Although I would support this idea in general, it might be not necessary if the Desolator had a role to fulfill in the chaos fleet. I'm quite sure that chaos will lose the AP upgrade in a rebalancing like the orks just did, making lance brawlers more viable. Add in a +25 speed upgrade which all other factions have now and the Deso could at least justify its existence.

Absolutely NO +25 SPEED UPGRADE FOR CHAOS.
Sorry for Caps, but this is a very bad idea. I mean, VERY. We've already had it (although the bonus was higher) and what happened? Everyone was taking it because it was absolutely mandatory upgrade for chaos. For other races it's utterly optional even for Eldar because they already have plenty of speed, but chaos would have to take it as first upgrade for every ship (other than automated refuelling on carriers), and that would pretty much leave 4 upgrade spots to customize your vessel. Even if it had a malus like Mezoa pattern rives it still would be taken every single time, and mess you up if engines are critted. Augur probe/micro warp jump in skills department is already plenty enough, having "options" that are in fact a must is no fun.
Just give Desolator +38 speed (38 not 25, because it's supposed to be level with cruisers which have 188 speed) and all's good. Plus other modifications that have already been mentioned by myself and others.
