Though small for a Destroyer, the Gerushda carries significant firepower and has earned a reputation as a 'Cap-Killer' for its remarkably high kill ratio against other capital ships. With three by three main guns, four smaller guns and eight point-defense turrets the Gerushda is already a match for most warships of its size, but the addition of a fixed, forward firing energy lance - capable of cutting through starship hulls like butter - makes it a formidable threat to anything smaller than a battleship. Variations in the cited figures for hull length are thought to depend on whether or not the scatter-fairings either side of the main drive torch are included in the measurement or not.
