Shadow Phoenix Mk II is a small, nimble crescent-shaped fighter. It's fast when Meltdown isn't active, but it cannot fire. Upon activating Meltdown, the ship loses almost all its agility while gaining a large degree of firepower. It can be used for hit-and-run strikes, as Meltdown recharges relatively fast. Its low shielding and mass means it can be preyed upon by large, massive ships or other small interceptors.
Main configuration has lasers, but is incapable of firing them.
Meltdown can put out a lot of damage quickly.
Meltdown doesn't take too long to reload, but still, use it wisely.
