Terran Battlecruiser

Description Edit

The Battlecruiser is a slow, powerful, sturdy late game capital ship.Can use Warp Drive to teleport over small distances. Can be upgraded to use Yamato Cannon a powerful long range, single target weapon. It's arguably the strongest unit in the game, easily beating the other capital ship, the Carrier, thanks to the Yamato Cannon. Contrary to Carriers, the Battlecruisier's regular weapons only have a better than average 7 range, being matched by static defense. They have 500 HP, the highest among units, and a very high 3 armor, being matched by upgraded Ultralisks and exceeded only by Carriers which have 4, but Carriers don't apply their armor to the shields, which are 1/3 of their total HP.

On the other hand Battlecruisers are very expensive, take Supply 6, a long time to build, are slow and even with Warp Drive have a hard time retreating if things start going awry and their DPS isn't particularly great (but they have great burst damage thanks to Yamato Cannon). They can obviously be fearsome when massed.
