Jackson's Revenge is an independent terran battlecruiser. It dated back to the early days of the Terran Confederacy. Up to the Second Great War, the ship had dozens of captains. All were killed in action or by the ship's crew.[1]

HistoryEdit

During the Second Great War, the mercenary ship offered its services to Raynor's Raiders after they acquired the final component of the xel'naga device from the Sigma Quadrant Worldship.[1]

AbilitiesEdit

Blasts a target with a devastating plasma cannon, causing 300 damage.

MissilePod SC2 Icon1 Missile Pods

Grants the battlecruiser the Missile Pods ability. Missile Pods deals 40 splash damage (+50 damage to light units) to air units over an area of effect.

Laser batteries are fearsome weapons across wide stretches of space, but they leave a battlecruiser vulnerable to small interceptors. The ATVX Missile Pod can show up this weakness by instantly bombarding an area with a massive barrage of anti-air missiles.

The battlecruiser produces a shield which absorbs 200 damage. The ability is not smartcast.

The defensive matrix is a temporary deflection field that helped save countless assets from a premature death during the original Brood War. Now the minds at LarsCorp have adapted this technolgoical marvel to protect the massive hull of the Minotaur-class battlecruiser.

Increase starting energy of all units by 100. Increase maximum energy of all units by 100.[2]

This reactor has a larger energy reserve on startup and can hold a much larger charge. Now our specialist units can use their abilities the moment they hit the battlefield, and they can store more energy when idle for long periods of time. Specialists units are units that use energy, such as the medic, ghost, and wraith.

Damaged mechanical units recover hit points when out of combat, at a rate of 0.6015 each second.[2]

Our ship and vehicle hulls are now made from a material called Regenerative Bio-Steel. This material uses internal nanobots to slowly repair any damage the hull sustains. While this regeneration process is much slower than conventional SCV repairs, it can be the difference between life and death if no SCVs are available.

Attack upgrades improve attack cooldown of affected units by 5% per level.[3]

These self-replicating ultra capacitors reduce the reload time of weapons and systems. Now each of the weapon upgrades at the armory and engineering bay increases attack speed by 5% in addition to increasing damage.

Armor upgrades increase health of affected units by 5% per level.[3]

We have created a new lightweight alloy called vanadium. Vanadium diffuses weapon impacts much more efficiently than traditional armor plating, and it better preserves the life of our units. Now each of the armor upgrades in the armory and engineering bay increases unit life by 5% in addition to increasing armor.

DevelopmentEdit

  • The mercenary battlecruiser's name was originally Duke's Revenge. Remnants of this can still be viewed in the game editor, where the Jackson's Revenge and its assets are still sometimes referred to as Duke's Revenge. It was possibly named for Edmund Duke, who famously commanded the Norad II and Norad III; a cut line from Graven Hill asks Jim Raynor if he knew Duke, which may have been dialogue referring to Duke's Revenge.[4]

NotesEdit

  • The Loki uses an enlarged version of Jackson's Revenge's model.
  • On Brutal difficulty, some pre-placed battlecruisers such as those in "Cutthroat" and "Breakout" are changed into Jackson's Revenge.
