The Syndicate Traders League (STL) Patrol Fleet has been designed to be light on its feet and rapidly deployed to deal with any incursion into space controlled by this faction. The highly capable Spur Class Battlecruiser takes up the Tier 1 slot on this fleet, bringing with it plenty of firepower and flexibility. Whilst not the most devastating spaceship in the Firestorm Galaxy, few rival its all-round capability in battle. Two Wraith Gunships add more violence to this Patrol Fleet, and 5 Shadow Class Frigates round things off. The Shadows can be fielded in a maximum of 3 to a Squadron, which allows players to field 1 full strength and 1 slightly under-strength Squadron OR take 2 of the Frigates and attach them to the Spur Class.
Although designated as a Battleship, the Phantom Class was redesigned by head of the STL family, Tauris Vylia’sal, with the sole purpose of intimidating any foe that stands before it. In truth the superstructure of this vessel is more akin to that of a Dreadnought, but it sits as a Battleship in the Tier 1 fleet building structure. As a result of its bulk, the Phantom certainly packs the punch of such a vessel, and is majestic to behold in battle as it swoops in to destroy its foes. The addition of 5 Shadow Class Frigates allows 2 vessels to be attached to a Phantom and the remaining 3 create their own Squadron.
