Vergilius Powergaming Evaluation:
The first of our armored auxiliaries surveyed. Prince David enters at destroyer costs, with destroyer armor, a cruiser hull. The AA is weak and the gunnery is pretty poor at range-3, though at least it has the attack. 8 points is probably correct, but would you pick this unit instead of destroyer? It should serve as an interesting option that you can trot out once in a while, though it probably offers more for the scenario players than the serious gamers. C
