Available at level 30. Dreadnought available at start. Monarch and Mantis can be won in event chests.
The ships that transport your hangars are now ready to assist you in battle. Each useful action that you take on the battlefield helps calibrating the ship guns. The more active you are, the faster your Orbital Support becomes available. When you press the Orbital Support button, the ship delivers a devastating blast at your target's location.
UNLOCKS AT LVL 30 FOR FREE
The universally used classics that allowed corporations to bring their military potential to humanity’s new home. Numerous Dreadnought crash sites can be found on Earth.

Upgrades: Ability accumulation rate, Aegis power, Repair over time bonus
Turret slots: SUPPORT, DEFENSIVE
Turrets improve your Orbital Support with additional effects. The effect triggers together with your ship's main caliber. The following Turrets are available in update 7.3:
Target Ray Cannon (offensive): Snipes the target with a laser beam after a short delay. Will not trigger if no target is locked on. The target cannot evade the hit.
Periodic Fix Station (support): Applies repair over time to all allies within the given range from your robot.
Aegis Self System (defensive): Applies Aegis shield to your robot. The shield remains active until destroyed.
Orbital Support aiming
The Orbital Support button becomes active as soon as you select a target. The enemy robot that is enclosed in the red frame is considered to be your selected target. The main strike of your Orbital Support will be aimed at its location. If you use manual lock-on, your "saved" target will have the priority over the target that is currently within your reticle.
New Robot: Revenant
A teleporting tank that can strike almost anywhere. This robot boasts superb durability as well as two lateral shields. Unlike other slow brawlers, Revenant doesn't fear being immobilized with lock-down or frozen. Its ability allows it to remove all negative effects, become temporary immune to them, and teleport to the spot in front of its target. Additionally, Revenant takes no "grey" structural damage from sound blasters as long as its ability is active.
Aggressive blink: Robot teleports to the point in front of the enemy, drops all negative effects, and activates modernized defense mechanisms. The robot receives immunity to DOT, SUPPRESSION, FREEZE, ROOT, BLAST, EMP, and also keeps the maintainability of its hull.
New Weapons: Bane, Toxin
Close range acid-throwers that melt hulls with aggressive chemicals and leave a lasting effect on the target that deals damage over time.
New pilots: Svyatogor Belov, Vasilisa Maximova
Svyatogor is the current leader of Yaga Gang, an extravagant group of mercenaries with a particular love for pancakes. A secret technology he got his hands on in the past makes his Fafnir a bane of all energy shield reliant builds. Has once been defeated by Vasilisa in a duel.
Svyatogor's Breach: Fafnir ignores energy shields during the flight.
Vasilisa is Yaga Gang's most valued player. She helped Svyatogor Belov dispose of the previous leader of the mercenary company by hosting a not-completely-fair missile shooting competition. Her stratagems are only matched by her bravery. She tweaked her Revenant so that she doesn't have to wait for support and now enjoys always being ahead of her team.
Vasilisa's Wisdom: Revenant restored a portion of its durability the moment its ability goes on cooldown. The amount of durability restored depends on the damage dealt while the ability was active.
