The Thales is armed with a single Fore Gun, although this is not its main weapon- as a Corvette, it is designed to use its Reckless AP to strip enemy AP from models before another squadron follows up with less volatile assault personnel.
As a fast boarding vessel, the Thales has access to Advanced Engines, allowing it to close the distance rapidly. When not boarding, the Thales is capable of significant harrassment tactics due to its Hit and Run ability.
Meaning of the name Edit
Thales was a Greek philosopher and mathematician. It is said that he was one of the first real occidental philosophers.
On the Tabletop Edit
Although it is a boarding focused unit, a squadron of Thales can use their Fore Guns to significant effect. Capable of 15AD attacks at close range, and only costing 20 points, the Thales is an excellent harasser. Due to its Reckless crew type, the Thales is unlikely to take or hold any prize vessels- instead, use them to strip AP from target vessels before another boarding unit arrives.
