The pirate capital ship is a type of warship.


A pirate capital ship was used by the Kel-Morian Combine to lead their mining operations in an asteroid field. During a conflict between Raynor's Raiders and Mira's Mercs, the Raiders detected the Kel-Morians and attacked them, engaging the pirate capital ship and destroying it.[1]

Heart of the SwarmEdit

The pirate capital ship appears in the Heart of the Swarm mission "With Friends Like These..." where engaging it is an optional objective. The pirate capital ship can cloak, deploy squadrons of griffon fighters to aid it in battle, and release an electric field that disables the Hyperion and any nearby tac fighters for several seconds. Destroying the pirate ship equips Hyperion with the generator.[3]

Co-op MissionsEdit

Two pirate capital ships appear in the mission "Rifts to Korhal" where they can be destroyed as a bonus objective. The ships can emit an electric pulse that stuns nearby enemy units for a time, and can use a Bombing Run ability to deal damage to all units in a line. Destroying the ships earns bonus experience.


The ship is called a "Cerberus" In the Galaxy Map Editor. There is also a doodad of a normal ship and a docked version used in some multiplayer maps called a "Cerberus construction dock".[4]
