THE ATHENS-CLASS LIGHT CRUISER FOR DROPFLEET COMMANDER

The Athens-class Light Cruiser is one of the Show-Only model from Hawk Wargames this year, a modification of the Saratoga-class Light Cruiser and a lovely stand-in for the Osaka-class Light Cruiser. It features one of the new paired Mass Drivers in place of the two turrets, and is a far sleeker version of the plastic Light Cruiser, much like its sister ship, the Saratoga. I was lucky enough for a friend to pick this up for me from Salute, but unlike the Saratoga-class I think I will stick with one. There are very few situations I can think of where I would need two squadrons of Osaka-equivalents!

The latest generation hull design marks it as a new ship, ready to counter the Scourge invasion of the Colonies

Thanks for reading,
