The Retaliator is the United Earth Empire's premiere, if aging, jump-capable heavy bomber. Massive formations of these spacecraft running long-range strike missions are not an uncommon sight around the fringes of the empire.


With a distinctive elongated silhouette that is dotted with turrets and carrying a massive bomb load, the Retaliator is an effective symbol of Imperial might. As such, they are the frequent centerpiece of Space Force recruiting posters. Retaliators are ground-based, with all but the largest carriers unable to operate them effectively. Heavily modified Retaliators are becoming commonplace on the civilian market as the design ages and earlier production runs are sold off en-mass. Outfitted to carry cargo instead of antimatter bombs and with the waste turret positions typically swapped for makeshift living quarters, they make a good medium freighter or a basic explorer. Some have even been converted into long-hop passenger spacecraft!

Modules[edit | edit source]

In August 2015, the Retaliator was remodelled as a modular craft. As such, Citizens who had bought the original version of the ship were presented with the new edition pre-fitted with two torpedo bays.

Other module variants include:

  • A dropship module, said to be intended for use in future Star Marine missions.
  • A living space module, which will allow for the ship to be used as a personal transport, as well as to take NPC on long-distance trips.
  • Cargo modules that offer extra storage space.

Modules are set to be added into the game sometime after Arena Commander 2.0.
