How to use in your fleet
Arguably one of the best non-superweapon ship type in the game, Spirecraft Translocators move fast, have high health, fire high-damage shots rapidly on multiple targets while knocking them back, and has bonus against light ships, making them excellent all-around.
Interestingly, when defending your planets with Spirecraft Translocators, positioning is important. It is usually a bad idea to set them in free-roaming mode, as they would be very capable of pushing enemy ships towards their target.
How to counter when in the AI fleet
AI loves using Spirecraft Translocators in exogalactic strikeforces. A Mk-IV Spirecraft Translocator, coupling with a stack of flagships and other starships, can take down multiple forcefields in seconds. It is not rare to lose in mid-game this way. Kill it with prejudice.
A Mk-II Spirecraft Ram can kill a Mk-IV-or-less Spirecraft Translocator.
The texture for Spirecraft Translocator is the same as Spirecraft Ion Blaster in previous releases. In fact, Spirecraft Translocators retain the identifier "SpirecraftIon" in localization files.
