The Wun’Tux raiding ship (human reporting name “Rex”) is an odd duck; it eschews traditional Wun’Tux vessel design, opting for minimal armour and high speed. The one way in which it stays true to the central martial philosophy of its designers is in armament – it features one, underslung tunnelled bore fragmentation cannon, perfect for armour penetration.
The “Rex” sees use in two main roles. One is as a flanking vessel, able to strike at the vulnerable sides of larger vessels already entangled in combat. The near constant civil war in Wun’Tux space means the ship is always in demand.
Its other major role is as a commerce raider behind enemy lines. The quick moving, narrow-profile “Rex” can hit mercantile convoys lightning fast. Light Wun’Tux armour is still a match for the outdated weapons of most escort ships and the “Rex” is able to inflict devastating damage against cargo ships before withdrawing.
