Void Stalker-class Battleship The Void Stalker is the pinnacle of Eldar starship technology, and is the Eldar equivalent of an Imperial Navy battleship. Its speed and maneouverability make fighting a Void Stalker a tricky prospect in and of itself for any foe, but when combined with its Eldar Weapons Batteries, Pulsar Lances, and squadrons of Attack Craft like Darkstar Fighters and Eagle Bombers, the Void Stalker becomes a match for any starship that dares to face it in battle.
Eclipse-class Cruiser The Eldar Eclipse-class Cruiser is arguably the most effective Attack Craft carrier in the entire Gothic Sector due to the immense speed and maneouverability that is common to all Eldar spacecraft, including the Eclipse. While most carriers must maintain a considerable distance from the foe, thus increasing the amount of time its fighters and bombers spend approaching their target, the Eclipse-class can deploy its Darkstar Fighters and Eagle Bombers, unleash a Pulsar Lance barrage while launching its attack craft and then retreat to safety. Coupled with the incredible effectiveness of Eldar attack craft, the Eclipse is an almost-perfect convoy raider and was the bane of many an Imperial commander during the Gothic War.
Shadow-class Cruiser The Shadow-class Cruiser is a typical example of all Eldar capital ships. Its multiple solar sails give it tremendous speed and manoeuvrability, able to outrun even the Escort ships of most other intelligent races of the galaxy. The Shadow-class combines tremendous speed, manoeuvrability, and offensive firepower into a single, highly-effective package. The bane of Imperial shipping in the Koronus Expanse, Shadow-class Cruisers normally form the centre of an Eldar Corsair strike fleet.
Solaris-class Light Cruiser Unfortunately for many captains, it is easily mistaken for the Aurora class and this has led to many tactical mistakes. It has the typical large solar sail at the rear and was first identified by the Imperium during anti-pirate operations in the Yurol Nebula. The force was designed to push the forces of Prince Ilmarth of the Soul Reavers pirates onto the guns of a second fleet, though the battle was in trouble from the beginning. The high speed of the Solaris, coupled with its high strength Eldar Weapons Batteries (with limited traverse similar to the Aurora) allowed them to battle with Imperial escorts within the asteroid belt of the Arikar System. Finding themselves outgunned, the Imperial escorts retreated to the main fleet and the plan changed to a blockade of the Arikar system, but the speed of the Solaris vessels made this blockade impossible to maintain and after an ineffective year the blockade was lifted and the Soul Reavers are still at large in the Yurol Nebula. Later it was found that just a force of three Solaris class and six smaller vessels managed to hold the Arikar system against the Imperial fleet. The Eldar were led by the Void Serpent.
