This is the pirate retrofitted Krosov. It also serves the same role as the Krosov, unsuprisingly, but it does have some differences: the Hull and Armor is double of that of the Krosov. However, the Pillager does not come equipped with shields.
Using the PillagerEditThrough whatever means that you get the Pillager, be it Pirate Mercenaries, Domination, or other abilities and research, the Pillager functions almost entirely the same as a Krosov, and it is best sent in when nearing the end of a battle to bombard a planet (Owned Pillagers also gain the Heavy Fallout ability if it has been researched).
Fighting the PillagerEdit
Unfortunately, the Pirates usually rush towards the target as soon as it exits phase space. Pillagers should be the first ships taken out when you're up against a pirate raid. However, when assaulting a pirate base they can be focused last as their damage is almost negligible against actual ships. The Pillager's only space-to-space weapon is a single heavy laser cannon, like its TEC counterpart.
