I ported this ship from Freespace2 SCP and made it playable for Legacy ( it was very hard to do ;-) . I tried to make the weapons like they are in the original game. The ship is made for TrekBattles2 but a UUM-Version and other ships will follow.
Attention ! This Ship is balanced to other FP2 Ships an could destroy your fleet very fast !

Introducing the Deimos, from Freespace2. Now i have never played freespace :O but Noci has got my attention, this is a port directly from the game, made playable for all you legacy fans out there.
Before you use this in legacy download and install this Deimos Fix, (it makes the ship playable for the UU mod as well as TBII and stops the game crashing when firing the secondary weapon)
So, back to the review
The ship itself is the same general size as the largest of Dominion battlecruisers, so hanging around it in a small ship while being on the other team is a bad idea.
The ships is surprisingly maneverable for its size, being able to do circles round your dominion or borg opponents.
Now, onto its arsenal. I give this ship the crown of being the only ship so far to bring a terrible rain of fire to any ship in its path. It is just astonishing how much firepower this vessel gives out, and as noci says, it will desomate all!
Looks and textures are great, speculars are perfect and the engine glows are where they should be.
Given a fleet of cruisers you might have a good shot at destroying this behemoth of ships. But i wouldnt chance it being on the recieving end of that barrage of fire!
This is a great port from noci, a recommended download to anyone.
---------------------------------------------- GTCv Deimos ( from the game Freespace2 SCP ) 1.0 ---------------------------------------------- Nickname: nEw-GEN Mods/Noci3 Homepage: http://www.newgenmodteam.com ---------------------------------------------- Description from Freespace Wiki : The GTCv Deimos was a common ship in FreeSpace 2, in the hands of both the GTVA and the NTF. Faster and more maneuverable than destroyers, but with more firepower than cruisers, these ships, along with the GVCv Sobek filled a much needed role in between these two classes. Their armor is made from collapsed-core molybdenum, which giving protection against beam fire, and allowing it around 80% of the hull strength of the much larger Orion and Hecate destroyers. Their reactors are highly efficient Vasudan models, which give them the power output required to maintain their many beams and other turrets. Two Deimos-class corvettes (The GTCv Actium and the GTCv Lysander), along with 2 wings of fighters, were the first GTVA vessels to officially come into contact with a Ravana-class vessel. The Lysander was destroyed by a beam from this ship before anyone even knew it was out there. I port this ship of Freespace2 SCP and make it playable for Legacy ( it was very hard to do ;-) . I tried to make the weapons like they are in the original game. The ship is made for TrekBattles2 but a UUM-Version and other ships will follow. Attention ! This Ship is balanced to other FP2 Ships an could destroy you fleet very fast !
