel captain, cutting off the Alliance's vital escape routes and strangling the galaxy's last hope for freedom.
In Armada, the Interdictor is a solid, medium-base starship that is in some ways comparable to the Victory-class Star Destroyer. However, the similarities are mostly superficial, and any extended exploration of the Interdictor will reinforce how much its design centers around its Experimental Retrofit upgrade. After all, the Interdictor Suppression Refit costs you five fleet points more than the most expensive basic Victory-class Star Destroyer, the Victory II. Still, for those five extra fleet points, you lose two dice from your forward battery armament, as well as one point of shields each from both your left and right hull zones. What you get in return, though, is an unprecedented ability to impact the battlefield and the game through the use of Experimental Retrofits like the G-8 Experimental Projector and G7-X Grav Well Projector .
Naturally, as the Interdictor is bound to make significant use of its upgrades, the Interdictor Expansion Pack comes with fourteen upgrades in addition to its two ship cards and pre-painted miniature starship. You will also find a rulesheet and all necessary tokens and command dials.
