I believe Emily indicated it was a "pre-fall cruiser" and that was all that she was allowed to say.

It's up on the webstore, the sculpt is gorgeous, and the rules are fun. I'll be getting two!

I don't like the idea of a hard-to-get model having unique rules. It can be very bad for the health of the game if it's powerful or better than other, similar options.

yeah previous exclusives have been scenerycollectors pieces or variant sculpts. actual new unit that is only available ltd edition doesn't bode well.

It's the Remnant Centurion Cruiser and is used by both UCM and PHR.
It's stats are identical for the two factions other than the UCM having slighty higher CAWS Damage in exchange for -2" Scan

Rules: https://cdn.shopify.com/s/files/1/0965/1274/files/Centurion_Class_Cruiser.pdf?7465248998669695855

Seems fine to me

It's a principle thing. I haven't really spent too much thought on how good it is itself, but if it's kicking butt in the run-up to a tournament, you can't exactly go out and buy some then.

It's pretty stronk. That 3 dmg turret, arm 2+, and 12 hull make it one of the strongest medium tonnage warships out there. If this is an example of what we can expect a potential Remnant fleet then color me impressed. It's not even that expensive compared to a Rio or Orion. It doesn't come out until September, but I bet we see nearly every PHR and UCM fleet fielding one. Once again when seeing pre-invasion tech I am left wondering why in the heck did they stop making these??

They should aviable in February. Mind the different Notation of date in US ans Europe.

Why they stopped them. Well do you prefer one real supertank u can't replace fast enough or maintain or 10 Tanks that achive the same but are cheaper and easier to repair?

It has the equivalent of 6 Lock 3+ Shots in 1 Weapon, but in regards to Firepower Scourge or Shaltari easily beat it with the equivalent of 8-10 Lock 3+ shots.

It might still be slightly to good but it is not as game breaking as some make it out to be.

German space magic for PHR would you like to know more?
