Additional Information
This article has a separate continuity.
This article is in the Battlestar Galactica Deadlock separate continuity, which is related to the Re-imagined Series. Be sure that your contributions to this article reflect the characters and events specific to this continuity only.


The Argos contains an overwhelming array of hangars and missile tubes, but hosts little in the way of self-defense.

The Argos' external hangars allow for similar wing capacity as other supercarriers, but are not as effective with squadron support and repairs.


The Argos was introduced to the game Battlestar Galactica Deadlock through the Second DLC (Downloadable content) of the first season titled "Broken Alliance". This expansion adds six ships to the game that are availible through campaign, multiplayer, skirmish and Operation Anabasis.

By the will of Lachesis

Special Abilities

Tactical Jump - The Argos can make a tactical jump during combat allowing it to quickly FTL jump to any location within a small range, where it will take a standard move from that position. Tactical Jump takes a quarter of the turn to engage, and has a 4 turn cooldown.

MP/Skrimish Note: When playing the "Propaganda" game mode, Cylon FTL-capable ships begin the match with their FTL drives on standard cooldown as if they had immediately used their jump drives at the start of the game, to prevent jumping turn 1 and capturing points. Munition Supply - The Argos carries no guns, relying entirely upon it's munitions and squadrons to assault the enemy. To compensate for it's lack of guns, the Argos is unique in that it replenishes it's munition stocks during combat. The munition supply factory on board is controlled by the Armoury subsystem, and takes about 6 turns to produce a single standard salvo of any given munition type when fully powered. All launchers are resupplied simultaneously, and resupply will begin automatically as soon as any munitions are fired. Note that even nukes may be resupplied through the Argos' Munition Supply ability. There is a display in the bottom right corner by the ship commands panel where you can see progress on Munition Supply.
