Tac fighters

The Hyperion appears as a battlecruiser hero unit in the mission "With Friends Like These...".

The Hyperion possesses a Yamato Cannon ability and can deploy tac fighters to aid it in battle. Destroying a pirate capital ship as an optional objective grants it an Electric Field ability that disables nearby enemies for a short time. It can also use the Warp Jump ability to teleport a short distance. When damaged, the Hyperion automatically repairs itself over time.

As the player gathers mineral pick-ups in the level, the Hyperion will be upgraded. Its weapons and Yamato Cannon will deal more damage, its health and armor will increase, it will be able to build and deploy more tac fighters, and the Electric Field ability will stun enemies longer.

AbilitiesEdit

Blasts a target with a devastating plasma cannon, causing 300 damage +100 damage for each level of upgrades the Hyperion has, up to 600 damage at max level.

DevelopmentEdit

For the mission "With Friends Like These" in Heart of the Swarm, the Hyperion originally had additional abilities. It could create a temporary shield to absorb damage, had an Ion Thrusters ability to grant a temporary speed boost, could deploy point-defense drones to shoot down incoming enemy missiles, and could manufacture and deploy cloaked banshees, which could only attack structures.[1]
