The Bull Frost Tactical Beam, also known as the TerSlashBlue, is a tactical slashing beam cannon used by the GTVA in the FreeSpace 2 mod Blue Planet. The Bull Frost has damage ratings similar to the Aurora Wake beam, as well as the same effective range, but exhibits a much shorter recharge time and beam lifetime. It serves as the primary armament of the Diomedes-class corvette and secondary armament of the Raynor- and Titan-class destroyers.
Blue Planet Tech Room Description
One of a new generation of Terran weapons systems, the 'Bull Frost' tactical beam is a product of the Threat Exigency Initiative's adaptation of Shivan beam technology. Using the Akheton Corporation's adaptive fire control suite, a dedicated meson reactor, and a cryogenic slurry heat sink, the Bull Frost offers rapid-fire engagement options against multiple turrets and subsystems. The Bull Frost serves as the primary armament of the Diomedes strike corvette and as a battery weapon on the Raynor-class and Titan-class destroyers.
