The Karrastra Destructor is the Vasari's Siege Frigate.

Official Description: While of only minimal use in ship-to-ship combat, the Karrastra's true purpose lies in planetary bombardment which it accomplishes with ease. Not many Karrastra's were present in the original Exodus Fleet and almost none were constructed until over a year into the war with the Traders. Previous engagements at scheduled resource acquisition drops required next to no siege capabilities and no future need was anticipated. Production rates have increased dramatically since.


Functionally identical to the other two faction's planetary siege frigates, the Karrastra's sole purpose is to attack a planet. Unique to it is the positioning of its armament, allowing it to return fire on any defenders while it continues its siege, though its damage output makes this a token gesture. Late game research allows for it to attack from 40% further away than other siege frigates, allowing it to engage planets faster and stay out of range of some of their defenses.
