The GTC Ticonderoga is a large Terran cruiser patterned after the GTC Fenris and GTC Leviathan. The model appears in modified form in the Terran-Vasudan War Project as the TFg Atropos and in Twist of Fate under its original name. The Twist of Fate version has a different turret setup and mildly altered geometry compared to either of the previous layouts and is a powerful "assault cruiser" that served as a forerunner to corvettes. Ticonderogas have powerful anti-fighter and anti-cap weaponry and are the primary heavy warship used by Terran forces in the first chapter of Twist of Fate.

Twist of Fate Tech Room Description

The Ticonderoga assault cruiser has been the most common line warship since the beginning of the Terran-Vasudan War. Far larger and more powerful than the Fenris or Leviathan-classes, the Ticonderoga mounts two railguns and numerous defensive turrets. While the smaller cruisers serve mostly as skirmishers and escorts, these ships form the thrust of a GTA offensive, using their heavy firepower to crush anything that stands in their way. These cruisers are currently being phased out in favor of the new Boreas-class corvettes, but many remain in service.

The Twist of Fate version is classified as a cruiser, but is essentially the Terran-Vasudan War ancestor of the Deimos. Like the Deimos, it's a medium-sized (although the Ticonderoga is considerably smaller than the Deimos), powerful warship that can fill a variety of roles. The Ticonderoga has some of the strongest defenses of any Terran-Vasudan War-era capships; four FighterKillers and a bevy of blob turrets provide a formidable defense to enemy fighters, and overall anti-fighter strength is much better than the Fenris and Orion. Two railguns and a torpedo turret provide plenty of anti-capital firepower. A flotilla of Ticonderogas can even give a Typhon a hard time.
