The Hermes is a frigate class ship for the Post-Human Coalition.

Land scout. Fast reconnaissance unit with long sight range and radar.

Background

This weak radar scout frigate may not look like much, but it provides a vital function to your army that amounts to more than just firepower. This unit is imperative in the early game in order to allow for scouting the map, locating enemies, and pinpointing important resource capture points. The Hermes integrates the PHC 1st generation sensor technology and is armed with the rotating Melera light rail gun. It is an effective scouting construct with limited combat engagement ability.

Weapon Specs

Melera Light Railgun

Standard PHC projectile weapon that fires explosive shells on a nearly 360 degree turret.

  • 7 DPS per unit
  • 400 meters range

Game Usage

  • Hermes is also a necessity, even having just 1, due to the mobile radar utility that it provides.
  • Hermes has very limited weapon to protect itself and barely contribute enough in combat and thus, should not be overproduced.
