The Vanguard Fleet is the personal detachment of Dominion starships and soldiers that accompany the changeling known as Odo. As one of the few Founders with an affinity for life as a solid, he was placed in command of this fleet in an effort to combat the re-emerging Hur'q threat.
Odo's time spent living among solids has given him a greater degree of empathy and understanding for the sanctity of life, including those of his loyal Jem'Hadar soldiers. As such, he has commanded additional resources and research be pooled toward increasing the Vanguard's technological and logistical superiority, with the purpose of ensuring a greater chance of victory, and reducing or eliminating Dominion casualties.
Frequently acting as the flagship for Dominion fleets, this commanding starship is just as suited to frontline assaults as it is to leading its fellow starships in strategic strikes from a position of authority.
Vanguard starships come included with two loyal Jem’Hadar ace pilots. These expert pilots fly their own Jem’Hadar Vanguard Raiders in formation with you, never straying far from your side. Their extensive experience in team-based tactics allow them to execute powerful maneuvers at your command. In case of catastrophic ship failure, they will return back to operations shortly and automatically after a brief lockout.

The Fleet Jem'Hadar Vanguard Heavy Destroyer doesn't come equipped with any universal consoles.
However, it can equip the [Console - Universal - Enhanced Dynamic Tactical System] which allows the player to switch the Destroyer between Regenerative Mode and Tactical Mode.
While in the innate Regenerative Mode, excess power is transferred to the Auxiliary System, Starship Shield Systems skill is increased and Tachyon Inversion Beam is enabled.
Activating Tactical Mode transfers power to Weapon Systems, increases ship's Starship Targeting Systems skill granting an Accuracy bonus and enables a powerful multi-targeting Lotus capable of piercing multiple targets.

As a Vanguard starship, the Fleet Jem'Hadar Vanguard Heavy Destroyer is issued two loyal Jem'Hadar ace pilots. These expert pilots fly their own Jem'Hadar Vanguard Heavy Raiders in formation with the player. Their extensive experience in team-based tactics allow them to execute powerful maneuvers.
Jem'Hadar Vanguards can perform the following maneuvers:
All maneuvers share a cooldown, and only one may be active at a time. Wingmen may not be ordered to attack specific targets, but will instead rapidly update their targeting parameters based on the player's chosen target.
If destroyed in combat, each Wingman will automatically rejoin the player after a short lockout period has passed.
The Fleet Jem'Hadar Vanguard Heavy Destroyer comes with an Experimental Weapon slot. This additional slot does not fit standard weapons. Unlike standard starship weapons, Experimental weapons are not affected by weapon firing modes, such as those granted by bridge officer abilities.
The Fleet Jem'Hadar Vanguard Heavy Destroyer comes with a built-in Advanced Quantum Slipstream Drive which allows improved Sector Space travel speed of 107.8 (approx Warp 23) for 60 seconds instead of normal 30 seconds. Re-initializing it takes 60 seconds instead of normal 120 seconds.
Dominion starships come with standard equipment and weapons of the lowest mark available at the ship's minimum rank. The items provided are appropriate to the type of vessel and its related playing style.
This starship's equipment slots, base hull capacity and shield capacity scale as your level increases.
Equipment slots and seating
As you rank up every 10 levels, up to level 40, the ship's forward weapon slots, aft weapon slots, tactical console slots, engineering console slots, science console slots and available bridge officer (boff) abilities will slowly increase toward endgame capabilities:
This table shows how the ship's hull strength scales at each level. The base hull of all scaling starships is 10,000, which is then multiplied by the ship's hull modifier (1.2 for the Fleet Jem'Hadar Vanguard Heavy Destroyer), and then multiplied by the scaling multiplier below at each level.
