due to firstly a lack of lances and secondly my choice of list Iíve come across the fact that Iím going to have to use a large number of tyrant class cruisers and to be honest... Iím kind of concerned.
from what i can tell the tyrant has the following advantages and disadvantages
-A gunboat armed with prow torpedoes rather than a nova cannon
-Strong weapon batteries
-Longer range than the other imperial cruisers with 4 of its 10 weapon batts
-The option to boost the range of all its weapon batteries to battle cruiser levels
-Good number of close range weapon batteries (3rd strongest in the imperial navy after Emperor/Oberon and retribution/dominator)
-Slightly cheaper than its rival the dominator
-Unless upgraded the longer-range weapon batteries are sub par and its more worthwhile to go for close range combat unless upgraded.
-Is outclassed by its sister ship the dominator in terms of brute firepower.
While I don't have much choice in the matter (I really like my Gothic class cruisers...) I can see potential in this class but the general reputation of the tyrant as the worst of the cruisers nips at the back of my mind, what do the rest of you think?

[16:20] <@Kaiser-> He usually is.

I love the Tyrant. When playing against Eldar, it has no equal, and when playing against races with Shields, it's a great way to drop them before having the Lunars and Gothics open fire.
I always bring no less then 2 of them, usually accompanying a Gothic or Lunar.

Tyrants on their own are worst than Lunars, but work their best when collaborating with Gothics, Dauntless, big ships with long range lances. A three cruisers battle line with Gothic and two Tyrants would be your best bet.
