Model

Special editions

  • Ballista Dunestalker: Ballista with a dune color livery
  • Ballista Snowblind: Ballista with a grey camouflage livery

Features

  • Size 5 Anti-Fighter Missiles: An octet of size 5 missiles are perfect for deterring nimble fighters, even capable of destroying a Cutlass in a single hit
  • Size 7 Torpedoes: For larger targets, these torpedoes are more nimble than standard torpedoes, for bringing down Medium-sized threats, such as the Valkyrie or Freelancer
  • Rotatable Turret and Gunner's Seat: All missiles and torpedoes must be fired from the gunner seat in the rear, requiring either the driver to swap positions, or a dedicated gunner to track and fire on targets.
  • Deployable Stabilizers: For a stable platform and to compensate for recoil, stabilizing legs must be deployed while stationary before firing the missiles and torpedoes
