The Chmmr Avatar is a state of the art ship with few real foes, combining the best traits of the Mmrnmhrm X-form and the Chenjesu Broodhome. With medium speed and a fairly good turn-rate the Avatar shouldn't be taken lightly. Its main weapon is a strong and deadly Terra-watt laser and its tractor beam would make even the bravest enemy captain sweat. It is orbited by three Zap-satellites for point defense.

Main Weapon: Terra-Watt Laser

Improving the X-Form's deadly lasers with crystalline technology, Chmmr Designers bring in the most devestating laser in the galaxy. Capable of rending ANYTHING to pieces in few seconds, this laser turns a face-to-face battle with the Avatar into a suicide run.

Secondary Weapon: Tractor Beam

The Laser's one flaw was always its short range. Well, no more should you worry about it. The Tractor Beam is capable of tractoring ships towards the Avatar's laser-jaws. Only fast-and-heavy ships can hope to evade this awsome beam. Slow ships or fast but light weighted ships (Such as the Shofixti Scout and especially the Yehat Terminator) cannot evade this powerful tractoring. Light weight ships can actually be thrown into immense "hyperspacing" speeds. It's is quite funny to see a Terminator passing through the galaxy in speeds three and four times higher than those of a Slylandro Probe. The Arilou Skiff, being unaffected by gravity, is not affected by the Tractor beam.

Additional Special: Zap Satellites

The Zap-sats are a reimplementation of the Broodhome DOGIs. Three AI-Controlled laser-turrets orbit around the Avatar, providing it with point-defense against most types of attacks. Each zap-sat has 12 hit-points, and when all three are functional, the Avatar is nearly immune to weapons with 3 or less hit-points.

Tactical Overview

Don't mess with an Avatar. There are clearly few ships that can actually match it.

Strong against: Most ships

Weak against: The Kohr-Ah Marauder's F.R.I.E.D Emmiters rip the Zap-sats into pieces. While the Kzer-Za Dreadnought's fighters are pointless versus the zap-sats, the Dreadnought has a better range and its fusion blasts can tear down the Avatar extremely quickly. The Druuge Mauler can recoil out of laser range while pummeling the Avatar with its cannon. The Chenjesu Broodhome can prove a worthy adversary as well. The Shofixti Scout's glory device and the Androsynth Guardian in comet form prove very nasty against the Avatar. Also, the Utwig Jugger can be a real pain to an Avatar. A highly skilled Pkunk Fury pilot can achieve some measure of success, but this is quite difficult. A Yehat Terminator, if hurled into "hyperspacing speed" can rain fire on the Avatar but this is also not an easy thing to do.

But the only ship that can fight the Avatar with impunity is the Thraddash Torch, as it's plasma afterburner acts as both means for evading the Avatar's attacks, and destroying its sattelites.
