Another new vessel launches from the painting table to the gaming table today, as I have finished the squadron of new Yale-class Heavy Destroyers for the Federated States of America. This vessel carries a powerful Bombard Gun and not much else - but what does this bring to the already notoriously long-range Core Nation?
|Yale-class Heavy Destroyer squadron|
|Longer, larger hulls and layered armour give them durability superior to Destroyers and Frigates|
|The powerful Bombard Gun is built into the hull of the vessel|
|Princeton-class Gunships also carry immense Bombard turrets, and could work well in conjunction with the Heavy Destroyers to pummel the enemy without fear of reciprocation|
|Lexington-class Light Cruisers bring comparable firepower for a competitive cost|
|Guilford-class Destroyers offer long-range rocketry to compete with their bigger brothers|
Luckily, the models look good, and were fun to paint!
Here are some additional pictures of the ship alongside fellow vessels of the Federated States of America...

|The Yale-class Heavy Destroyer was easy to paint, bringing little "new" to the FSA design that has not been encountered before. The layered armour and decorative star on the top of the vessel deserve extra attention, as well as the main armament|
