The Purge Vessel is the Advent's Siege Frigate.

Official Description: To the humans of the Trader Worlds, the shape of the Purge Vessel is reminiscent of a great bird, but it‘s one bird nobody wants to see in their sky. Lightly shielded with moderate armor, the Purge Vessel can rain down powerful kinetic bolts onto an undefended world, laying it to waste. Purge Vessel crews are recruited from amongst the most zealous of Advent converts, and see themselves as direct incarnations of the Unity‘s desire for retribution. Although the ship is not heavily armored or shielded, Purge Vessels will often rush through a contested area in their eagerness to deliver justice to the unfaithful.


More expensive than the other faction's planetary siege frigates, the Purge sustains a higher base armor, making it very slightly more resilient to enemy fire. The forward-mounted weapons are not very effective against other ships; like all siege frigates, the Purge Vessel should avoid combat with other frigates at all costs.


Competitively these are very common in certain situations. Even should you finish off your opponent with your fleet it is always wise to follow up with Purge vessels and not give them a chance to regather their strength or move to another location. As soon as you are about to finish an opponent produce a small handful of these and let them bombard an enemy planet. Keep them supported with a small handful of units, while the rest of your fleet goes to wreak havoc somewhere else.
