Destroyer Rebellion

The Rebellion Destroyer is a Rebellion ship in Escape Velocity Nova.

"General 'Sundown' Smart has been pulling his hair out over the Rebellion's desperate lack of ships and manpower. He and Frandall recently had a breakthrough when they masterminded the theft of thirty E-41s from mothballs in orbit at the wreckers at Spacedock II. The ancient craft have proved difficult to improve, as such a large task is beyond Donald Chick and his small but dedicated group of shipwrights. They have had to be satisfied with gross tweaks to power output and shield strength, and have given the task of general refits to maintenance personnel." ― Buying a Rebel Destroyer
"Several old E-41s are all in a line across the gantries of the docking bay. "We've got a backlog of Destroyers to fix," shouts a construction worker over the noise. "If you're looking for an operational one, the far bays hold the ones that are mostly on-line." You thank him, and head in the direction he indicated." ― Hiring a Rebel Destroyer

Gameplay Analysis

"The Destroyer is the backbone of the Rebel Navy. Armed with both short-range and long-range weaponry, these vessels are forced to perform under any circumstances. As they are susceptable to attacks from many fighters, you will rarely find one without at least some other ship to help protect them." ― EVula Survival Guide
Like the Dragon variant, the Carrier variant of the Rebel Destroyer carries 4 Rebel Viper bays, which when removed, frees up 200 tons of expansion room. This is very nice for a player who has or can accumulate huge sums of money to upgrade it, but doesn't change the fact that despite all that room, it's still rather unwieldly.

Properly upgraded, the Carrier variant can have a very formidable weapons platform, and trumps any federation technology vessel save the Unrelenting, which is really Pirate tech.
