The Barracuda class destroyer is a large size fire support battleship designed and manufactured by GameBreaker Automations.
It is noteworthy for being the first destroyer type vehicle to utilize newer defensive countermeasures in its escort role.
The Barracuda is built to act as an intermediate vehicle between full-size battleships and smaller corvettes and frigates. It is lightly armored, utilizing most of its available volume for maximized firepower and destructive power.
Unlike full size battleships, the long slim profile of the Barracuda allows for it to maintain high attacking speeds and maximum manoeuvrability in high-risk engagements.
It is intended to act as an escort destroyer for larger vehicles such as the Stormcloud class battleship. But had been previously unavailable due to developmental problems and technical difficulties with its APS modules.
It is currently offered in its base unpainted form, and in a naval base color scheme.
Its primary armament is comprised of six Twin Barrel Gun (TBG) Turrets, the design of which is a licensed copy of a similar weapon built by Vpoliisi. This same model of gun turret is also used as a secondary turret on the Stormcloud class battleship.
The vehicle is further surrounded by a full broadside of 13 AA Guns on the left and right sides, with another 6 AA Guns in the forward and rear positions.
6x TBG Turret (3 Front, 3 Rear)
13x Broadside AA Guns
6x Forward AA Guns
6x Tail AA Guns
The Barracuda carries the lightest armor of its class in order to maintain its agility in the heat of battle. As such it is fitted with a full-coverage Active Protection System (similar to the type installed on the earlier ATVOTA-2) consisting of three centralized modules to protect against explosive and incendiary projectiles.
The protective radius of the APS varies around the vehicle, it is defaulted to 25 blocks at the front and rear ends, with the middle body being set to 30 blocks.
Note that the vehicle's own weapons cannot be fired when the APS is in effect.
The Barracuda class destroyer has a crew of 6 operators in the following layout:
1x Commander (Pilot)
1x Forward Battery Gunner
1x Rear Battery Gunner
2x AA Gunners
Weapons, armor, and equipment and consumables are provided on board.
Important: Do not fire the Turrets on the two lower arcs when they are pointed forward / rearward.
